I was browsing Doremii's upcoming projects list to see if there was anything I should be keeping my eye on and found out that An Xiang (i.e. Dark Fragrance) is on their 'on-coming projects' list.
The reason for my obsessive excitement is simple - An Xiang's leading man is Huang Xiaoming, my biggest Mainland crush (together with Hu Ge and Yuan Hong, it's sort of a hormonal trinity of mine :P). But being Mainland, any of his dramas are freaking hard to find subbed.
Not to mention that even if not for HXM factor, the plot of this sounds so ridiculously my thing, it's insane: The story centers around Cheng Yuan (HXM), the fourth generation heir to the rich and powerful Cheng family based in Southeast Asia. After pursuing studies in the United States, Yuan is on his way back home to attend his father's funeral and to make plans for his own marriage, when he meets a couple of Chinese travelers. The man, Li Ke Jin, is wrongly arrested for possession of marijuana, and the woman, Wu Yue, pleads with Yuan to save him. Already deep in the chaos and conflicts of his family and the future of their empire following the death of his father, Yuan agrees under some conditions. He will help Wu Yue free Li Ke Jin if she helps him avoid marriage by pretending to be his girlfriend. However, as the two play the happy couple, Wu Yue becomes a target for the feuding family and two things are propelled into danger... their hearts and their lives.
I mean! Fake lovers who fall in love for real. Be still my heart!
If you are not convinced yet by my excitement, I dare you to defy the adorableness of this MV:
What with this, Hu Ge's Bitter Coffee, and Coming Lies (a drama where Dylan Kuo is a conman conned out of his heart by Terri Kwan and the subs for which I have been searching everywhere for years) all on their upcoming list, doremii is my favorite subbing group atm.
ETA: kycoo, weren't you watching this last year? *off to browse your LJ*
