Darren Chen is an Ice Hockey Player in Sports Romance Drama My Unicorn Girl with Chen Yao
There's a new drama in town and I can't help but think that it sounds familiar! My Unicorn Girl 穿盔甲的少女 which finished shooting last November has finally introduced Darren Chen and Sebrina Chen Yao as the leads of another drama set in the world of competitive sports.

The first posters reveal Darren Chen in full gear as an ice hockey player and Chen Yao exuding elegance as a figure skater. Yet it doesn't seem like we'll be seeming much of the figure skating, at least not at the beginning. Based on the synopsis, things don't exactly work out for the heroine. Sang Tian makes a promise on her 18th birthday to get into her mother's alma mater so that she can become a figure skater. Not only does she fail to get in but she somehow ends up joining an all-boys hockey team which leaves her no choice but to continue her disguise as a man. Then the rest seems like your usual enemies turned friends turned lovers kind of story when she encounters Wen Bing, a hockey player she's had beef with in the past who ends up becoming her dorm mate.

With Skate into Love still so fresh in everyone's minds, it's easy to make a connection between the two. Both are school romances with an inspirational theme about chasing your dreams. If we're really going into detail, not only are both male leads hockey players, their names Li Yubing and Wen Bing both have the Chinese character bing (ice). Even the heroine's name Sang Tian (sweet) is similar to how Tang Xue's name in Skate into Love sounds like candy (tang). The similarities makes sense due to dramas being made as tribute to the 2022 Winter Olympics that will be held in Beijing.

I'm not sure that I can really see Darren Chen as a hockey player since he's quite slender. Then again, I could say the same for Chen Yao who will not only have to pass as a boy (which she's done many times before), but have to be a hockey player too. Eh, as long as it's sweet, count me in!
