I’ve had my eye on Road to Rebirth (2021) for awhile now, only it wasn’t called that, it was called Romance With the Star (2020) and seemed like yet another modern cdrama about a celebrity and common person falling in love. It stars Jerry Jia (Pushing Hands (2019)) as the celebrity, and Ivy Chen (Love is in the Air (2018)) becomes his personal maid. The teaser has a fair amount of drama and angst in it, so it looks to be comic lite. Hopefully, this will be English subbed as the trailer is from Yoyo’s channel, so you can catch this airing on March 17, 2021, 7 days a week 😲.
Synopsis: A story between celebrity and a neighborhood girl who becomes his manager. Because of her cousin, Sun Xia Ai is swayed into accepting the job to become a personal maid for hotshot celebrity Su Xing. After spending day after day together, Sun Xiao Ai discovers a side of Su Xing that nobody knows – he helps children with their schooling, reaches out to sick fans and would rather take a hit in his own reputation in order to protect his younger sister. Sun Xiao Ai finds herself falling for Su Xing and chooses to stay by his side even as his star has fallen out of the limelight. Together, Su Xing and his new manager Xiao Ai decide to make a comeback in the industry. (Source; ChineseDrama.info)(Source: mydramalist.com)
Celebrities falling in love with an ordinary person is a pretty common genre, look at You’re Beautiful, Soot Sanaeha, Full House, Touch Your Heart, Payakorn Sorn Ruk and so on. However, this cdrama also has the hero recovering from some sort of injury that lands him in a wheelchair, so that is a little different. The teaser is all over the place really, and I don’t understand what’s going on, but because of my love for all the dramas above, I’ll probably will try this out.
