Filming has started on the C-movie adaptation of popular college age romance novel One Smile is Very Alluring (Wei Wei Yi Xiao Hen Qing Cheng). This is poised to be this year’s potential big like like You Are My Sunshine, and even earlier Shan Shan Come Eat. All three novels are by writer Gu Man, so linking them together makes sense since its the same fan base and the same general style. While Shan Shan Come Eat only had a C-version starring Zhao Li Ying and Hans Zhang, You are My Sunshine got a drama with Wallace Chung and Tang Yan followed by a movie with Yang Mi and Huang Xiaoming. The former was watchable and addicting while the latter was a waste of time. One Smile is Very Alluring is also getting the same drama-movie double treatment, the drama is already done filming starring leads Yang Yang and Zheng Shuang, while the movie just started rolling this week with Jin Bo Ran and Angelababy. I’m hard pressed to say which set of leads I like better, but I tend to think novel adaptations work better as a long form drama.
