Lay Zhang Yixing is an extremely busy bee lamb these days as he jumps straight to his next drama Operation Love 求婚大作战, his first ever as the main lead.
The 32-episode Chinese drama adapted from a 2007 Japanese drama of the same name. It tells the story of a guy who misses the chance to confess his feelings to a girl until it is too late. Luckily, he lives in a fictional world where an angel gives him a second shot at love.
The plot must be something else considering that it also spouted a Korean remake starring Yoo Seung Ho in 2012. Lay Zhang plays the titular lover boy opposite Chen Du Ling, a new actress who gained fame as an internet personality. In fact, she once dominated the online polls as the number one campus beauty so the school girl persona is probably not a big shift from reality. The best part is veteran actor Julian Cheung (Sword of Legends Movie) also joins the cast as the matchmaking angel.
Release Date: April 24, 2017 on Dragon TV
