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.
