With just 2 more days before premiere, Someone Like You (聽見幸福) dropped its 16min long trailer earlier today in their screening press conference. I can finally heave a sigh of relief as the trailer shows a lot of potential. The tone feels a lot more lighthearted than the description in the sypnosis as it seems that the tragic car accident only takes up the very first portion of the story. Judging from the trailer, Lorene Ren‘s nurse character can be borderline annoying as she tends to overreact at times but Kingone Wang is really selling his character well, his acting is pretty solid. In terms of styling, I don’t feel there’s much difference between the fiancee, Luo-Han (Lorene Ren) and the nurse, Yu-Xi (Lorene Ren). However, it’s apparent that Luo-Han is much more gentle and feminine than the plucky Yu-Xi. There’s also heaps of chemistry between Lorene and Kingone in the scene where she sings for him in the dark. I’m really hopeful for this series but trying to keep my anticipation low as I’ve been burnt by SETTV for so many times.
Rounding up the cast are Nita Lei, Sean Lee, William Liao, Angela Lee and Katie Chen. Even though Nita Lei have yet to appear in the long trailer, she’s actually the donor recipient of Luo-Han’s heart. Based on characters’ description, it seems that Sean Lee will be playing as Yu-Xi’s boyfriend and that may complicate the potential romance between the main OTP. Katie Chen will be playing as Kingone Wang’s younger step-sister who seems to have a strong brother-complex and have a crush on him. Angela Lee will be the best friend of Lorene Ren’s nurse character. William Liao will be playing as Kingone Wang’s good friend since college and also his partner in business. On a side note, I really like how Lorene Ren is styled in the press conference, this girl is so pretty!
It was reported that earlier this week, Kingone Wang accidentally injured his side face by the store display box while filming. Fortunately, the bulky display box didn’t really hit him straight on the eye, it was a close call and his injury may be more serious if that really happens. The staff and cast members were all in a panic state when the accident happened as it was all of a sudden. Lorene Ren even tended to his injury on spot. I hope that he’ll recover from the injury soon. It reminds me that Phoebe Yuan also sprained her finger during the filming of Love Cheque Charge (幸福兌換劵) but she had to continue with the filming as SETTV adapts the live-shooting system. With the hectic schedules of live-shooting, I hope the filming crew will be more careful and take better care of themselves in the future.
