We have a new modern cdrama out that I’m excited about, Count Your Lucky Stars stars Jerry Yan (Loving, Never Forgetting) and Shen Yue (A Love So Beautiful (2017)). Count Your Lucky Stars started airing August 3 and is a romantic comedy about a couple exchanging luck that is also an age gap relationship. This is a Mango Tv production and they usually have English subs on their videos on youtube, so it should be English subbed.
Synopsis: Lu Xingcheng was used to having the world at his feet until he lost everything in an instant. Tong Xiaoyou used to be eternally jinxed until the day she became famous overnight. CHIC editor Lu Xingcheng has a haughty personality and a sharp tongue. In the fashion world, he is a legendary figure and famous for being lucky. Tong Xiaoyou is an unknown designer who is unlucky in everything that she does. An accident causes their lucks to be interchanged and their lives take a drastic turn. As Tong Xiaoyou gets to know Lu Xingcheng, she gradually learns about his hidden past and discovers a man who yearns for family despite his arrogant facade. Tong Xiaoyou wants to help her idol return to his former glory, but his egotistic tendencies can be hard to deal with. (Source: ChineseDrama.info)(Source: mydramalist.com)
Shen Yue is 23 years old and Jerry Yan is 43 so there is a 20 year age gap here, but honestly Jerry Yan could easily pass for his thirties. If you watched the teaser and the bts, they actually look good together, much to my surprise. The premise of this is very similar to 2018’s kdrama Lovely Horribly which was about a couple that exchanged good fortune and misfortune. I watched part of that kdrama, enjoyed some parts, but the couple lacked chemistry to the extreme. Hopefully that won’t be a problem with this drama.
