Promo Round-up: Promising you a fleeting and dreamlike life

Will Zhu Yilong continues his bromance journey in this series?

Zhu Yilong and An Yuexi’s new drama, Promising you a fleeting and dreamlike life 许你浮生若梦  , began streaming on Youtube here on the 13th.

The series so far is kind of similar to Zhu Yilong’s Love for Three Lifetimes – basically the female lead and the supporting male lead are totally in love, but Zhu Yilong’s playboy character also likes her and continues to harass her. Except this time he’s not married to the female lead and he is best friends with her lover. I hear that the supporting male lead will turn out to be a horrible person later, so that may redeem Zhu Yilong’s character eventually, but so far I’m not buying it. An Yuexi and Zhu Yilong, along with supporting leads Zhu Jianran and Madina Yalqun are all really cute in this, though.

Soundtrack: Theme by An Yuexi ft Zhu Yilong ; Ask Oneself by 12th ; Together for the fleeting life by Shao Yuan

That sexual tension tho

The most popular drama not on Youtube of late, borderline-supernatural borderline-boy love drama Guardian is finally on Youtube here.  The drama’s cases are a bit too lacking for me, but the leads are very shippable and I’m just happy that it means wide recognition for  Zhu Yilong.

“The first time I saw him, it’s as if I had known him forever.”
