The first drama produced by the woman who still holds the record for highest drama viewership, Everyone Wants to Meet You 谁都渴望遇见你 released its first trailer today. Starring Zhang Zhehan, Zhang Ruonan, and Riley Wang, the series is a tale of a woman who can communicate with plants and two heirs fighting for both her and the family firm.

Everyone Wants to Meet You 谁都渴望遇见你 is a fantasy romance drama starring Zhang Zhehan as Zhang Min, a hotel manager and the heir to a corporate firm. Zhang Ruonan(Cry Me A Sad River) costars as Luo Xi, an orphan girl who can communicate with plants.
The Shang dynasty epic stars Wu Jinyan, Zhang Zhehan, Bao Jianfeng, Gillian Chung, Merxat, Xu Kai, Li Yitong, Puff Kuo, Jiang Yiyi, Hai Lu , Bai Yu, Bai Lu, Chen Shu, Liu Min, Lian Lian, Deng Sha, Zhang Jianing, He Hongshan, and Liu Zhiyang.
Given their successes, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Zhaoge airing soon.
