Newsflash – Rainie Yang and Joseph Chang’s Drunken to Love You episode 1 premiered at a 2.98 ratings (comparatively, Sunny Happiness has been the ratings champion for 8 weeks straight averaging only about 1.60 in ratings). I think we have a new crack TW-mania drama, folks – but can it break Fated to Love You‘s 10.91 all-time ratings high?
With that said, this little drama I’m about to discuss might want to postpone its airdate – the finally-completed-its-filming Material Queen with Vanness Wu and Lynn Xiong released its teaser trailer and announced that it will be airing on June 17, 2011. The trailer is very cute and shiny, but I have high doubts whether this drama as a whole will be good. Lynn and Vanness acting is sorta like the blind leading the blind. But, the trailer is really wonderfully charming, so have a watch.
Trailer for Material Queen:
Lynn plays a supermodel whose motto in life is the acquisition of material goods and comforts. She meets a concert violinist heir to a prominent family, played by Vanness, and proceeds to woo and seduce him. Contrary to her mistaken assumption, Vanness is not said heir, and is actually a poor and hard scrabble young man. The trailer is like a let’s-go-visit-Paris postcard, showing me sights I long to go back and visit, and making it seem as romantic as the City of Lights is known for. Since this drama reunites the awesome PD with the pretty good scriptwriter duo from Autumn’s Concerto, I remain optimistic that its worth a watch.
