I’m scratching my head because I thought that this was supposed to be a remake of Rooftop Prince. Instead, the story is about two men whose lives are interchanged – one is an established chef from 1936 and the other is a wealthy young man from 2016.
The 28-episode TV series is directed by Kim Byung Soo who also directed Queen In Hyun’s Man, the k-drama that inspired the franchise in the first place. It even successfully courted Yoo In Na as one of the leads but she was replaced for Puff Guo possibly due to the blacklist rumors on k-dramas in China, which is quite a pity given that she was in the promotional posters and everything.
Whatever the real reason, the show must go on and it stars Wei Da Xun, Janice Man (Tribes and Empires) and Puff Guo.
Release Date: Nov. 9, 2016 Hunan TV (English subs on Viki).
