Xu Kai, Cheng Xiao Star in New Gaming Series
After Love O2O <微微一笑很傾城> and Go Go Squid <親愛的, 熱愛的> became popular among viewers, a new gaming series will star Xu Kai (許凱) and Cosmic Girls’ Cheng Xiao (程瀟). Titled You’re Beautiful When You Smile <你微笑時很美>, the drama is generating quite a bit of buzz, although some comments are trending negative over the suitability of Cheng Xiao’s casting.
After shooting to stardom for his beloved role as Fu Heng in Story of Yanxi Palace <延禧攻略> last year, Xu Kai has been offered countless leading roles. While fans feel confident in Xu Kai being cast in You’re Beautiful When You Smile due to his good looks and solid acting abilities, many question Cheng Xiao’s lack of acting experience especially since she has mainly concentrated on developing her K-pop music career in South Korea.
Netizens also believe that You’re Beautiful When You Smile had plagiarized other works. Although there is a lack of evidence, the rumors alone could potentially affect the overall outcome of this production. Others don’t believe this will impact the drama’s reception, as popular dramas Eternal Love <三生三世十里桃花> and The Princess Weiyoung <錦繡未央> similarly faced plagiarism lawsuits and claims during their broadcast. The drama’s respective stars Yang Mi (楊冪) and Tiffany Tang (唐嫣) became even more popular afterward.
