Song Yiren and Zhang Yao’s college-themed rom-com, The Best of You in My Mind ( aka The Best of You All Over The World 全世界最好的你), airs today . The original book was originally mostly just above a pair of childhood sweethearts who get together in college, but the adaptation added in an archery sideplot. I’m guessing it was aiming to stream during the Summer Olympics, but missed its mark after the Olympics got moved to next year.
The trailers look cute, but all the other Youku “sports rom-coms” out so far (Plop of Youth, Sweet Tai-Chi, and Skate Into Love ) have been various degrees of disappointing, and Song Yiren has been a hit-or-miss for me, so my hopes aren’t that high. The drama is available with English subs here.

If Skate into Love doesn’t satisfy your needs for childhood sweetheart dramas under the guise of competitive sports, you can look forward to The Best of You in My Mind 全世界最好的你. Like Skate into Love, this drama also features the seemingly competitive childhood “besties” that is arguably bullying but with the male being secretly in love with the female. The main difference is that it’s archery instead of ice skating, probably to go with the 2020 Summer Olympics (may it rest in peace).
The trailer was released yesterday, but there’s no news about a release date except for “soon”. Song Yiren and Zhang Yao star in this, and I’m sold on the trailer.Continue reading

Despite a change in the male lead from Arthur Chen to Wang Hedi, the trailer for the new season of Ever Night looks imo even better than the previous one, with better CGI and a more crispy edit. The drama brings back director Yang Yang as well as most of the first season’s cast – Song Yiren, Yuan Bingyan, Dylan Kuo, Sun Zujun, etc. Yang Chaoyue joins the cast as the god Haotian, while Lian Lian replaces Tong Yao as the princess. There’s still no broadcasting date announced.Continue reading
