Whoever it was that came up with the idea, thank you! Both were announced today as the leads for the fairytale-like c-drama romance Sweet Dreams 一千零一夜 which tells a story between two people whose coincidental meeting sparks true love. Deng Lun (Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost) posted on weibo, “I am Bo Hai… Love to me… is a difficult problem that I never had.” Dilraba Dilmurat (The Flame’s Daughter) also introduced herself by saying, “I am Ling Ling Qi, not a spy, but specializes in solving all sorts of problems.”
It’s no secret that we love all things Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms here and have pretty much shipped Dilraba with all her shippable co-stars from Vengo Gao to Vin Zhang. A lot of her leading men are colleagues from Yang Mi Studio, which is why having Deng Lun in the mix comes as a very pleasant surprise. He was memorable in his incredibly short stint in Princess Agents, and it looks like we’re about to see more.
I never actually pictured these two together before, but it’s such a cute pairing that I’m already onboard. They’re both born in 1992 though I have no idea why I added that detail, instant chemistry, perhaps? Ha.. I’m also too excited for the cast to care about the plot, but it must be something about daring to dream which then ends happily ever after, is what I’m guessing. Filming is expected to begin in October.
