Chinese actor, Xu Kaicheng (徐開騁), rose to stardom after starring in the series, “Well-Intended Love” (奈何BOSS要娶我). The popularity of the web drama was so high that a second season with the original cast was announced last month. However, before filming has even started for “Well-Intended Love 2,” it was announced today that Xu Kaicheng is starring in a new series called, “Young and Beautiful” (我的漂亮朋友), with Crystal Zhang (張天愛). Filming has started as the cast and crew attended the blessing ceremony today.
Instead of playing a CEO, Xu Kaicheng will be playing a college professor in “Young and Beautiful.” According to information released by the crew, his character is also a stock trader who appears to be open on the surface, but very reserved on the inside with a sharp tongue and good at masking things. Female lead, Crystal Zhang, also rose to fame through a web series called, “Go Princess Go” (太子妃升職記). In the new series, she plays a girl from the village that moves to Shanghai to make a living and meets Xu Kaicheng and a bunch of good friends. Along the way, she becomes lost, but eventually rediscovers her original intentions for moving to Shanghai.
