If you guys are enjoying The Brightest Star in the Sky, there’s another drama about also about a star and his female assistant that was also filmed in 2017 except instead of post-90’s actors, it is headlined by post-80’s stars Jia Nailiang (Pushing Hands) and Ivy Chen (Love Is In The Air).
Road to Rebirth 爱在星空下, formerly Romance With The Star, is a 46-episode modern day love story that centers around Sun Xiaoai (Ivy Chen), a small town girl who becomes a personal nanny to a super popular idol named Su Xing (Jia Nailiang). Sun Xiaoai learns that there is more to Su Xing than just being an idol. He cares for out of school children & visits sick fans.
After an incident, Su Xing risks his career to save his sister’s reputation. He ends up losing his celebrity status and has to work back up from nothing all over again. This time though, he has Sun Xiaoai as his manager and the two of them try to climb back to the top of the entertainment industry. Will their relationship develop into something more or will Su Xing’s past come back to haunt them?
In a way, these kind of stories feel like a meta to the industry. Jia Nailiang is an actor playing a big star, and he’d have some material to work with through first hand experience as a celebrity. Chen Xiaoyun (Youth Fight), Ran Xu (Dagger Mastery), Liang Xiaorun, Fu Meng-po (Love’s Lies), Wang Jingyan (The Endless Love) and Li Yixiao (The Story of Minglan) also joins the cast.
Release Date: TBD
