The chemistry between Shen Yue (沈月) and Jerry Yan (言承旭) in Count Your Lucky Stars <我好喜歡你> is garnering praises after the greatly anticipated mainland Chinese rom-com premiered on August 3. As Jerry rose to fame playing Dao Ming Si in the 2001 Taiwanese series, Meteor Garden <流星花園>, and Shen Yue found popularity playing Shan Cai in the 2018 Chinese remake of Meteor Garden, many fans were excited to see the two stars in one frame. Supporters commented that it’s like Dao Ming Si time-traveled 20 years later to meet the new Shan Cai.
Although there were claims that 43-year-old Jerry initially felt stressed to collaborate with someone 20 years younger than him, especially for his return to the television scene after four years, the behind-the-scenes cuts revealed the two happily working together with great chemistry. In fact, Shen Yue previously disclosed on a variety show that she is happy to have the opportunity to work with her long-time idol.
The actress shared that she watched the Taiwanese Meteor Garden with her mom and sister when she was around three or four years old. With her entire family being fans of Jerry, she said her mom was so excited when she initially thought Shen Yue would be collaborating with Jerry in the 2018 Meteor Garden. “Although that wasn’t the case, she was exhilarated that I was able to achieve our family’s dream in Count Your Lucky Stars,” Shen Yue said.
Playing lovers in the drama, Shen Yue and Jerry’s romantic scenes in the trailer had fans squealing in delight. In particular, viewers noticed a scene in the trailer where the protagonists kissed seven times within 150 seconds. Fans gushed that the leads have “strong couple feels” and that they “didn’t imagine it would be so sweet.”
Count Your Lucky Stars revolves around an unlucky designer Tong Xiao You, played by Shen Yue, and a lucky and successful magazine editor-in-chief Lu Xing Cheng, played by Jerry. Despite his sharp and arrogant personality, 30-year-old Xing Cheng is well-known throughout the fashion industry for his luck and talent. However, this all changes when he shares an accidental kiss with Xiao You. The kiss swaps their lucks with each other, causing Xing Cheng to fall to rock bottom in his career while Xiao You reaches new heights of success. Seeking to help her idol revive his career, she sticks close to Xing Cheng, hoping that he will receive some of her luck. During this time, Xing Cheng warms up to Xiao You, and the two gradually find themselves falling in love with each other.
