Calling all Meteor Garden fans – old and new alike – because Jerry Yan and Shen Yue have officially finished filming their new romantic drama Count Your Lucky Stars 交换吧运气! Jerry Yan actually completed his scenes a week earlier than Shen Yue who worked through the night until around 5am yesterday. The actress joked that only those who were not asleep would even know that she has wrapped.
This will be Jerry Yan’s comeback drama after years of absence from the small screen. I don’t know if he’s just really made for these kind of roles but once again, we see the charismatic actor giving life to an arrogant male lead. His pairing with the much younger Shen Yue caused quite a stir because of their age gap and while I normally don’t have a problem with that, I was quite concerned with this one. Who knows? They both have great visuals so maybe they can pull this off and make an unexpected hit like Gong Yoo and Kim Go-eun in Goblin.
Count Your Lucky Stars follows the two leads who share an accidental kiss that results in their luck getting switched. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the heated arguments and fireworks. Besides, it’s Jerry Yan we’re talking about. The drama is expected to air some time in 2020 on streaming site Youku and I hope we get an air date soon!
The cast also includes La Mu Yang Zi, Miles Wei Zheming, Stephanie Shen Yao, Wang Sen, Li Yuyang, Josephine Yu Silu and Yammi Bao Yaming.
