Drama Adaptation for Just One Smile is Alluring with Yang Yang and Zheng Shuang


Are we in for another crazy shipping? It is very possible! Another novel by the famous Chinese author Gu Man (who is the writer behind Shan Shan Comes to Eat and You Are My Sunshine) will have another of his projects on the small screen. 微微一笑很倾城 or Just One Smile is Alluring is going to be the next big project for this online author. Apparently, this one is one of her most famous work so I am sure the story will be top notch. Even if I am not a fan of Zheng Shuang because I find her acting very lacking, I may still follow this production. ^^ As Zheng Shuang and Yang Yang, the leads for this drama, know each other well from Divas Hit the Road, I think the fanbase for this drama is going to be quiet strong too.

The director of this drama is the famous Lin Yufen who worked with a lot of Tangren period dramas including Chinese Paladin 3, Bubujingxin and Wuxin as well as other big projects such as Hua Qian Gu. Wow, this sounds so awesome *_*

Since I am watching Whirlwind Girl right now, I really enjoy the performance of Yang Yang just because of his great action sequences and his OMG so gorgeous face. His acting is fair too, although there really isn’t much character deepness to have a fair understanding of his acting skills. With no exageration, I think he is the hottest actor right now in the Chinese entertainment and his name is always ranked high on weibo tag list.

As for Zheng Shuang, I have never been able to finish any of her dramas. :# I really try too, but her actings really aren’t that great and her face changed so much after plastic surgery and plastic surgery. The only one I liked where she was in was Ancient Swords where she played a really cute fox spirit. Apart from that, it is really hard for me to get into her dramas :S

The novel is about a campus prince and a gaming nerd falling in love. They will start filming this August.

    This is actually a very fun and well written book. I was just recommending it tonight because the main online game they play sounds so fun it even makes me want to play (I generally hate video gaming.) – so glad to hear this.

      xD I am just excited for the drama because I can 1) see more Yang Yang and 2) I can believe Gu Man to deliver a good story! But it sounds like the video gaming in this story is going to be a very important part finally and I think that’s great considering how many people love playing (Ancient period themed) video games! :O

      It is going to be a drama!😀 I never read the book or even listened to the audio version, but maybe I will try it one day. Is it hard to play out the gaming scenes? maybe they will use CG? ^^


  2. Yay! Longer goodness in a form of a drama ^-^ Like what Humbledaisy said above, the online game part was written very well, and it’s actually what hooked me onto the novel in the first place so I think it would be quite hard to maintain that standard in drama form. Honestly though, even if the gaming part turns out to be a flop, i would still watch because of the sass of the female lead. Love her role!

    As a fan of dramas, I am always happy for more (especially when the story comes from Gu Man). Really? Now, I am really curious as how they will do the gaming part too! Let’s hope there won’t be too much bad quality CG (like in Hua Qian Gu xD). Hope Zheng Shuang will be up to the expectations as the female lead!
