Rumors of Yang Mi and Huang Xuan reuniting in a drama based on the novel of The Interpreter author. It will be an antsy type adventure drama. So basically another avalanche trip number two?
New show in the making with production behind With You, Back in Time, and My Huckleberry Friends. It’s a campus drama that’s based on the novel My One and Only Love by Mu Fusheng and will depict with a teacher-student relationship with a filming estimate of mid March 2018. At first this novel sounds a bit unfamiliar, but I looked at the author and recognized that a particular novel of hers revolved around this plot. The novel was previously known as Exclusive Memory and if you search up this novel in the website Shusheng Bar you will find the synopsis translated along with commentaries (spoiler alert).
Poster released for the drama Go Go Squid with the production behind Love O2O. The drama is based on the novel Honey Stewed Squid (translations found here, translated by Hoju from Fanatical/Hui3r). Basically tells the story of a girl who fell in love at first sight of a male geniusssss pro-gamer and she slowly learns her way in winning his heart by starting out gaming as well (she’s a cosplay singer). Not sure if the drama will make any major changes. It seems that the female is written out for the drama to be a genius of her own so who knows?
