Meteor Shower is a co-production between Hunan TV, EE Media and Beijing Chunqiu. The drama plans to be aired this summer. It will be directed by Taiwanese director of “The Outsiders” and the script took the team of Wang Hanlin over a year to finish. EE Media CEO Long Danni stated that “Meteor Garden” is a combination of the best production team from both sides of the strait.
The director of the drama, He Hanchen, is that of the popular Taiwanese series “The Outsiders.” He said that when choosing the actors, he was not forced to pick the Super Boys. Instead, he said that he picked them for their smiles among a group of candidates. When asked about the complaints of the drama before it even began, he replied, ” I don’t care. I only care that this drama will make people cry and laugh. If it can do that, it’s a good drama.”
Second-year student of the Beijing Film Academy (Vicki Zhao Wei, Chen Kun, Huang Xiaoming, Crystal Liu, etc) Zheng Shuang is confirmed to be the lead Chu Yuxun. Zheng Shuang is currently the youngest student in her class and was born in April of 1991.
Recognized her? Probably not, but you probably have seen her before, for she was one of the ten “Olympic baobei’s” handpicked by director Zhang Yimou to perform as a part of the Beijing 8-minutes at the Closing Ceremony of 2004 Athens Olympics. Also from the Bejing Film Academy (but she graduated already), Chu Yinan,’ll be playing Yu Xin, the supporting actress.
Can you spot Chu Yinan?
