Back in March, Crystal Zhang Tianai and Peter Sheng Yilun updated their personal weibo accounts on the exact same day with a picture of themselves against a ferris wheel backdrop. Like some others, I immediately thought, is this a dating announcement? As it turns out, it’s not, but we’re still met with great news because the two are working together for the second time to headline a new drama.
If I Can, Never Love You 如果可以,绝不爱你 is a workplace drama set in a traditional media company experiencing a decline. She is a woman interested in fashion who meets the unbending chief editor. Peter Sheng has received his fair share of criticism due to his acting skills, but his role in Go Princess Go and especially Zhang Tianai’s hold a special place.
I’m all for this reunion! There’s hasn’t been any activity on the show’s official weibo but also reportedly in the cast are Ekin Cheng (Tokyo Raiders), Lv Jiarong (Siege in Fog) and Guan Xiaotong (Sweet Combat) who makes a guest appearance. It’s quite an odd group to make up the supporting cast.
