After historical dramas became summer’s biggest hits, it is finally time for modern romance series to shine. Gong Jun (龔俊) and Elane Zhong Chuxi’s (鍾楚曦) Rise With the Wind <我要逆風去> premiered on October 30, ahead of Dylan Wang Hedi (王鹤棣) and Bai Lu’s (白鹿) Only for Love <以愛為營> . However, rumor has it that Only for Love will air in November and will go head-to-head in competition with Rise With the Wind.
Rising to fame after his successful historical drama Word of Honor <山河令>, Gong Jun’s subsequent dramas have been closely watched. Despite its hype, Legend of Anle <安樂傳> with Dilraba Dilmurat (迪麗熱巴) only received a meager 5.8 point rating in Douban. His next prominent drama is Fox Spirit Matchmaker <狐妖小紅娘月紅篇> with Yang Mi (楊冪). All eyes are on Gong Jun to see how Rise With the Wind will perform, but it is suspected that idol drama Only For Love will be its top competitor.
After his debut in Meteor Garden <流星花園>, Dylan made another breakthrough in Love Between Fairy and Devil <蒼蘭訣>, becoming one of China’s most beloved idol actors.
Although Rise With the Wind has a large following, Only for Love remains as the hotter topic, with the show being one of the most searched tags on Douyin. Even if the latter drama does not have an official air date yet, many fans are excited by the teaser clips released.
