I love that my readers (i.e. fellow drama kindred spirits) have such diverse tastes. Whenever I post about a drama, I always find someone revealing a hidden bias or sharing a fangirly side when it comes to certain actors or actresses that isn’t my personal fave and opening my eyes up. When I posted a few months ago about the upcoming C-drama called Drama Go Go Go starring Ruby Lin, Jiro Wang, and Lin Geng Xin, I heard from everyone exclaiming about how cute the previews and stills looked. I completely agree. Despite never (ever) liking Ruby Lin, I really really liked what I saw of her in the preview. I even had a chat with my sister (the real one, not all my imaginary sisters) who feels the same way about Ruby (her Princess Returning Pearl made us both roll our eyes and it was downhill ever since), and we both exclaimed “she’s really charming here!?!?” See! I can change my mind and not be afraid of admitting it. I still can’t predict whether the drama as a whole will be any good, but now I totally want to watch it.
I’m indifferent to Jiro 2.0 (I loved original flavor awkward looking Jiro from It Started with a Kiss days but the newly surgeonized version of him just looks so plastic and I’m sad about that), but I sense some stellar chemistry between him and Ruby. The story revolves around a frumpy screenwriter played by Ruby who is a fangirl of Jiro’s character, one-half of an over-the-hill idol duo. She gets him cast as the lead of her drama but his terrible acting almost gets him fired. To keep his job, he tries to seduce her and they end up really falling in love. Lin Geng Xin plays the son of Ruby’s writing mentor and he grew up with her always around. Finally, Hu Bing plays a man who greatly admires Ruby and swoops in after her relationship with Jiro starts to crack. The drama will be airing weekends on Hunan TV starting November 3rd, following the conclusion of Nicky Wu‘s remake of Bride with White Hair (which is so godawful I simply have no words other than “my eyes, my eyes, oh the horror!”). As for DGGG, it looks awesome so check out the English-subbed long trailer below.
