If you’re one of those still hoping for a reunion between Dilraba Dilmurat and Vin Zhang Binbin so that they can have at least one project that ends happily-ever-after, I’m afraid you’ve no such luck this time as although the two actors will be returning with new projects, it won’t be with each other. Instead, we’ve got two new dramas offering interesting new pair ups that have started filming in September.
Storm Eye 暴风眼 actor Vin Zhang has started working with a new leading lady in his newest fantasy drama Rattan (Si Teng) 司藤. The titular role of Si Teng is played by actress Jing Tian who some of you might recall from roles in movies like Pacific Rim: Uprising and Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall. Vin Zhang will be starring as a young designer named Qin Fang who accidentally stumbles upon Si Teng and rouses her from her ten year slumber!
The two will be joined by a cast that includes Zhang Yichi, Jin Zehao, Pan Yiyi, Zhang Dinghan, Benson Wang Guan and Yu Yuan who gathered for the filming ceremony held on September 25, 2019.
Meanwhile, actress Dilraba Dilmurat is finally making her drama comeback after a year and a half’s absence from the small screens. According to the rumour mill, Dilraba was set to appear in the workplace romance drama Love Advanced Customization 爱情高级定制 opposite Johnny Huang Jingyu who attended the kick-off ceremony. Although neither’s casting has been officially announced, Dilraba was later on spotted on set! It’s great to hear that Dilraba’s drama career is starting to pick up once more since she previously revealed her difficulties getting her hands on good scripts despite her popularity.
What do you guys think of this latest romantic pairing? The drama calls for strong personalities from its leads who start off on the wrong foot and clash from the very beginning. Johnny Huang Jingyu has often enough played tough guy roles in his past works like mega hit The Thunder and Operation Red Sea so it’ll probably be a walk in the park for him to play a stubborn businessman. Dilraba on the other hand has strong facial features which can work to her advantage in playing a driven and ambitious fashion designer.
