We Are in Love Season 2 Announces Cast

1

Is this a joke? On SkimmedMilkDRAMA, Dramarian and I were discussing about the possible and exciting new coupling for We Are In Love Season 2《相爱吧2》(check out all the possible bachelors on this say post). As they are premiering in February 14th, JiangSu TV need to find the new couples fast AND start filming! Today, news outlet announced the new three couples and I want to slap them and wake them up from this nonsense. By the way, since there weren’t any BTS released, maybe the couples can still change? (leave my delusional hope alone, ok…).

ps; We wrote so many articles these days..😦 it is because.. c-entertainment never sleep and all those articles we thought were really interesting… We will try to slow down.

As we did the same with season 1, here we are introducing you to season 2’s highly probably candidates…

1. Chen Bolin and Song Jihyo

The most WTF couple for me. They will start filming the show next week. When Jiangsu TV bought the rights for the show, were they forced to cast at least one Korean in each season? I mean, why? WHY?? What about my beautiful Monday Couple. This is so weird…

Ok. Let’s give some background check on these two. Chen Bolin is a famous Taiwanese actor now based in China. His most famous OTP is with Ariel Lin for the TW-drama In Time With You. In the recent year, he also ventured in the Korean market by having a Korean representative agency and working with K-actresses like Ha Jiwon and is friend with SNSD’s YoonA. In brief, he probably can speak a bit of Korean. He is super funny so to see him casted is a great thing.

BUT, Song Jihyo? Song Jihyo is the sole female member of the Korean variety show Running Man. On the show, she has a lovely cute on-screen relationship with Kang Gary or as fans call them, the Monday Couple (because they film RM on Monday). Song Jihyo is one of the most active RM cast member in China as she attended a lot of Chinese awards show in the past years and even came on some variety show. However, I believe she can’t recreate what she has with Kang Gary with Chen Bolin. After all, it is not Gary. If this rumor turns out to be true, then I bet Korea will be super mad too. After all, they had been yelling for years to have the Monday Couple on their version of We Got Married.

2. Shawn Yue and Zhou Dongyu

Shawn Yue is currently 34 years old. He had starred in a lot of good movies such as Jiang Hu and Internal Affairs II. I don’t really follow him a lot so I can’t say much about his personality. Zhou Dongyu on the other hand is a really cute actress that I love (she did Palace Movie, Under the Hawthorn Tree, My Old Classmate and the soon to be aired I hope Love &Life&Lie). She appeared on a lot of variety show now and showed her cute, silly and… immature sides. I am happy to see her more exposed of course, but I am also worried as she isn’t that cut for variety. I don’t think they really got their name entangled with other actors so far. However, isn’t Shawn Yue a little bit too old for her? I mean, she is only 23 years old. I just hope the publicist messed up and meant to write Shawn Dou. I mean that, that would be a good couple (the two were OTP for their first major project Under the Hawthorn Tree).

3. Wei Daxun and Li Qin

I am not too familiar with those two either so I had to do some searching. All I found is that he once appeared on Happy Camp… and he is signed under JYP Entertainment. Oupppss… So, is this news legit? It is possible. He acted in the drama One and a Half Summer with Nichkhun. So, let’s see how much the scandal will cool down before the premire of We Are in Love to see how welcoming Chinese watchers are of this couple. As for Li Qin, she is so pretty!! I often saw pictures of her photoshoots and she often look flawless. She acted in the 2010 Hong Long Meng The Dream of Red Mansions and also in other projects such as My Amazing Bride in 2015. I can’t judge on the chemistry so far…

  1. ohmygosh, this is a bit lackluster if we are to compare it with the 1st season zZzzZ… change the girl for my Bolin please!!😦 thanks for the updates, dear!

    “When Jiangsu TV bought the rights for the show, were they forced to cast at least one Korean in each season?” – VERY WELL-SAID >_< omg if it's filming next week then we get to see if there's some truth in it already :-s

    I'd watch for Bolin but also only if you're right that it's supposed to be Shawn Dou with Dongyu because I've always wanted them to cast a former onscreen pairing! Here's to hoping for the best😦

      Same feeling, nobody in this cast really feel like the “perfect” ship. If I can only make one change for this casting, it would be to take off Jihyo. I love the girl, but her casting in this is a big no no on so many levels. Hope the first BTS will tell us these are false rumors… (although I am sure at least 2 of the couples must be real…).
      Shawn Dou+Zhou Dongyu all the way!❤ I want a former OTP to star on We Are in Love!

      • In the last season, at least 2 were wrong so hope it would be the same here -_-. It’s Chinese WGM so why keep casting Koreans when they have their own already T_T oh well, I guess that’s how it really is! I really can’t imagine Bolin with anyone else (this is also the cause of my frequent ITWY rewatching…) HAHA but I’m excited to watch him as a “boyfriend” *swoons*.

        Yeah, I hope they could shuffle the coupbles because the ZDY+SY one’s age just doesn’t match at all. I also don’t agree on the need of a Korean actress because the communication gets very complicated to follow afterward. But since Jihyo has a strong fandom, maybe we will again get some English sub ^^
        Bolin Chen matches Ariel Lin so well, too bad the girl is already taken.😦 Me too, so excited to see him regularly on a variety show!

      It is hard to say since he isn’t a celebrity so they didn’t have to announce their breakup. But I think they are not together anymore because in the last year, there were a lot of Monday Couple scenes on Running Man. And now this…

      Bolin Chen is really awesome! He is so much fun on variety show so I am sure you will like him too! ^^ I don’t know much about Shawn Yue, but I think with Jihyo, as long as she actually takes the time to meet the guy, they may have very cute romance! The problem’s when she meets the person for the first time (cause she needs time to warm up). hope language won’t be a barrier!

    Please! Don’t miss with the other half of the Monday Couple! Happy if Bolin will be on the show, but…. not with Jihyo. I just not into the couple pairing this year, all the couples last year were great. Wei Daxun and Li Qinare the only ones who look well matched and I’m just judging by their appearance, not chemistry wise.

      Yeah, the couples aren’t as exciting as last year. Bolin Chen is legit the only one of my “wanted cast” list😛 Zhou Dongyu worries me a bit because she can act quiet bratty some time (which isn’t always a good thing when dating). But I guess the goal of this show is also to present fresh faces we aren’t too familiar with?

      Haha, I can’t agree with any of the pairings so far either. But I am sure I will at least try out the pilot cause it is so hard to see celebrities date…

  4. I pity Jihyo and Gary since Monday couple get high popularity on tv and fans are messing all around with that shipping making them uncomfortable and awkward. Feels like each of them can’t be in real relationships but as Monday couple. It doesn’t fair.

    Bolin and Jihyo are random, I rather prefer him cast with Ha Jiwon, they even had a romance-rumor.

      I love the Monday Couple too ].. but I am not a crazy shipper. I totally understand that they are not dating, but seeing them interact just make me happy. So I guess that’s why I am so against her going on a dating show. Yeah! I would have liked Chen Bolin and Ha Jiwon way more (they even had a photoshoot together recently). Oh well..

    too many mondayshippers on this site, I think Song Ji Hyo and Chen Bolin make a much muuuuch better couple, together they look like a celebity couple, Song Ji Hyo is a rare beauty and it’s soo nice when she is coupled with handsome men, it just feels right visually seeing them together. when she is coupled with gary it’s like seeing the beauty and the beast next to eachother. I can already feel that the Song Ji Hyo and Chen Bolin couple will be my favourite one, I really can’t WAIT for the show to air.

    • Haha, the Monday Couple had been a real ship for years now so it is understandable we have a hard time to let go.😛 I think Song Jihyo and Kang Gary match really well together and don’t find Gary ugly at all. Because Jihyo rarily put on make-up, their visual is a bit more plain compared to other celebrity ship/couples, but that just make them even more refreshing! I think I will check out Chen Bolin+Jihyo’s We Are in Love because based on the released BTS so far, they look quiet dashing😉 Curious how they will overcome the language barrier.

    I don’t know anyone but Ji Hyo, but I honestly like this ship between her and Bolin. They look good together, and I’m not about to hate a ship over Monday Couple. You people do realize, Ji Hyo and Gary is just a TV ship. You shouldn’t dislike a couple because of Monday Couple. Honestly, they look good together, and I know they might become the power couple

    • I agree with you. Bolin Chen and Song Jihyo are definitely going to be the it power couple of the season. I frankly won’t watch the other two couples (Zhou Dongyu romancing a man 10 years older than her feels weird) and the other couple looks too boring for me to get interested… I wanna give JH and BC a chance because they are both talented actors/entertainers. It will be hard for them to communicate, but I hope their scenes turn out to be good.
      xD I understand. But the thing is, as much as Monday Couple is a TV ship, so will be Bolin Chen+Jihyo. It may sound unfair, but when I already have one pairing I like very much, so I don’t feel like jumping my beautiful (and strong) ship for a newer and less experienced one. Hehe, using metaphor here.
