The Korean trickle towards Chinese dramas has become a flood at this point. If your favorite K-actor or actress disappears from the K-ent news cycle for some time, chances are that he or she is making a C- or TW-drama. No joke, I can count over a dozen dramas being made or airing right now with K-stars in the lead. Kwon Sang Woo has actually been in China for quite some time, having been filming two C-movies over there recently. He’s doing a rom-com movie with Cecelia Cheung called Repeat, I love You (Shadow Lover in Chinese), and also a Jackie Chan fantasy period movie Chinese Zodiac. Now add to that a new C-drama he’s filming called Feng Hua Xue Yue (Wind Flower Snow Moon), Kwon Sang Woo might as well buy a house over in China.
For FHXY, his leading lady will be Wang Ya Jie, who at 33 years old is the perfect age to be Kwon Sang Woo’s leading lady. I didn’t watch Daemul with Go Hyun Jung, but I’m still traumatized seeing Kwon Sang Woo with Yoona in Cinderella Man. Some pairings ought never to happen. Ever. FHXY will be filmed in Yunnan Province (ooooh, super pretty) and is about an Asian-American Broadway producer who comes back to China to stage a musical production in Yunnan and falls in love with the leading lady of his stage musical. Sounds curiously interesting.
