Ariel Lin Reportedly Cast for Time-travel Romance C-drama Slated for Spring 2018 Filming

Great news for Ariel Lin drama fans, especially those of her period dramas. Word on the 2018 drama circuit is that she’s inked to headline the time-travel period C-drama This Girl Hua Bu Qi (小女花不弃) based on the same name C-novel. Now that Ariel is lined up this will clearly be my next fluffy read, I trust she’s got a keen eye for drama picking and can’t wait for her to don period garb five year since she did King of Lan Ling with Feng Shao Feng. The story is about a pair of modern day marriage swindlers who are escaping from their latest scam and fall off a cliff, time-traveling to the past and splitting up.

She becomes a beggar girl and he the rich, handsome heir to a business empire. They meet up again 13 years later and there is romance, secrets unveiled, and generally all the dramatic excitement as can be conjured up in a typical C-romance novel. The drama is slated for a March 2018 filming kickoff and the male lead is reportedly cast and a big name but not yet revealed. PLEASE LET IT BE HU GE! Ahahaha, I’m sure that’s a pipe dream but a forever Rong Er/Jing Gege shipper can hope. Ariel is beautiful as always lately, with her most recent media appearance at a Christmas event in Taipei last week. Continue reading
