Mr. Swimmer 游泳先生 is a 46-episode contemporary drama about an up-and-coming Olympic swimmer who falls in love with an ordinary girl. From what I can see, ordinary girl is extraordinarily gorgeous. It stars Mike D’Angelo (Delicious Destiny), Ju Jingyi (Legend fo Yun Xi), Jerry Yan Yuhao (The Story of Souls from Endless Books), Zhang Sha Sha (Special Duty Elite), Hu Bing (New Horizon) and Huang Xin Yao (Smile).
Bai Yongze (Mike D’Angelo) is a talented swimmer who grew up in an ordinary family while Song Cha Cha came from a rich family that has become poor after taking a financial hit. Her boyfriend, Lan Tian (Jerry Yan), had no choice but to break up with her due to his own reasons. He also happens to be a good friend of Bai Yongze but eventually, the two become rivals who will compete for the spot to become part of the Chinese national team. The three characters encounter many twist and turns that will help them mature into responsible young people.
Mike D’Angelo is a Thai actor and singer, and he has been in almost ten Chinese dramas so far, his last one being Delicious Destiny. Most if not all his Chinese dramas are dubbed so I guess this one won’t be any different. Personally, I’m curious about his proficiency as it must be on the rise after so many dramas.
It’s impressive that he managed to make a niche out of being a romantic lead when there are so many Chinese actors to compete with. This looks like a cute drama to watch.
