Just when I was all ready to put away my My Sunshine, the production team decided that they have more stuff to release. This week, 3 brand new lovely posters along with some new BTS stills were seen floating around the net. The posters were to showcase YiChen and MoSheng’s happily ever after the 2 years of marriage; hence, all the sweet and tenderness on display. Now my question is, “Why didn’t they release these when the drama was first broadcast?” Seriously, Tiffany and Wallace has the nicest genuine smiles. They have such beautiful smiles, there’s no fakeness what so ever.
When the drama aired back in January, the ratings were decent (averaging around 1.2 or higher). Tiffany’s other 2 dramas (Lady & the Lair and Legend of Fragrance) came out after My Sunshine and did even better on national broadcast. However, on the internet, no other dramas came close to all the buzz My Sunshine had generated. Now comes out word that the drama will be rebroadcast again on Shenzhen Satellite TV during prime time (starting on March 27) and hence all the promo recently. Even the super busy Tiffany and Wallace manage to make an appearance together at the recent Louis Vuitton’s event. I don’t think I’ve seen an OTP couple do so much press together for one drama before.
On the big screen is the movie adaptation starring Huang XiaoMing and Yang Mi called You Are My Sunshine. It is expected to be released May 1st of this year. I have been very neutral and have come to accept HXM and YM as another alternative version of YC & MS . Lately, everything is becoming a joke starting with the casting. I really wanted to see a genuine love story between MS & YC. However, it’s kind of hard to believe their love when HXM’s real life girlfriend is cast as YiMei. There’s apparently Hawick Lau (YM’s husband) and Vicki Zhao (HXM’s bestie) making a cameo.
Promotion stuff are not looking good as well. The recently released stills are apparently back when MS and YC are in their college’s days. What tha…?!!! Did they not read the book? When did MS have short hair? Should I be happy instead knowing I’ll be watching a completely new & different version of the drama? I kind of understand Gu Man’s frustration with this movie production now.
If you are like me, you’ll need to take a look down your memory lane with these newer stills of My Sunshine to calm down:
