When it was first announced that Jerry Yan and Shen Yue will pair up for a new drama, it drew extreme reactions online due to the 20 year age gap between the two. Harsh criticisms were thrown saying that the 42-year-old Jerry Yan was old enough to be Shen Yue’s uncle, but there were also supporters who say that the gap isn’t that noticeable.
Count Your Lucky Stars 交换吧运气, which was previously known as The Exchange Luck, is about a guy that’s unbelievably lucky and a woman who is a magnet for bad luck. Talk about polar opposites, huh? Their lucks accidentally switch and their lives in the designing world take a different turn.
With so much talk about this new pairing even before filming began and Jerry Yan absent from the boot ceremony, I’m sure many of us are curious to see how our main couple will hold up as a pair. Speaking of Jerry, I admittedly did not see anything wrong with the tandem at first but now, seeing him sporting a goatee — I’m not so sure anymore. His matured face makes the age difference glaring!
With Shen Yue, it seems that they’re trying to age her up in the retro specs and vintage checkered dress (I do love her dress, though).
Miles Wei Zheming rounds up the trio as Jerry Yan’s rival. He is the adopted son who is forever in another’s shadow. The drama also stars Song Lulu, Stephanie Shen Yao, Wang Sen, Li Yuyang, Josephine Yu Silu and Bao Yaming.
This age gap and casting is really unbelievable. I wonder what made the casting team think it is suitable and good…..
did they change the title ?
Hi, yes they did. It was originally Exchange Luck but now it's Count Your Lucky Stars.
My favorite actor jerry yan.
If we really want to see Asian Movie to have a great leap and step forward more in the array of world class cinema, we should be adjusted with so many possible character challenges. Dont just play fairly. Play greatly.. and I support Jerry Yan and Shen Yue to be paired up in this movie. What I really eager to see is that whether they can combat the big gap between them not just in the aspect of age but also other aspects such as body attractiveness/matches, popularity, their emotions accordingly with their age, the ability to develop a cohesive chemistry as well the negativity or their fans towards this pairing, possibility of lack of supporting story scene or plot to build a cohesive chemistry.. and etc.. Hopefully they can beat all the obstacles and show their greatest ability as actors.. Jiayo JY and SY!!
I am glad to see them paired up ( jerry yan and shen yue) in a movie and hope their chemistry will turn out pretty good,
Let's be fair to this newly couple tandem. I think they will be a great break for them. I both adore the two main character specially jerry yan. Hope their chemistry will turn to be a success.
did you see the behind the scene of this series?if not try to search some and look for jerry yan's pictures.he doesn't look old while they are filming.he look so young and handsome specially with those stolen shots?.
Jerry yan my God! I don't care about age bcoz I know he is really good.. I'm sure they will good pair and become perfect couple??
I think they look fine together. Yes, he looks a little more mature than her, but it doesn't look extreme. I don't recall reading what their age gape is supposed to be in the drama, but perhaps this is intentional? Looking forward to seeing how this drama will turn out.
The premise seems to be based on the English movie "Just my luck" with Chris Pine and Lindsay Lohan. Anyway, I like both of them and will give a try.
After having watched their drama ‘Count Your Lucky Stars’ from episode one till twenty six, I am literally drown in their chemistry in the drama.
Many have criticised their age difference. Please check out So Ji Sub and wife.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, Hugh Jackman and wife. They all have huge age difference but great relationship.
As long as you are above 18, you are an adult.
Besides, this is drama, actors and actresses are supposed to act according to the age of the characters they portrayed. Hence, both of them fitted their roles well. One looked younger than his age as a chief editor and the other looked more mature for her age as an assistant who has worked for a number of years.
Both have great chemistry in the drama. Plot is great. Acting is great for everyone. It is quite a good drama.
Besides, it is a breakthrough for Shen Yue to act in a more matured role against a matured actor rather than always acting as a young adult who barely reached puberty against young actors.
This drama further showed her polished acting skills. Many undercurrent acting with just a look and a twitch without having to say much.
So, do watch Count Your Lucky Stars. Shouldn’t be missed. Really entertaining.
I really enjoyed this movie the actors had great chemistry would love to see them act together again!! I love asian movies more that some american movies!!!!
