Chris Wu and Kimi Hsia Headline CTS Drama Rock n’ Road Premiering this Sunday

The Sunday Taiwan drama dead air slump has been going on for almost a year now, with the last drama in the timeslot that I loved and watched the whole way through being King Flower (Substitute Princess) almost a year ago. Since then it hasn’t just been SETTV, none of the offerings in any of the networks in that timeslot have been worth an hour of my time, much less a twenty hour commitment. This Sunday I’ll be lured back to check out a new drama airing on CTS and produced by the network and cable channel TBVS called Rock n’ Road (the Chinese title is A咖的路 which manes The Road to Becoming an A-lister). The reason I’m even remotely interested? Two words, one name: Chris Wu. Thank you and that is all cuz my baby is back! And this time he’s the male lead of this drama as opposed to doing what he does in his sleep, which is play second male leads that steal the show. Starring Chris, Kimi Hsia, Mike Lee, and Nita Lei, the drama is set in the music industry and Chris plays an A-list music producer who crosses paths with Kimi’s former child star who is seeking to reinvent herself as an adult rock star, except she can’t sing and has limited talent. It’s billed as a music and dreams story interspersed with comedy and romance with lots of famous Taiwanese music and acting stars making cameos in the drama as it tries to capture the long hard journey to become an A-lister. I love the rocker look Chris sports for this role which is such a turnaround from his Terry in King Flower, which then makes me sad his leading lady here isn’t Nikki Hsieh since she’s a punk rocker fashionista in real life plus they have so much chemistry onscreen. Kimi is a great comedic actress but I haven’t quite connected with her previous performances yet but I’ll keep an open mind for this coupling and my fingers crossed that the story is good in Rock n’ Road. Check out a boatload of Chris drama stills below, character previews, as well as the addicting opening and ending theme songs. The drama premieres this Sunday on CTS taking over the time slot vacated by Kiss Me Mom! Continue reading
