Sweet Dreams 一千零一夜 is a 45-episode Chinese romance drama with science fiction elements. Due to an incident, the female protagonist gains the ability to enter one man’s dreams to do the things that she never dared to do. He is someone that she happens to have a huge crush on, thus beginning their fairytale romance. The cast is led by Dilraba Dilmurat, Deng Lun, Bambi Zhu Xu Dan, Chen Yi Long, Wang Rui Zi and Zhang Hao Wei.
Both Dilraba Dilmurat and Deng Lun started the year headlining dramas of their own with Pretty Li Hui Zhen and Because of Meeting You respectively and they seem to have completely made the transition to leading lady and leading man status. It’s hardly surprising that most of the promos have been focused on them as they’re quite adept at playing up the sweetness. I’m still a little hazy on the plot but who needs that.
Release Date: June 25, 2018 Hunan TV, Youku, Tencent (two episodes daily at 8pm)
