… of the country.
In fact, whip out your umbrellas (if you’re a hater) or binoculars (if you’re a supporter) because a new round of meteor shower is coming!
Indeed, the show has started filming its second season, named Let’s Watch Meteor Shower Again (一起又看流星雨), on the 18th WHILE casting for a secondary female lead. (In a bit of a hurry aren’t we?)
(In passing: at least name the new season something like 一起再看流星雨 or 二看流星雨. 『一起又看流星雨』, really?)
The second female lead is described to be the daughter of the principal. She is above Chu Yuxun — the female lead — in “every way” (literally, that’s how the source article phrased it) and falls in love with Murong Yunhai — the male lead –, who, after his amnesia, mistakenly believes her to be his girlfriend.
The casting conditions (amusingly) are the following:
- Age: between 17-20
- Height: 165 cm or taller
- Looks: better than Zheng Shuang, preferably both intelligent and elegant
- Other: Not signed to any management firm
(Wait, is this the casting criteria or am I reading a classified ad looking for a spouse?! Wait again, there’s no mention of previous acting experience either! So… Is it not even desired?)
The new season is expected to broadcast this coming summer and there will NOT be a third season. (Thank god. There’s only so many ways you can milk a cow.) A point to note, all the characters will be partnered up by the end of the upcoming season. So yay for this guy, who won’t be alone anymore:
(Oh and I hope the new stylist has the sense to change his hair style. Really, he’s A LOT better looking than this picture is letting out.)
That’s not all I’ve got for you. There’s more.
It’s confirmed that Let’s Watch Meteor Shower Together has sold its rights to broadcast in Korea (ITV) and Taiwan (SETTV). (The first episode is actually airing on ITV today.) Plans to broadcast in countries/city-state like Japan, Singapore, and Vietnam are still in the negotiation stage. In any case, eeMedia is proudly presenting the fruit of their first idol-drama investment in and out of the country. Now, won’t you give ’em a round of applause? 😉
