The upcoming romance drama, Something Just Like This 青春创世纪, formerly We Are Young, has wrapped its 106-days of filming as of August 11 and with it comes a fresh pairing between Johnny Huang Jingyu and Wu Jinyan who are working together for the first time.
Johnny Huang Jingyu oozes with charisma as the wealthy Duan Ran who finds potential in e-commerce livestreaming platforms and acquires a company. I dunno with you guys, but I personally find the actor very suitable as a CEO because he gives that egotistic, i-get-what-i-want kind of vibe.
Acting alongside him is Wu Jinyan as Qian Xixi who is his opposite in terms of family background, yet she grew up living with Duan Ran and his fuerdai family. Hmm, her semi-untucked outfit is giving me an impression that we can expect quite a bit of spunk from her. (fingers crossed!) She ends up in the e-commerce industry by chance with Duan Ran as her boss!
But! That’s not all that the new series has to offer as it brings together some unexpected connections from the supporting cast which include Xuan Lu, Xu Li, Cao Yuchen, Liang Dawei and Wang Maolei.
Fans of The Untamed can at least get some closure at seeing Xuan Lu who has officially become everyone’s favorite shijie (senior sister) and her onscreen partner Cao Yuchen in a drama together. However, let’s not get our hopes up since there may or may not be any romance between the two. Cao Yuchen plays the heroine’s high school classmate whose arrival is crucial to helping her company.
Another reunion comes in the form of Wu Jingyan and Wang Maolei who were former friends turned enemies in Story of Yanxi Palace. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of relationship they will have here.
I'm excited – I'm super excited for this drama!!! Can't wait to see Johnny as the over-bearing president, although he's not overbearing at all! He is the prototype for tall, dark and handsome though. Also hope this drama shows off his comedic skills too! Yeah, broadcast soon, please!
I have to chuckle with the mention of Wang Maolei, and suddenly I gotta find out what's gonna happen with WJY and him here.
Mr. Wang now has hair, and it got my imagination going over what his personality will be like in the drama.
As for WJY, I'm curious about her role but have to say that this Xuan Lu looks almost identical to her, with hair and face the way the posters go. It might be a better idea to change the character designs slightly so the female lead can stand more distinctly.
So, that's see how this one goes.
