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.

Liang Jingkang, Guo Zifan, Rocket Girls star in realistic youth drama Project S

Deng Enxi plays Fern, a skater who thwarts the suicide attempt by a fellow student.

Tackling difficult issues like depression and autism, youth sports drama  Project S is an attempt to reinvent itself as a contender for quality youth drama by Wajijiwa, the Tencent subsidiary that manages Rocket Girls and R1SE. While their previous couple of dramas have lacked any logic and  was carried solely by idol power, this one is rooted in a much more realistic story. The remake of the three-part Thai series is currently filming its last third and will be a Tencent exclusive.

Wajijiwa is ran by Long Danni, who produced Super Girls, My Hero, Meteor Garden, and Produce 101, so it’ll be interesting where she’s headed with this drama.
