Promo Round-Up: The Best of You in My Mind

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.

Song Yiren, Zhang Yao’s childhood sweethearts drama releases trailer

I’ve never watched anything with Zhang Yao before, but he’s super cute in the trailer.

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.

Ever Night 2 releases trailer

Wang Hedi replaces Arthur Chen Feiyu in Ever Night 2

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.

Song Yiren, Gong Jun switch tastes in Flavour It’s Yours

This poster makes me ship them already.

When chef Lu Weixun (Gong Jun) and He Buzui (Song Yiren) accidentally switch their sense of taste – that is, they can only taste what the other one tastes. Even worse, He Buzui was born without a sense of taste. To save his career, Lu Weixun takes He Buzui on a series of flavourful adventures to help her regain her and therefore his sense of taste.

Song Yiren and Gong Jun’s new drama, Flavour It’s Yours 看见味道的你 (formerly called 与其微醺何不醉, has released a set of promotional posters and first MV’s. I don’t know the rest of the cast other than Song Yiren but the promos for the drama have been pretty cute so far and Song Yiren’s always adorable. The drama is set to air on November 7 on iQiyi, so it’ll probably be available with English subs on the app.
