Hu Yitian to Lead “Go Go Squid’s” Latest Spin-Off
Mainland drama Go Go Squid <親愛的, 熱愛的> was one of the hottest dramas of 2019, and it immensely boosted the popularity of both leads Li Xian (李現) and Andy Yang (楊紫). The rest of the cast also enjoyed the limelight, but actor Hu Yitian (胡一天) particularly stood out with his tall stature, good looks, and cool image, which he established through his most well-known project, A Love So Beautiful <致我们单纯的小美好>. With the drama achieving great success, a spin-off, Fish in the Secret Chamber <密室困游魚>, is naturally in the works and filming commences around March or April.
It is reported Yitian is cast as the male lead in Fish in the Secret Chamber. He will likely partner up with actress Li Yitong (李一桐), as it is speculated that Zhener Wang (王真兒) will not reprise her role as Appledog for the drama.
In Go Go Squid, Wu Bai, portrayed by Yitian, has a 10-year-long crush on the gaming goddess and representative of Team SP, Appledog, played by Zhener. Since they played the supporting couple in the drama, the love story between the two was inevitably more subtle and less developed. However, viewers still supported Wu Bai and Appledog’s love line, but they didn’t get to see how the couple’s relationship unfolded ever since the popular drama ended.
Now that a spin-off is announced, fans can look forward to satisfying their curiosities of Wu Bai’s backstory and expect a more in-depth love story between Wu Bai and Appledog.
Fish in the Secret Chamber is the second novel adaption of the popular novel series, Stewed Squid with Honey <蜜汁炖鱿鱼>. The story tells the conflicting relationship between Wu Bai and Appledog in their cybersecurity competitions. They are both competent leaders of their respective teams that are in opposition to each other. Due to their competitive natures and their roles as team leaders, the two repeatedly suppress their feelings for one another.
