First OST released Love You But Can’t Meet by Wei Chen
It is a ballad that they will most likely play during sad scenes. I instantly liked it when listening to it the first time which usually does not happen. With this impressive song, I think the drama will be a success. Let’s just hope the dubbing doesn’t sound too annoying.
Additional posters and still. They released a lot.
I watched “Queen In Hyun’s Man” and loved it. I wouldn’t say it’s the best but it was a nice journey and with all these pretty stills released, it me want to watch it. This is the power of marketing and giving out eye candy.
I am more interested in this drama because of the second leads. What got me to even look at this drama is that this is Nana’s first C-drama and I believe her first acting experience. She looks striking in that side shot. I am currently watching “Loving, Never Forgetting”, got to know Huang Bo Jun from there, and is surprised that he’s in this too.
Anyways I look forward to this release. Right now I am pretty interested in chinese dramas and actually think that this chinese remake may be able to triumph the korean version. Usually I don’t think remakes ever beats the original but this might turn out to be an exception.
Yeah for a remake or nah and skip?
