#talk 19: Boss & Me Drama Trailer (English subs)!



   Why so adorable? Gu Man's Come and Eat Shan Shan! drama adaptation known as "Boss and Me" is absolutely adorable! I think Zhao Li Ying just oozes cuteness and is perfect! I don't find Zhang Han handsome at all, but I guess his frostiness is a fun contrast to Zhao Li Ying's bubbling cuteness. 

   I like the first half of the trailer and I think the second half hints of possible senseless angst, but I'm still excited! Count me in. I have translated the trailer for those who can't understand chinese...





Random man: Ms Xue Shan Shan?

Feng Teng: My sister has the same blood type as you. She is now in the operation theatre. I hope you can stay here in case of necessity. 

Unknown younger male next to Feng Teng: Let me introduce for you - this is Feng Teng. 

Shan Shan (shocked): Big boss?

Feng Teng's sister: Ms Xue's personality is very warm and innocent. How shall we thank her?

Feng Teng: The usual - a cheque.

Feng Teng's sister: You are so vulgar! Fine, fine, I will think of something myself. 

Secretary: May I ask who is Ms Xue? 

Shan Shan: I am Xue Shan Shan. 

Secretary: Ms Xue, lunch box from the boss. 

Secretary: Shan Shan, lunch box!

Secretary: Shan Shan, your lunch box. 

Shan Shan: This is great. I eat like a pig and no one can see. 

Shan Shan: Shan Shan is a small sun, full of positive energy. Shan Shan, add oil (a way of saying work hard/do your best)!

Unknown younger male next to Feng Teng (I'm guessing his secretary? a friend?): Are you interested in Shan Shan?

Feng Teng: Don't talk rubbish!

Feng Teng's male friend: I think Shan Shan is nice, she's cute, innocent and kind. She also has a mind of her own and isn't materialistic. Most importantly, she does not have a boyfriend.

Feng Teng: You speak so well of her, why don't you like her?

Feng Teng's male friend: Did I say I didn't like her?

Feng Teng's sister: Tell me, what special traits does Shan Shan have?

Feng Teng: None. If you really want to say, there is only one - she can eat.

Shan Shan (clapping): New year! Quick see, quick see!

Feng Teng: Actually for every year's countdown to the new year, I am here alone watching the fireworks.

Shan Shan (thinks to herself): This does not feel real. Is this a dream?

Feng Teng: I will not leave you alone when you are hurting and not do anything anymore... I want the whole world to know that this fish pond has been booked by you. 

Shan Shan: I have fallen for you. Look at me, am I what you like?

*KISS*

Feng Teng: Xue Shan Shan, let's try. 

Li Shu (aka evil woman): I don't understand. This kind of woman - how can she deserve to be with you?

Feng Teng: Li Shu! Enough!

Li Shu: I admit I like Feng Teng. 

Feng Teng: Don't go. 

Shan Shan: You once told me, let's try. Now, I finally understand what you mean by let's try. 



*SQUEALS* I think Shan Shan is adorable and I want to watch Feng Teng grovel for her. *Please?*

  1. Haha this looks quite cute and fluffy. Zhao Li Ying is soooo petite next to Zhang Han! Actually Zhao Li Ying isn't really my idea of Shan Shan in the novel but she does cute well. Zhang Han - never saw any of his dramas but he doesn't have the suave air I imagine Feng Teng to have.

    1. I hope it is cute and fluffy! I will abandon ship if it gets too angsty, though I'm looking forward to grovelling (please?! Let Shan Shan win in this drama?). I think Zhang Han looks like someone has perpetually stolen his lollipop. Hahaha.

    2. Just watched the trailer... what can I say ? :) Such a cute story!! Is Zhao Li Ying really that tiny or is the male lead that big? They do make such a charming ( ! ) couple though !!

      Delete
    3. Yes!!! You know I haven't had the chance to watch the drama yet? Only the first three episodes ><. I think Zhao Li Ying is really that tiny lol

      Delete
    4. I'm onto Ep.8 & I think the male lead has the prettiest eyes ever lol !! They are more expressive than the rest of him put together !! AND ( this is imp in a CEO ! ) he walks straight & doesn't slouch !! The story though, so far, so good ...

    5. Awww thanks for the feedback! I really must marathon it one day ♡

      Delete
    6. Marathon hmmm..... not sure about that ! A little at a time perhaps ?!! Like Ms.LemonSalt's lollipop !! :) Broken heart ? But this is work, so surely the director etc have a hand in the performances ? As for Ms.Zhao, she's just adorable. Have you watched her other series Female PM ? Just saw it being advertised on tv.

    7. Haha I will try and take your advice! I agree, zhao liying is very cute! The female PM drama is also on my to watch list

  2. I think Zhang Han looks like someone has perpetually stolen his lollipop. - That's pretty good already! For me, he resembles a statue in most of his scenes, and when he speaks, there is no expression in his eyes. But to be fair to him, the drama should be seen in entirety before judging him :)

    1. Teehee! I hope they have chemistry! I'm really excited for this <3 Hahah statue! Haha but Zhang Han is apparently nursing a broken heart so we shall see!

  3. oooh i am waiting for this drama and Gu Man's other drama (SS, which is one of my fav book). When will this start to air?

    1. Hello fangorn, it starts 8th July!!!!!! Heehee, I'm so excited. <3 If it's good, I will definitely write more.

  4. Sigh..zhanghan is too sweet to play fengteng. I think Hawick lau is more suitable to play a cool,handsome, expressionless but passionate fengteng. Reality oh reality.. But maybe i'll change my mind after watching few episodes ^^

    1. Hawick Lau does seem to have perfected that cynical grimace in his recent roles, but somehow he feels too old for Feng Teng in my head. Of course, I have casted Hyun Bin when I read it hahahahahaha.

  5. I went on a holidays & when I returned I found out that my Shan Shan has been kidnapped by decembi, LOL. Luckily I didn't sub the trailer or else wasted my effort. Could you please tell me what you've done or plan to do on GM's novels so that I can just provide a link & save myself from doing any work as I don't lurk around here all the time:P?

    I never like Zhang Han as FT but what is filmed must be accepted:( I've no idea who is best as FT but bongsd influenced me to think Chen Xiao will make a better FT, lol.

    1. Hahaha, don't worry, I'm not kidnapping Shan Shan. But, I'm excited about the drama! I've not written anything on Gu Man's novels and don't really plan to since Gu Man is your specialty. I wanted to write reviews for her novels and maybe something on the Smiling novel, but doubt I ever will considering my neverending to do list haha. I can't wait to watch the drama!

      Hahaha, Chen Xiao and Zhao Liying are very cute. Chen Xiao is good looking but quite small sized haha. I hope Zhang Han is better in the drama. *cross fingers*

    2. I don't own Shan Shan but since I translated that novel so I feel kind of obligated to inform everyone of the latest developments. Feel free to review, sub or recap the drama or any of GM's books but pls do tell me so I don't need to do anything but include a link as I am very slack lol. I always try to do as little as possible so I am still considering if I'll recap the drama which is so hard work:(

      Delete
    3. Hahaha! It's great that you update on the developments! I love to read the Silent Separation drama news too. I translated the trailer on a spur of the moment when I saw the trailer on jaynestars or cfensi (can't recall now haha) and i was like OMG SO CUTE. Jiayou jiayou, please recap! I love to read recaps. I doubt I will recap unless i super love the drama.

      Delete
  6. Hey, do inform me if u super love the drama & wanna recap so we can do it together, you provide the words & i provide the pics lol. As for Silent, I am still waiting for WC to start filming, shouldn't be long since I've finished my holidays lol.

    1. Hahaha, ok I will inform you. Though, I don't think I will recap in the classic way. Probably just post squealing entries here and there. My workload is too heavy :(. Yes, your Wallace won! So sad. Haha. I need to go read Hua Qian Gu now for Wallace Huo hahaha.

      Delete
  7. Yes, the best man won lol. But objectivly speaking WH is most suitable to be the shifu in HQG and not Yi Chen. Moreoever ancient drama is always more popular with the audience so in reality your WH is the winner. Even lidge has defected to fangirling him in HQG. Hence go & read the novel & visualise WH in the role. I think I know why I am indifferent to WH. It is becos he looks like a shifu & I dislike shifu lol. I hope WC will never have a role as a shifu lol.

    1. Hahahah your shifu phobia! The stills for HQG are sooo pretty. They have apparently changed it completely to wu xia though with little xianxia elements. I'm excited for both dramas <3

      Delete
    2. See, you never read my blog:( bcos I wrote lidge said they'll film the xianxia elements for overseas release exactly like the novel. China will only get the wuxia bits if xianxia is banned. I am watching Jerry's drama, it is quite nice in a bad way lol.

      Delete
    3. I do! Hahaha I checked your blog weekly. I must have missed that part. WOO! But would they, really? I somehow feel skeptical about how lucrative the overseas market is for china productions. So excited now!!! Oh I watched the trailer for that, but it seems very tortured! hahahha

      Delete
  8. Isn't it taboo to fall in love with your shifu in a wuxia world, just like ROCH? Moreover their age gap also very wide. Don't tell me it is ok for guy but not gal bcos XLN is a woman. I don't know how it'll work in wuxia but for xianxia you can do anything, just look at all the mismatch & fantasy plot.

    Yah, pretty angst which is the fun lol. Later, Jerry will turn all sweet & mushy that makes you blush lol. The drama is quite diff fr the book. I think the drama is better in most aspects but the change in characters are too arupt bcos if I remembered correctly, they edited out a fair bit on the developments bcos they are too cheap to go to New York to film lol. This drama will finish b4 Shan Shan starts airing, such perfect timing lol.

    1. Haha yeah it's taboo! Since shifu is kind of like your father/parent. I agree that it can be squicky! So it's only nice when it's done well. Hahaha. For xianxia, I suppose gods are meant to break boundaries? Hahaha.

      Oooh will there be a time skip? I think I may only watch the ending/grovelling part. The female lead is a bit too weak for my taste! I can't wait for the hungry happy Shan Shan!

      Delete
    2. I can't find anything on WH in your blog. You've not done your fangirling service like hui3r & me, shame on you lol.

      No time skip but 270 degree change in character lol. I don't think the female lead is weak. She is actually stronger than the male lead implicitly. I think the beginning is good, especially the custody battle. As a lawyer, you should watch it lol. Later, after they hooked up, I think the story gonna turn typical & bland. It is always best when the characters are not attached to each other, to watch them denying their feelings lol.

      Delete
    3. Hahahha! I did a post on imperial doctress - Liu Shi Shi and Wallace are so cuttteee. Too bad, they aren't the OTP in that one :(. Most of Wallace's shows aren't good hahaha, he is just perfectly pretty.

      I think the custody battle is not very realistic hahahaha. Won't you watch and think how can any court be so cruel??? Hahahaha deny their feelings. All that tension! Hahaha.

      Delete
  9. Mookie thinks battle of changsa is the best drama on earth lol. Hui3r watched swordsman & perfect couple just for WH. As a fangirl, you are not supposed to question the quality of his drama, just squeal with excitement in whatever drama he is in lol.

    The court in China is diff lol. I interpreted the 'great china dream' too deeply to explain why Shan Shan is airing so early & big brother dropped me a comment to say I've over-interpreted it, lol.

    1. Oooh I saw that entry on Mookie's blog. WH looks SOOOO good in that. Teehee. It's definitely on my list to watch. I just have so little time ><. Today is more free because I will be going on leave tmr YAY.

      Hahaha! Censorship in China is mind-boggling. I'm just relieved when I see the drama I like finally broadcasting! <3

  10. Lol I was rereading Little Moon and I know you put Liu Shi Shi as Yue, but personally Yue is so adorable and cute that I've always thought that Zhao Li Ying was a better fit. Especially since the artsy picture you used for Yue in your character chart thing is one where she's got a bun and is wearing the hat-thing, which if you've seen some of Hua Qian Gu, is practically Zhao Li Ying's exact outfit. I swear ZLY embodies my ideal Yue perfectly. Either way though, I think your Little Moon fic will forever be my favorite of all three because Yue/Hsiao is just so sweet!

    1. Omg you are right. Zhao Li Ying looks exactly like Yue! She also does look like a Little Moon. I have to admit that I did not know about zly when I wrote Little Moon. But now that you mentioned it wallace and zly have super awesome pictures for yue and hsiao!!!! I think i need to write abt this haha ♡♡♡
