Another online youth drama with a very catchy albeit familiar title Your Highness, Class Monitor ( 班长“殿下” ), is about to start with Niu Jun Feng and Fair Xing as the main OTP starting May 30th on streaming sites Tencent and Mango TV. Both actors have come from recently concluded successful youth dramas, The Brightest Star in the Sky and Put Your Head on My Shoulder.
Filming for the drama adaptation of popular novel Mi Ai Ban Fen Bai: Xiao Cao De Zhuan Shu Tian Xin written by An Xiang Yuan started in March 2017 and ended in June in Taiwan. After 2 years in the freezer, it finally is green-lighted most probably because the leads are now relatively known. Co-produced by Penguin Film and Beijing Hairun New Force and directed by Chen Yan Ming, the inspirational 36-episodes online series will air 2 episodes every Thursday-Saturday at 20:00.
The story is pretty much the same as many youth dramas which centers around the schools’s resident rich, rebellious bad boy and not so wealthy, simple, good girl who meets during unpleasant circumstances and started out as enemies but eventually falls in love with each other. Cliché. But you might want to give it a try. As for me, I’m going to wait until all episodes have been aired and then binge watch the whole thing.
Let’s meet the characters! and watch the trailer here.
