Broker was the only Miu Juan (author of The Interpreter) novel I read and liked, so I will be checking out the drama adaption despite its flaws. Starring Song Qian as a patriotic scientist and Luo Yunxi as a corporate spy, the romance drama will premiere on July 22nd.

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.

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.
