Go Go Squid! is the first breakout rom-com of the summer

Yang Zi, Li Xian, and Hu Yitian’s Go Go Squid! is the first breakout rom-com of the year, topping both TV ratings and internet streaming charts less than two weeks after airing. The drama from Croton Media (O2O, The Boss & Me) may lack any if all logic, but the awkward cuteness and chemistry between the two leads has won over fans. Plus, the male lead’s whole team is super cute. Here are some more posters and stills.
You can watch Go Go Squid! on Youtube with English subs here.

The latest teaser for fantasy romance drama Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost features Yang Zi as Jin Mi, an innocent deity who is about to injure the fire deity Xufeng (Deng Lun) to retrieve his magical internal pill and increase her own powers (thankfully he wakes up just in time to prevent the act).
