Picture this, this generation’s Shan Cai paired with the first generation Dao Ming Si because it’s happening!
Jerry Yan and Shen Yue are the leads of The Exchange Luck 交换吧运气, an upcoming drama based on a web novel of the same name by Mo Xi. Jerry Yan, who I still can’t believe is looking oh-so fine at the age of 42, will be playing an editor named Lu Xingcheng who is famous for his good luck. He crosses path with Shen Yue’s character named Tong Xiaoyou who is an aspiring designer that can’t seem to catch a break due to her bad luck. With their chance encounter, their luck interchanges.
I guess one of the reasons why I’m very much excited for this drama is because I’m a huge fan of the Taiwanese Meteor Garden from the early 2000s, so even if this couple pairing completely switches up things, after all, fans are so used to the idea of Shen Yue with Dylan Wang and Jerry Yan with Barbie Hsu, but it’s quite thrilling for me. I remember seeing Jerry Yan and Shen Yue in a show where they reenacted the iconic break up scene between Shan Cai and Dao Ming Si and they were just so good! They had me crying again even though I’ve watched that scene a number of times already.
Hmm, now that I’m reminded of that, I can say that while there may be concerns about the 20 year age gap, looking at them as a pair, it isn’t that much noticeable. Shen Yue was present at the filming ceremony held today though Jerry Yan did not attend. The cast also includes Jackie Li, Miles Wei Zheming, Stephanie Shen Yao, Wang Sen and Li Yuyang.
