Daylight Entertainment has the best trailers. They can build up suspense even where the actual series fails. Their latest work is detective series When a Snail Falls in Love 如果蜗牛有爱情 starring Wang Kai and Wang Ziwen in their third drama together. The trailer looks great as usual, with movie-leveled cinematography, actually decent action sequences, and some moments of cuteness injected in the midst of suspense.
The series is based on the book of the same name by author Ding Mo and directed by Zhang Kaizhou (two of the three people behind the spectacular fail of Love Me If You Dare). Luckily, the scriptwriter is not Hai Yan, who can’t write for the screen to save her life. If anything, it’s only 15 episodes, which hopefully means it’s faster-paced.
I love how Zhang Kaizhou actually plays with the shots. And now that he has a drone camera, there are even more exciting shots like the last scene. Unfortunately he still has a lot to prove after Love Me if You Dare , so we’ll see. Meanwhile, I’m still waiting for the entire script department of Daylight Entertainment to step up their game and stop writing 30-minute scenes of awkward dinner dates.
