Well-Intended Love 2 is not a sequel after all, set to release on Feb. 13

Xu Kaicheng and Wang Shuang reunite for another drama that hopefully has all the cuteness of the first one but without the creepy twist.

So it turns out that Well-Intended Love 2 is actually not a direct sequel, but a similar story with the same cast, crew, and character names. The drama is loosely based on novel Heir Games: Private Sweetie 豪门游戏:私宠甜心宝贝 (yeah, it sounds that ridiculous in Chinese, too) and follows your usual rom-com troupes.

The drama is set to stream on Feb. 13 on Sohu and Tencent, no news of whether Netflix will also pick this one up. Here’s the latest trailer and some stills below the cut:

Well-Intended Love 2 releases trailer

It has just dawned on me that Xu Kaicheng and Song Weilong would look great together in a drama.

The sequel to surprise hit rom-com Well-Intended Love, Well-Intended Love 2 奈何BOSS要娶我 2 has released its first trailer. The drama is said to “stream soon” and brings back the cast of Xu Kaicheng, Wang Shuang, Yi Bochen and Li Jiaxi and director Wu Qiang. Not sure if Netflix will also pick this one up.

I never finished the first one because I got mad at the male lead for lying to her, but it was really cute up until that revelation. I’m a little surprised that they still haven’t announced to the public they were together yet, but it looks like that revelation is what the sequel will be about.

The surprise hit Well-intended Love 奈何boss要娶我2 (available on Netflix) got a sequel! I didn’t know it even began filming, but filming has concluded last week. The original cast of Xu Kaicheng, Wang Shuang, Yi Bochen and Li Jiaxi will all return for the sequel, as will the director Wu Qiang. Since it’s a Sohu exclusive, you can expect it to come out fairly soon.
