The Brightest Star in the Sky 夜空中最亮的星 has dropped the darkest set of character posters. I couldn’t resist the urge to brighten it up a bit, even then, it’s hard to see. For a drama about aspiring celebrities, I suppose it signifies the dark times before the stars become stars. Filming is nearly complete in China and the cast and crew are readying for the next leg of filming to take place in Mexico, USA, etc.
Huang Zitao plays Zheng Bo Xu, a young idol with a lot of fame and a big ego. He is arrogant and not easily tamed. He has a passion for music and a relentless persistence. Despite the pressure that he faces at work, he acts like it’s nothing and refuses to show that he’s having a hard time.
Janice Wu as Yang Zhen Zhen, a young lady who has come to the city. Armed with her love for music, she forays into the workforce but faces trials at every turn. Even though she doesn’t have the godsend talent to fulfill her dreams, she paves her own way and uses her own methods to turn her dream into a reality.
Niu Jun Feng as Yu Zi Rui, a star who achieved what he has through hard work and persistence. He treads very carefully, and moves towards his goals according to his own will. He thinks, “In the road to achieving dreams, how many people are able to stay true to themselves, and how many lose the thing they treasured the most, not everyone’s youth can have no regrets.”
Cao Xi Yue as Xia Yuan, Yang Zheng Zhen’s close friend. She is someone who dares to love and dares to hate. She thinks, “Not all perseverance can be seen as tenacity”.
