In the age of mass misinformation, Standing in the Time 不负时光 is here to remind us the importance of fact-checkers who make sure that every detail checks out. The Pretty Proofreader adaptation features an aspiring fashion magazine editor (An Yuexi) who gets stuck in a seemingly unimportant proofreader job, but slowly learns that the devil is in the details. The series will be available with English subs on viki here and on the iQiyi app.
Standing in the Time 不负时光, a remake of the hit Japanese series Pretty Proofreader / Jimi ni Sugoi! Kōetsu Girl: Kouno Etsuko, will star An Yuexi as the adorable proofreader who finds meaning in the details and Xing Zhaolin as the loner novelist whose paths cross with hers in more ways than one. The original is one of my favorite recent Japanese drama and extremely heartwarming and An Yuexi is adorable, so I hope the remake lives up to the original. The series is set to be released on October 2nd on Tencent and iQiyi.
