Cry Me A Sad River has released first stills of the OTP, played by Ma Tianyu (The Founding of an Army) and Zheng Shuang (Rush to the Dead Summer).
Cry Me A Sad River 悲伤逆流成河 reunites Zheng Shuang with the producers and writers of Rush to the Dead Summer, and her Beauty Private Kitchen costar Ma Tianyu.
Eddie Peng (Our Time Will Come) stars as the classic character in the upcoming Wukong 悟空传, a film based off Jin Hezai’s (Tribes and Empires, Wings of Wind) novel of the same name. Ni Ni (Suddenly Seventeen) costars as his true love Ah Zi, and Ou Hao (Blood of Youth) plays General Tianpeng.
Rush to the Dead Summer is a coming-of-age drama starring Chen Xuedong (The Great Wall) as a talented artist who is later swamped with accusations of plagiarism, Zheng Shuang (Love O2O) as his love interest and Bai Jingting (recently seen on well-received variety show Who’s the Murderer?) as his best friend who is not in love with his girlfriend.
The 46 episode drama will begin airing tonight.
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.
Luo Jin (The Princess Weiyoung) and Zheng Shuang (Beauty Private Kitchens) will be playing first loves and then husband and wife in Love the Whole World 为了你我愿意热爱整个世界, based on the novel of the same name by Tangjia Sanshao.
The upcoming college romance drama Love O2O 微微一笑很倾城 starring Yang Yang (Whirlwind Girl) and Zheng Shuang (The Three Heroes and Five Gallants) has released an abundance of stills and trailers ahead of its premiere tonight (August 22nd).
