Looks like I’m starting off 2015 more interested in the upcoming Chinese-language dramas than K-dramas. I’m dying for the TW-drama Someone Like You to start (please be good!) in early January while across the Strait there is upcoming C-drama My Sunshine adapted from the popular online novel Silent Separation (何以笙箫默 He Yi Sheng Xiao Mo). I actually read the original novel after the drama had been cast and started filming, it was one I never got the urge to pick up but heard lots of happy fluffy things about it regarding a very devoted loverboy male lead that devoted fans of the story can’t stop swooning over.
I don’t think I would be as vested in watching this drama if I didn’t plod through the horrific C-drama Best Time, adapted from Tong Hua‘s novel Secrets Hidden in Time. I’m such a fan of the male lead in that story Lu Li Cheng who was played by Wallace in the drama, hence I just need to see Wallace in a modern love story where he gets the happy ending he so deserves. As long as YAMS follows the novel then it’s a love story where the audience gets plenty of delicious angst followed by payoff moments of people making the right decisions when given a second chance at love. Can’t argue with that, especially when so many romance dramas these days keep on failing to deliver the satisfaction.
