Guys, the universe has reunited Shan Cai and Dao Ming Shi! Okay, granted it’s 2018 Shan Cai and 2001 Dao Ming Shi, but it still counts! (For those feeling lost, Shan Cai and Dao Ming Shi are characters from Taiwanese drama “Meteor Garden,” which also has a Korean version, “Boys Over Flowers.” Jerry Yan was the male lead in the 2001 version, whereas Shen Yue was the female lead for the 2018 version).
As I was saying, Shan Cai and Dao Ming Shi have reunited Jerry Yan and Shen Yue are the leads of the new C-drama “Count Your Lucky Stars.” Now to be perfectly fair, this drama is not perfect. If you take it too seriously, you may find yourselves rolling your eyes at the tropes or the rough dubbing. But if you’re just looking for a fun breezy drama that you can unwind to at the end of your busy day, then this one would be good for you! It’s only 34 episodes long with each episode coming in at around 40 minutes, so you’ll breeze through them fast.
My favorite scene from the whole drama: Three women sipping tea while watching their child-like men brawling.
And at the heart of the drama are our two main characters, Lu Xing Cheng (Jerry Yan), a fashion designer who became a fashion editor instead due to a trauma, and Tong Xiao You (Shen Yue), a talented up-and-coming fashion designer looking for a chance to prove herself. Fate constantly brings them together, and they realize how lucky they are to have found each other. [FULL STORY]
