In just a hour, her father told her, “don’t come to look for me again.”
Her mother told her, ” After you die, don’t come looking for me.”
Yi Yao patted her stomach and asked, “are you stupid? why did you come looking for me?”

Part 2 of translations of selected parts of Cry Me a Sad River 悲伤逆流成河 by Guo Jingming. Part 1 here.  Both translations were done like five years ago, so don’t judge, but feel free to comment on errors.

Chen Xuedong plays Guo Jingming, falls for Zheng Shuang in Rush to the Dead Summer

Could Guo Jingming finally have a decent TV adaptation of his novels? The trailer so far seems lovely, and casting of Zheng Shuang, Chen Xuedong, Bai Jingting, Xia Ziting and Chai Biyun is perfect.

Rush to the Dead Summer follows the main lead Lu Xiaosi (Chen Xuedong). Xiaosi  is an introverted but talented illustrator who began publishing under a pseudonym in high school. He  finally made it big in college and started his own publishing company, only to be caught in accusations of plagiarism. As if afraid you can’t figure out that this story is about him, Guo Jingming made the main lead’s name (小司) literally being a homophone of his own pseudonym (小四).

This is the second time Chen Xuedong will play Guo Jingming, the last time being when he played Zhou Chongguang, an annoying writer who would never turn in his writings in time, in Tiny Times 1/2/3/4. We get it, guys, you guys are soulmates.

Being a Guo Jingming story, there are also a lot of love triangles. Xiaosi is joined by the extroverted and sunny bff who will literally die for him Lu Zhihang (Bai Jingting), the perfect(ly dull) female lead Lixia (Zheng Shuang) who he dates, the spunky Yujian (Xia Ziting) with dreams of being a rockstar and a love triangle of her own , and the vain Cheng Qiqi (Chai Biyun) who also likes Xiaosi.
