After 130 days of filming that took them all the way from China to Italy, My True Friend 我的真朋友 finally wrapped this month. I can’t say that a drama about people selling houses interests me at all, but the cast definitely does. It’s as if the stars have magically aligned this summer to give the casting crew a pat in the back for making the right decision. Zhu Yilong recently got his big break with Guardian and Deng Lun has also cemented his leading man status with Ashes of Love.
Prior to that, I thought that Angelababy will be the biggest ratings draw here because like it or not, her last drama General and I was indeed a hit. In hindsight, she may be the weakest link at least in the acting department. The visuals are high in this one though.
