Watching Asian dramas for over three decades not only has seem my tastes age as I have but it’s also followed plenty of stars from their own leading man/woman days to their playing dad/mom days. Most recently I did “what tha what?!?” when I saw Han Chae Ah playing Yook Sung Jae‘s MOM in Gold Spoon. I should have seen it coming when she cameo’d as the mommy queen in The King’s Affection but goodness it’s like she went from leading lady to taking a marriage break to coming back as…..mom. Nothing wrong with that, but another mommy turn I did a double take on is C-actress Zeng Li playing Zhao Lu Si‘s general mommy in Love Like the Galaxy. Sure she’s in her 40s but Zeng Li is legit a top C-actress female lead widely considered one of the three most beautiful Central Academy of Drama graduates OF ALL TIME. But I guess in her twenty-something years of acting there comes a time to graduate to mommy roles and at least in LLTG her daughter was only 15 years old in the drama so she was a young mommy heh. The mom-daughter duo reunited last week at an event and also to celebrate Zhao Lu Si’s 24th birthday in real life on November 9th. Congrats to another year with successful projects that belie all her hard work in doing drama after drama. Love these pictures and Zeng Li shared them on her SNS so clearly the two are quite chummy after doing the drama together.
