@Annya Yah, we have a hard task trying to maintain 3 threads at the same time :D 

I was interested to know why the director picked Qi Liang as the male lead here. They worked together before in the last Drama for the director as second lead. So I searched and got this article, the director praised Qi saying "he way of the performance let me very surprise, he is able to make public the role of bad deduce astute, the characters in the text to play live."

So he surely made an impression on the director and as Qi said in this article "Don't Judge a book by its cover". I hope we really so good acting in this drama specially from our girl.

The article also mentioned how Qi was handpicked for one of his dramas by the producer and how he is known for his acting chops. He can create chemistry with all his co-stars. The article also mentioned that he is not handsome in the traditional sense, but his mono eyelid look has a following among fans.

Actually, I am a bit concerned about his look in the drama, because Jin Xing doesn't look that much older than him. They look more like siblings. The only way is to make Jin look older by her wearing traditional Chinese dresses.

@ELY_397 Yah, they don't have much age difference in real life also.

I actually saw some pictures that seemed like taken from poster shooting for the drama for Jin Xing (although I am not able to find them again) and she was with older hair style and fashion sense compared to her look in the meeting pictures we saw.

Hopefully the visual don't distract us so much in this drama.

News about Dong Wei Jia's role, I don't really understand what the role she plays but I guess she may have feelings for the husband!!

http://ent.sina.com.cn/v/m/2016-05-03/doc-ifxrtzte9904922.shtml

Also a couple of news with details of the roles for another couple of our secondary characters

From what I understand Liu Xiao Xiao (刘小小) play the role of Xu Man Li (MIL) daughter so she is the little sister of the husband

Haha TQ for telling me i thought why is the actress playing mother looking like that.Since i am still not familiar with her face and also updating chinese name :D And all the new info abt the cast.

@ELY_397 What siblings :lol:But even if the actor has been picked on talent based they should look mother and son.The male actor already look quite mature .And if they is small age gap how will they look son and mother.Audience would find weird.

I saw some entries about the drama mentioning it being again 40 Episodes with 45 minutes each, one mentioned about it being aired on Hunan TV and it would air in May 2017 but I am not sure since it wasn't mentioned in any of official news. Also I may not want it to air on Hunan TV because I do think if it is on another station even if less popular, it will be more possible to skip dubbing.

@Annya I know! The actor already looks 8-10 years older than Da Hae. Unless she is the step-mother or something...?

@apqaria When you hear DH speak Chinese, she actually enunciates very well and her speech is articulate albeit slow. This might be a problem when she is acting out angry scenes that require faster talking, but since her character is Korean it doesn't make sense for her to speak perfect Chinese either. I am hoping they will let her dub her own voice after the filming so she can concentrate on putting more emotions in her speech. It is like doing voice acting but you are looking at a script so there is no need to memorise lines.

@ELY_397 Yah, actually when this project was announced I did think that one of the reason Dahae did accept it is that she will be able to act her role with her own voice and show her Chinese. The decision is usually in the broadcasting station hand and hopefully they will be smart enough to take the right and obvious way to go here because as you said it is expected that her Chinese won't be perfect and she is acting Korean anyway.

Mentioning her dubbing her own voice, I remember "Love Actually" they made all the Chinese actors dub their own voices so they could also do this here including Da-hae as well.
