My Ruby My Love 一粒红尘 is a 35-episode Chinese TV series adapted from a novel of the same name by Du Mu Zhou 独木舟 that tells the love story of a rich man meeting a poor girl. He is the general manager of a premier jeweller who discovers the heroine’s talent for design and hires her as an employee. She brings along her baggage as a breadwinner who has to support everyone in her family including her boyfriend.
The series stars Nicky Wu (Legend of Zu 2), Ying Er (Sword of Legends 2), Ye Zu Xin and Ming Ren Yan Kai. It seems like an okay cast for an okay drama with a plot that sounds mediocre at best.
Nicky Wu hasn’t exactly been able to follow up Scarlet Heart with another hit though it is nothing to scoff at because not only is he successful at running his own production company but he is also happily married to Cecilia Liu.
That said, my appreciation for him may have waned over the years but he does look best when playing a suave, mature business executive which is technically like an extension of himself. I threw in way more pictures than usual so you can see for yourself.
