Come to Eat, Shan Shan drama is now called Boss & Me. Surprisingly, it will be aired on 7th or 8th July depending on which timezone you reside, after the conclusion of The Third Kind of Love, another drama adapted from a novel. Although that novel is rather popular in China, the plot is not my cup of tea. Moreover shallow me, does not find the lead actor handsome enough for me to spend time with him, lol. I heard there will even be a movie version with Song Seung Hun and Liu Yi Fei. Instead, I am watching Loving, Never Forgetting, another drama adapted from a novel. Jerry’s fan, please don’t get offended but I am sorry to say he can’t act. But he looks good enough for me to follow the drama. The drama is okay, too much crying and angst but strangely entertaining maybe in a bad way, haha….
You Are My Sunshine has commenced filming and the cast members have been announced. I won’t introduce each and everyone of them but the main ones because I don’t know them which means you also may not know who they are. The booting ceremony took place on the 24th of June and they are currently filming the university parts with the young actor and actress so Wallace Chung won’t start filming until the beginning of July as he is busy promoting his new drama The Stand-In which is currently airing in China. I may be a Wallace’s fan but not a rabid one so I’ll give this drama a miss since I am not interested in it. Hopefully, this will give him more time to grow his hair to portray a handsome Yi Chen.
Mel who is a loyal fan of Wallace Chung has dedicatedly written an ancient fanfic with him and many other popular stars hosted in Moonblossom’s blog so for fans of the wuxia genre, do go there and support her.
I am very surprised that this drama is airing so soon. It had only been about half a year since the drama started filming and about four months since the drama finished filming. I am not complaining since they have waited for me to finish my holidays before broadcasting it, haha….I hope because it is a good drama so it can jump queue and get to be aired first. However, Bongsd told me it is because the drama fulfills the ‘Great China Dream’ criteria. What is that? I guess the government is like Big Boss and wants the people to behave like Shan Shan who is docile and obedient. The dream is probably to create a country with naive people who like to eat and subject to the tight control of the government. LOL
Below is the trailer of the drama. Decembi has translated the trailer into English. I won’t make any comment on it since it is only the trailer. My feeling is that it is average but lidge loves it so judge for yourself. The drama seems to follow the novel quite closely except the last bits with the confrontation between Shan Shan, Feng Teng and Li Shu.
A virtualvoyage.net has some cute stills of the drama especially the pictures of Shan Shan and Feng Teng having beef noodles after Feng Yue’s full moon banquet as well as a behind the scenes video. There are also a few behind the scenes videos in youtube. A lot of nice stills can also be found here with very updated news but it is in Vietnamese.
In case you’ve been a frog living under a well, the leads for Silent Separation drama called You Are My Sunshine are Wallace Chung and Tiffany Tang.
During the press conference, they sent each other a letter and the content will only be revealed when the weibo reached 100,000 comments. That target was easily achieved a few days later.

Ying Hui will be portrayed by Tan Kai. He was also the second male lead as the scorned fiance in Too Late To Say I Love You, another drama adapted from a novel with Wallace Chung as the lead. As Mel said, shallow us will stick to supporting Wallace Chung who is better looking, lol. I guess they found an uncle to be Ying Hui to match Wallace Chung in age even though Wallace looks way younger than him. The other younger male cast is a new addition who is not in the novel. He will be Mo Sheng’s colleague who I guess will have quite an important role.
These are the young Mo Sheng and Yi Chen when they were in university. I don’t know who they are because they are newcomers. This is to address the criticism of not giving chance to newbies as well as Wallace being too old to play the role of a university student. Hopefully, they can act their parts well since I do like their interactions during the university days as they are more light-hearted and funny.
Lastly, below is a fan-made MV with Wallace and Tiffany as the leads as a prelude to the drama.
