  1. only interested in Deng Lun, let's hope it's good, my boy really needs a break out work

    1. He's had a break out work! First, "Fifteen Years of Waiting for Migratory Birds" in 2016 got him lots of attention as a second lead and "Because of Meeting You" last year was a big success and he is working non-stop filming lead roles since. His current drama with Dilireba isn't my style but it's a success on TV and online viewss too.

  2. Can't wait for Yang Zi and Deng Lun's drama, I need some fantasy drama to relieve me from my TMPB thirst. Also looking forward to Yang Yang, haven't seen him on screen for a while now so i miss him so much!

  3. I hope HSALF is as good as the book. I am kind of tired of YangZi doing these silly roles and they all have morphed into the same person for me. So I hope she gave this one something different. Not a fan of Deng Lun in a wig but I really like both main leads so I want this to work.
