Potentially the weirdest drama I’ve seen in a while, but also one of the cutest.

Let’s Shake It 颤抖吧,阿部! is so strange  that it works.  The female lead is an alien slave trader, the male lead trains people to smash their heads with bricks, the other male lead is a cat half of the time,   and the director interjects the drama with random scenes of little kids poking fun at the plot.

When alien human traders Abu (An Yuexi) and Meow (Wang Yanyang)  crash  on Earth, they  take over the body of the recently murdered Tang Qingye and a cat to survive.   As they try to get rescued from Earth, they slowly uncover the real reason their spaceship was attacked and a plot to harvest humans for world domination. Watch as Abu gains sympathy for those she once thought sub-alien and even falls for her human adopted brother (Zheng Yecheng), who it turns out may be the heir to the throne.
