The Romance of Hua Rong 一夜新娘 may have started out as a drama without much hype and a rather unfamiliar cast, but it’s certainly caught my attention (even without the subs!), and it’s all thanks to its charmer lead Yuan Hao (Love and Destiny) who plays the cold, egotistic and savage pirate with a veryyy alluring gaze. The kind that makes you fall head-over-heels with just one look. (Trust me, I squealed.)
The Romance of Hua Rong is about a spunky and reckless daughter of a general named Hua Rong (played by rookie actress Zhao Zhaoyi) who goes on an adventure in the pugilistic world. She gets entangled between two men, a pirate named Qin Shangcheng and a young prince named Jin Yiwen.
While escaping from her captors, the ship that she is on gets ambushed by pirates. Her cover is blown and she finds herself forced into a marriage! The drama is hilarious, to say the least, but the biggest takeaway is how well the male lead grows on you. Young actor Yuan Hao is a name that’s unfamiliar to many and viewers did not immediately warm up to his looks with many comments that he looked tacky in his costumes.
Yuan Hao had only starred in supporting roles before but congrats to him since it looks like he has hit the jackpot with his first leading role as people are becoming more aware of his presence. It’s too early to claim this to be his breakout role, but I’m hoping he’ll receive more opportunities and recognition if the drama continues to do well.
Is it just me or does he resemble Deng Lun a lot?
??? Go get eye check up. The nerve to think a peasant resembles the male god Deng Lun.. Deng Lun doesn't deserve this slander.
Netizens are right he does look tacky and the type that will never get popular.
agree with your comments! when i first watched this drama, the storyline and mischievous antics of the female lead was what kept the drama interesting, then the lead actor grew on me as the episodes, especially with his cheeky smiles, bravery and outright smarts!
oh! i think the lead actors looks like zhang yu jian instead of deng lun
He doesn't look like Deng Lun at all, though? But since this drama comes from the makers of Well-Intended Love, I'm sure it's going to be a light, yet addictive series.
He doesn't look like Deng Lun. I thought he looks a bit like Zhang Ruo Yun.
Wow! Thanks for making the male god Deng Lun fans look like total jerks with this comment. 😀
You may disagree with the writer of this article but you don’t have to be so mean and nasty with your comment
Your reaction and your manner of expression are overly excessive and aggressive
Learn to be polite and civilised; it’s the least you can do
I actually do know of him cuz when i search for Denglun i see some articles about his resemblance to Deng lun. He kinda does alittle. Also look like some Korean actor too.
Don't agree he looks like Deng Lun. But Deng Lun isn't more handsome than him and he is also not more handsome than Deng Lun LOL so I guess they are kind of similar to me as well.
I couldn't watch this drama because I couldn't get past the ANNOYING MTF actress. She looks pretty and natural, but her acting is terrible. She looked like she could've had potential, such a waste of beauty. Her character is so damn annoying that if I were the guy, I would probably be really mean to her. It makes no sense why he likes such a girl, she throws tantrum worst than a kid. Just bc she's the only pretty girl alive or what? His acting is only mediocre from the few scenes I saw.
He is fine actor… & if he is a good actor why to consider his look as the most important thing..? He is not an idol!!… But even a blind can sense his screen presence & charm… I hope he get casted in more drama so he can shine even more brightly!!
I like Deng Lun, but if other fans like this, i think i need to re-think again.
I'm glad to see Yuan Hao get a leading role. I first saw him as a second lead in I Hear You and I liked his performance in that drama. I'll agree that he does have a nice screen presence and I will definitely check out this new drama- it sounds cute.
I don't see the similarity with Deng Lun, they're both handsome in vastly different ways. I think Yuan Hao is doing an excellent job as the lead and I actually really like the costumes. People thinking they can do a costume budget like some of the big Chinese dramas.
I don't see Denglun..however, he is verry charming and he can act. He is surpassing the female lead in terms if acting.
Yes, he has the korean actor looks lol
He really looks like Jimin is some angles
I think i fall in love with him ( yuan hao ) he is very handsome n i like her smile
I don't see the resemblance to Deng Lun at all. I do think though, that Yuan Hao is the most gorgeous actor I've seen in ages. I was captivated with how incredibly handsome and crazy sexy he was from the first ep of Hua Rong. I did like him a lot in Love & Destiny, but his role was small and he didn't get a lot of screen time.I do remember thinking he was WAAAAY better looking than Chang Chen.
He's more like so ji sub, especially the way he stares at the girl.. so intense yet so soft ?
Yes!!! Totally agreed. He reminds me so much of SJS and he got the most adorable smiles. Looking forward to see him in more lead roles.
Hi Lilibaiyu, Fancy meeting you here. We met as Chunsas of Park Yu Chun, 10 years ago. Then you introduced me to Song il Gook as Jumong!
Now, we are both smitten with Yuan Hao who I am watching for the 1st time. He has that lazy, sexy gaze that I find most captivating. He doesn’t look like Deng Lun. But his eyes remind me of G Dragon. I have to look for Yuan Hao’s other dramas.
I’m not into C dramas and not really know about C actors, but this pirate really something. His acting is better that the female lead imo. He’s got a gorgeous smile and dimple. He looks like So Ji Sub and Kim Min Jae 🙂
Now I’m waiting for Hua Rong season 2 just for this pirate.
Yuan Hao will is a great actor. I can’t watch the other listed dramas…Yuan Hao is an original. He will surpass the others. He’s not only good looking but very talented. This is one of my best cdramas.
I think Yuan Hao is excellent as Qin Shang Cheng and have enjoyed watching the series. He is very attractive and charming. I think the costumes are fine. I will definitely be a watching the 2nd series. . . Looking forward to it.
