The already wrapped modern C-drama SOP Queen finally released trailers this week, but there hasn’t been confirmation of when it’s airing. Starring Hans Zhang, Chen Qiao En, and Godfrey Tsao, the drama definitely went all out on location shoots in London for a month before wrapping up in Shanghai and Taipei. The title is about being a “leftover girl” which is current C-slang for on-the-shelf, but Chen Qiao En hardly fits that profile in real life and her character looks quite pretty, outgoing, and successful. She and Hans strike up an You’ve Got Mail type online friendship and he develops a crush on her, which of course will take meandering through second leads and random plot obstacles before they can get together. While the story sounds typical, I liked the previews and any excuse to watch Hans in a non-retch inducing drama is always a win for me.
