Yang Zi and Li Xian's Opposite Reactions to an Unscripted Kiss in Go Go Squid

As they say, the best comes unexpected and even though there are many sweet moments in Go Go Squid! 亲爱的,热爱的, this might apply to the "unscripted" happenings in the filming of the Chinese romantic-comedy.

The drama stars the adorable Yang Zi and charismatic Li Xian in the leading roles of Tong Nian and Han Shangyan. During the filming for a scene where Han Shangyan walks Tong Nian to the door to see her off, Yang Zi suddenly runs towards her co-star and kisses him, yet the actor's response wasn't so positive because he flinches before the smooch. The scene ends with everyone laughing. Yang Zi begrudgingly chides Li Xian and says that it's too awkward for her. She wanted to kiss him, but he avoided it and it was making her look bad.

But don't worry, it had nothing to do with the actress' lips or whatever. In Li Xian's defence, everyone in the crew and Yang Zi knew about the kiss except for him! He even thought that she was going to hit him, thus the flinching. Watching the video made me burst into giggles.

But to be fair, this isn't the only time that one of the stars didn't know that they would have to lock lips because a similar situation happened before where it was the actress that was clueless. When Li Xian suddenly went in for the kiss, Yang Zi is wide-eyed in surprise since there was no kiss in the script.

It takes her a few seconds to react and she tries to stifle her laughter. I really find her reaction cute. Props to her quick-thinking - this is the reaction they were going for.

Li Xian also tells the director that they should've told him directly because the strategy works on Yang Zi but not on him. Still, the behind the scenes reveal that the two stars had a good laugh about it. Hmm, I'm curious how it'll looks like when it's shown (that's tonight!). Cheers to more impromptu, sweet scenes!

  1. Awww, so cute. I have many good laughs watching this drama. So far so good ♥️♥️♥️

  2. Love this drama
    it gives a lot of charming scenes

    1. Yup! I find myself smiling often while watching it. :D

  3. It can just get corny at times that I flinch. I feel they could have been in a better production story and script wise as the pairing is great. Yang Zi is reduced to play cutesy silly girl when she could do much more. Same with Li Xian. I feel this story while the novel is popular is too light for their calibre.

  4. One of the best c- drama of 2019... can't get enough of yzlx.

  5. i hope there's a season 2 for this i really love watching it 24 hrs straigh🤩❣️
