Li Yi Feng is one of my biggest C-drama biases and I’ve actually been keeping track of his career and dramas since he won my heart forever more in Sunny Happiness. He’s absolutely adorable and a really promising young actor. He just turned 26 years old this week and I actually did an about take realizing how much he’s matured since he broke into the industry as a week teenager. Last year he was in Love Actually with Joe Cheng and Lee Da Hae, and I was really looking forward to such a high-profile project for him. The official stills were adorable, the previews were cute, and the music was totally addicting. I was all geared up for another crack drama with my boy until I watched episode 1 and felt like someone going to a party all dolled up and falling face first into a puddle of mud. The over-acting and over-directing was ridiculous all-around, and by episode three I felt my brain dying and I had to stop. To this day I wish someone made a Li Yi Feng cut of that drama so I can watch it. He’s got a couple of dramas in the bank that I’m waiting to be released – the high profile drama adaptation of the modern C-novel Tiny Time with Ivy Chen and Peter Ho and a cute bickering period drama with Ying Er. Since SH ended, I actually haven’t liked a single project from any of the three leads – Mike He has been in successive sucky dramas Love Keeps Going and Spring Love, while Janine Chang has done well acting wise such as in Ring Ring Bell or Fairytale but those dramas were simply terrible. I’m hoping there hasn’t been the “curse of SH” or something like that, where the one drama I loved from beginning to end isn’t some sort of anomaly for the actors involved. I’ll stop over-thinking things and just appreciate this great new photo spread featuring my Feng Feng in a retro setting with outdated appliances, dusty books, and one very old bicycle. He actually has this old school feel as an actor-singer, a quiet confidence that feels bright and airy.
