Tencent premiered the second season of the reality dating show, “Heart Signal II” (心动的信号2) on June 19. This is a remake of the Korean show with the same name. The show follows 3 single men and 3 single women who live together under one roof to find a a possible love match with someone in the house. The show is narrated with a panel of celebrities with only Rocket Girls 101’s Yang Chaoyue (楊超越) returning from the first season. In the new season, they added Victoria Song (宋茜), Zheng Kai (鄭愷), Rainie Yang (楊丞琳), Du Haitao (杜海涛), and Liu Xuan (刘轩). At the end of each episode, the panel determines which couple will match with each other.
This season has already garnered a lot of buzz due to the high aesthetics of the housemates. One particular male housemate, Chen Yichen (陈奕辰), looks a lot like Chinese actor, Chen Kun (陈坤). The resemblance is so uncanny that the topic “Chen Yichen resembles Chen Kun” started trending on Weibo once the episode aired.
The three women in the house were quite captivated with Chen Yichen as they all sent texts to him at the end of the first day, showing their interest in him. It was quite awkward as the three male housemates are sitting together in the living room while waiting for the female housemates to text them. Upon seeing Chen Yichen looking at his phone so long, it was quite clear Chen Yichen got all the texts. However, it’s not just the ladies who are captivated with Chen Yichen. The other male housemate, Zhou Qijun (赵琦君) was mesmerized with Chen Yichen when they first met each other. He even told him, “You are very handsome” after taking a deep gulp.
