There is an ongoing talk that Johnny Huang and Shen Yue may be playing a couple soon as some internal documents for a potential new drama are going around online. There’s no official announcement yet but we can assume that both leads are in consideration for the roles. If it pushes through, the drama will be a remake of a South Korean drama, Cleaning with Passion for Now. The tentative title for the Chinese version is Cleaning Elfs 热情的清扫吧.
In the South Korean and Chinese version, it seems the story is the same. It’s about a guy who’s a germophobe and yet, ironically, owns a cleaning company. He meets this girl who is bright and perky and does not mind getting dirty. The guy learns to face his fear of germs with the girl’s help and of course, they fall in love.
The story seems interesting and I would definitely watch this. I hope they get the rights from the copyright owners so it won’t have the usual issues of infringements. The Korean version which has yet to air stars Kim Yoo Jung and Yoon Kyun Sang. It is based on the popular webtoon by Aengo which was first published in 2015.
I can imagine Shen Yue playing this part perfectly because it is already her personality. I am not sure if Johnny Huang‘s the perfect candidate for the male lead but I can see him in the role.
