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)

Dilraba cast as a timid woman with obsessive crush on the male lead until she develops confidence to go after dreams? There are differences but her character sounds quite similar to Pretty Li Huizhen. I just hope her character isn't too pathetic. I like DD and Deng Lun so I hope this is good.
I wonder why they chose these released stills with the two of them in those unatractive coats? I wonder why they chose those coats at all.
For one thing, Qiqi is not timid at all!! Haha…She's quite a brazen lass and very vocal in telling the world and of course the male lead of her crush for him, in reality and also in their dreams. It's like she initiated everything including some kisses. That's why I like her character here. She's an epitome of fan-girling – and Dilraba nails the character so perfectly. You cannot stop fan-girling with her during her crush on Bo Hai and even after he eventually show some interest and fell for her. I like that their dreams plot/stories at night follow what is going on during the day – starting with her being his 'damsell in shining-armour' rescuing him from fire-spitting dragon when he's having hard times in the office to kung-fu fighting each other when they clashed and fought as she learnt of his cold character when she entered the company and became a couple in a fantasy land when they progressed to more intimate relationship.
