Over the Sea I Come To You 带着爸爸去留学 features Sun Honglei and Zeng Shunxi in a problematic father-son relationship. Xin Zhilei and Jiang Yiyi and Liu Mintao and Tan Jianci costar as the other two parent-child combos. [Extended Synopsis]
The 46 episode drama premieres tonight on Dragon TV / Zhejiang TV.
This final trailer is awesome:
We get our first glimpse of the three brothers in the first trailer for upcoming Republican drama New World. There’s the local jail boss (Sun Honglei), the Kuomintang government official (Zhang Luyi) and the policeman (Yin Fang), and the three brothers go through various internal struggles before finally deciding to band together and welcome the Communists into Beiping. Weibo video here if the Youtube video doesn’t work.
Upcoming family drama Over the Sea I Come To You 带着爸爸去留学 stars Sun Honglei as a father who saves up every little penny to fund his son’s studies abroad, and is forced to join his son (Zeng Shunxi) on his exchange to the US after his wife’s visa is rejected.
Set in the weeks before the liberation of Beiping by the Communists, the new Republican drama is aptly titled New World 新世界, and revolves around the lives of three friends, played by Sun Honglei (To Be A Better Man), Zhang Luyi (The Patriot) and Yin Fang (Operation Red Sea) and the conflicts that arise due to their different beliefs.
Hu Ge’s most anticipated drama since the end of Nirvana in Fire in 2015, Game of Hunting follows protagonist Zheng Qiudong’s journey from an idealistic entrepreneur to a skilled headhunter.
However, the path is far from smooth – his business fails after Bai Liqin’s (Zu Feng) death, and the teaser suggests he also spends time in prison after being betrayed by girlfriend (Jian Renzi). Thankfully Qiudong befriends wise inmate Liu Liangti (cameo by Sun Honglei), who points him in the right direction after he is released. The 45 episode drama begins airing tonight.
Drama opening theme (I’m intrigued by all the symbolism):
Go Fighting! 极限挑战 is one of the two variety shows I follow religiously (the other being Who’s the Murderer? 明星大侦探), and Season 3 of the popular variety show is finally ready to premiere tomorrow night.
Sun Honglei, Huang Bo, Huang Lei, Show Luo, Wang Xun and Lay Zhang Yixing are all returning for the latest installment, and I’m looking forward to seeing them tackle more fish-out-of-water scenarios over the next twelve weeks.
Hu Ge’s new drama Game of Hunting 猎场 (previously translated as Hunting Ground) is finally going to see the light of day after a lengthy legal dispute between the production company and broadcasters Hunan TV and LeTV, and has released an official trailer ahead of its premiere in the third quarter of the year.

See hot Huayi President Wang Zhonglei and gentleman-like Sun Honglei below the cut. I’m sad because I just found out Wang Zhonglei’s married and has kids.
Why is it that everyone’s mother loves Sun Honglei? The man’s not ancient and his charm transcends the generations. Despite his being typecast as a villain for much his career, it was the subtle humor that he seamlessly injected into those roles that made me a fan. It remains to be seen if he can do it for a full movie, such as with the upcoming romantic comedy, My Fair Gentleman (Previously called Dirt Rich in Shanghai). It has a Pygmalion-like plot where he plays the Eliza Doolittle to Kelly Lin‘s Higgins. I’ve grown to really like Kelly Lin and I think she’d play really well off of Sun Honglei, so I’ve been looking forward to this movie. However, the script really has to be much better than what’s been revealed in the trailer.
