Jade Lover 翡翠恋人 is a 35-episode Chinese drama produced by DMG Entertainment. It is also dubbed as Diamond Lover 2 in an attempt to recreate the success of its predecessor which featured a Korean-Chinese collaboration between Rain and Tang Yan. This time around, the drama features a fresh pairing led by Korean actor Lee Jong Suk and Chinese actress Zheng Shuang.

Set during the 1930s, the story centers around Shen Chen Xi, the daughter of a former magnate whose family falls to ruin after going bankrupt. Her experiences thereafter help her grow from someone muddled in love to an inspirational goddess. Bai Luo Han is a man treading morally ambiguous territory by working indiscriminately with both the good and bad. Whilst he appears cold and calculating on the outside, inside is a kind-hearted man constantly on the lookout for Chen Xi.

The plot is quite run of the mill but at least there’s some potentially exciting conflict given Bai Luo Han’s trade and the fact that it is a Republican era drama. For that alone, I already like it more than Diamond Lovers, which I never had a chance to watch. On a completely different note, I just realized that Zheng Shuang reminds me so much of Jin Se Yeon. For a second there, I thought this was Doctor Stranger
