Should she follow her heart or marry someone who seems suitable?
In Find Yourself 资深少女的初恋, a 30-year-old designer ( Victoria Song Qian) must choose between a younger, financially unstable beau (Song Weilong) and a more “suitable” relationship with an exec (Wang Yaoqing) in this rom-com. The series released its first trailer today in time for the Hong Kong Film Festival.
What happened to Song Qian? I feel like all her projects since Moonshine & Valentinehave been really good fits for her and have pretty unique set-ups. Even her acting doesn’t seem that out of place anymore. Her other projects includes The Broker with Luo Yunxi and The Moon Knows Not My Heartwith Ou Hao.
Upcoming romance drama Find Yourselfhas released its first set of stills after wrapping up in November. Song Qian (Moonshine and Valentine) and Song Weilong play a couple with a ten-year age gap, while Wang Yaoqing (Entrepreneurial Age) plays a successful and mature executive who is attracted to the heroine.
Inspired by Journey to the West, An Oriental Odyssey 盛唐幻夜 stars Wu Qian (Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace) as Ye Yuan’an, the daughter of an official in the Ministry of Revenue who loves to solve crimes. (Trailer)
Could this be the first hard sci-fi drama to succeed?
Sci-fi drama Hard Memory: Prisoner Under Air 失忆之城之空气的囚徒 tells of a city in need of memories and oxygen. In the near future, the populace are imprisoned in a walled “city” as their memories are farmed by the ruling class. I imagine they must really need oxygen outside of the walled city since not giving people enough oxygen is probably not the best way to get memories.
Han Geng plays a boxer who helps the poor to win oxygen through fighting matches. The sci-fi drama is produced by and stars Han Geng. Janice Man, Kenny Kwan, Zhang Yuxi join his team while Shawn Yue and Zhang Yujian play the antagonists.
I Don’t Like the World, I Only Like You is being adapted into a drama, which has taken on the shorter name of I Only Like You / Le Coup De Foudre 我只喜欢你. Wu Qian (A Life Time Love) plays the female lead, while Zhang Yujian (best known for his role as Prince Jing’s subordinate in Nirvana in Fire) plays her husband Yan Mo.
