ICYMI, Jerry Yan (42) and Shen Yue (22) are starring in a Chinese drama together! Jerry played the original Dao Ming Si in the 2001 Meteor Garden series, while Shen portrayed Dao Ming Si's (Dylan Wang) love interest, Shan Cai, in the 2018 remake!
Here's everything you need to know about their upcoming project:
The drama is called The Exchange Luck and it's a rom-com!
The series will tell the story of an arrogant Editor-In-Chief named Lu Xhingcheng (Jerry) who has the best luck and a young fashion designer (Shen) with the worst luck. They cross paths and exchange "luck" after a chance first kiss! OMG.
Here's the teaser poster for the series:
The story is based on a web novel of the same name.
Check out these screencaps from the OG comic:
They started filming in July 2019!
The drama is set to have 24 episodes, although there is no definite release date yet. Here are some behind the scenes pics from fans:
This drama is Jerry's TV comeback after a 2016 injury.
He went on hiatus due to health concerns when he injured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during a basketball game in December 2016. He took a break from acting to focus on his recovery.
This is not Jerry and Shen's first onscreen appearance together!
In April 2019, the pair reenacted one of the most famous Meteor Garden scenes EVER, and gave us all the feels! During the heartbreaking scene, Shan Cai ends things with Dao Ming Si in the pouring rain and tells him that she's moving out of his house because she doesn't want to have anything to do with his family anymore.
