If you’ve already binged on A Love So Beautiful, squealed over Put Your Head on My Shoulder, but are still craving for more, sink your teeth into a new offering from Zhao Qianqian, the creator and master “chef” who put together two of your favourite dramas. Yep! You heard it right. Whet your appetite with the aptly titled The Sweet Love Story 致我们甜甜的小美满 to be produced by Tencent.
The Sweet Love Story is a modern romantic story adapted from yet another Zhao Qianqian novel 舟而复始. It follows the burgeoning romance between a cold and aloof medical student and a cute Department of Literature student. Like any relationship, the pair go through ups and downs to reach happiness together.
For a taste of what’s to come, the drama has already announced its cast line up and in true Zhao Qianqian fashion, will be featuring pretty much rookie actors for the show. Some of the names might be familiar to c-drama fans like Simon Gong Jun who played the 11th prince Yuan Che in Lost Love in Times and Liu Renyu of Produce 101 fame; others like Li Geyang, Wanyan Luorong, An Yongchang, and Gao Qiuzi are unfamiliar to me but I’m quite looking forward to the vibes they’ll be bringing to the new drama.
From the cheery photos, what are the odds that it’s another youth romance?
Raise your hand if you’re excited!
