After finding successes in the xianxia romance Ashes of Love and modern sports drama Skate into Love, the show creators are returning with Love When the Stars Fall 星落凝成糖. All three stories are unrelated except for a prevailing theme about love.
Love When the Stars Fall is based on a novel by Yi Du Jun Hua 一度君华 (NOT the author from Ashes of Love). Nonetheless, the fact that it’s also a xianxia and has Yui-bun Chu as the director once more is definitely worth anticipating. Chen Xingxu and Li Landi were announced as the leads at the Jiangsu TV industry event held on September 28. That just about puts to rest the talks of Yang Zi and Deng Lun possibly reuniting, but I actually like the cast.
Love When the Stars Fall follows twin princesses. The good princess is meant to become the heavenly consort while the evil princess is meant to become the demon consort. However, this is a story about getting on the wrong carriage and marrying the right guy all while saving the four realms.
It would be good if Chen Xingxu who proved his acting chops through his memorable performance in Goodbye My Princess could have another breakout role and this genre certainly has the potential. I could say the same for the adorable Li Landi. The drama also reunites Chen Xingxu with Chen Muchi. The two starred as the dual leads of the yet-to-air Priest novel adaptation entitled Guardians of the Lands. Meanwhile,Li Landi also reunites with her Go Into Your Heart cast mate He Xuanlin. The booting ceremony was held today.
