Synopsis
Spoiler


The 25 years old Le Tong Tong (乐彤彤) has two best friends Lala (拉拉) and Bamei (八妹). Three days ago, the conversation between the bride-to-be Le Tong Tong and her fiancé was recorded by the office’s hidden camera. The video about their breakup immediately was spread in the office.

Then came the shocking news that the young and beautiful newcomer in the Advertising department will replace Tong Tong as the bride. The humiliated Tong Tong tells a lie that she already has a new sweetheart. Everyone in the office, except Tong Tong’s two best friends Lala and Bamei, is full of expectations to what will unfold. Tong Tong comes up with the “Blind Dating Plan” overnight and vows to find a husband who is N times better than her ex. She will even give up all chances for promotion and will spend all her vacations and evenings in six months on blind dates. The story of the single princess and blind dates unfolds.

单身公主相亲记explores the love lives of single mature women. It combines the hot topics of blind dates and the love lives of modern single people. The female lead 乐彤彤 is a “common, kind-hearted, and reserved girl nextdoor”. The male lead 纪凡 is a playboy outwardly yet warm-hearted inside.

COOL!!! Another Jimmy Lin modern drama! :thumbsup (My Lucky Star being the first one that I've seen)

Has anyone read the book?? The storyline sounds decent...and drama adaptions from books are usually very good...

Jimmy Lin in “Single Princess”; No time for another baby

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

translation by l_coco @ http://asianfanatics.net
source : sina

Hunan TV launched its 2010 tv drama series in a press conference for its “Single Princess and Blind Dates” in Shanghai on 2010-05-26. The director Chen Ming Zhang, the producers, the leads Jimmy Lin, Dylan Kuo, Zhao Liang, and Hong Xiao Ling attended. Jimmy Lin admitted that he has to receive his son Xiao Xiao Zhi’s photo daily before he goes to bed. There is already too much pressure from just 1 kid. He has no plans for another one.

“Single Princess and Blind Dates” is adapted from an online novel and is the feature in Hunan TV self-produced 2010 tv series. It’s about the current hot topics of blind dates and old maids. The director Chen Ming Zhang other series “Fated to Love You” and “My Lucky Star” both got high tv ratings. “Single Princess” is a light comedy about old maids. He hopes the new series will be a winner in Chinese tv ratings. In the preview we can see the light-hearted drama fits Hunan TV’s characteristics.

The male lead Jimmy Lin has not appeared in another modern series since “My Lucky Star”. He is working with director Chen again and said the script is very attractive. His character is a graduate film student who works as an intern in a tv station. He’s kind-hearted yet naïve and has romantic relationships with Zhao Liang and Le Tong Tong. The series is being filmed in Shanghai. Jimmy said he misses his son and asks that his photos be sent to him daily. When asked if he wants to have another baby he laughed and said one baby is more than enough. He has no time for another one.

Hunan TV’s Zhao Liang plays the old maid Le Tong Tong. Director Chen said this character is just like Zhao Liang’s. This is her first acting experience and it is grueling. Director Chen said working with her was exhausting in the beginning. He scolded her many times that brought her to tears. She has since improved tremendously.

Besides Jimmy Lin and Zhao Liang, Dylan Kuo also starred in the series. He dropped his nice guy image and plays the angelic/devilish CEO Fang Yan who is tangled up in a love triangle with Jimmy Lin and Zhao Liang.

Jimmy Lin: has to notify wife first before bed scenes; No plans to have more babies

Hunan TV idol series “Single Princess and Blind Dates” is filming in Shanghai. Director Chen Ming Zhang, Jimmy Lin, Dylan Kuo, and Zhao Liang attended the press conference. Jimmy Lin and Zhao Liang have many kissing scenes. He said he’s not afraid that his wife will get jealous. “If there are bed scenes then I’ll first tell her.” When asked if he plans to have more babies, he laughed, “I am not Nicholas Tse. There are no plans now.”

Jimmy Lin plays the male lead Chi Van, who is a playboy outwardly yet kind-hearted inside. He and Dylan Kuo will have a love triangle with Zhao Liang. The series is directed by Taiwan golden director Chen Ming Zhang, who directed “Fated To Love You” and “My Lucky Star”. Chen said when he first read the script he knew the character Chi Van is written for Jimmy. He joked, “I am so sick of it, so many years and he still looks the same. He’s a father now and is more mature than when he filmed My Lucky Star.” Jimmy and Zhao Liang have many kissing scenes. When asked if he had to report to his wife first he laughed and said, “Acting is my job. Kissing scenes are unavoidable. If there are bed scenes I’ll let her know first.”

As one of the wealthier actors, Jimmy works even harder after he became a dad. He’ll hold a concert in the latter half of the year and film a movie. His son Xiao Xiao Zhil is taken care of by his family. He misses him but when asked if he plans to have more babies he joked, “I am not Nicholas Tse. There are no plans now.”

Anyone know where the rest of the series is? I'm done with Episode 12 and there's no Episode 13 or onwards to be found anywhere. English sub wise I gave up, but luckily I understand Chinese so I can make out more or less what the characters are saying.

Does anyone know when Jimmy Lin will officially release his new EP? I read some press releases and articles from the "Single Princesses & Blind Dates" press conference that Jimmy said his EP (which would contain his new songs in this drama) would be released in October but it's November already and there's no sign of this EP.

Anyone know anything? I'm really liking his songs in this drama, esp "Color", and I don't want to settle with the low quality rips that people are passing around online.

Thanks

And a thank you to the person who posted the TV Sohu website to view all episodes, although it's a bit slow. Better than having to rely on that one Youube channel.

Jimmy just finished filming the 2nd movie of this yr and will start filming the remake of My Girl. so i guess the EP will have to wait till next yr. Rainbow Sweetheart (the remake of My Girl) is a taiwanese idol series. I'll start a new thread in the taiwanese series forum.

Hello thanks for sharing but i cant seem to download it ): do you have another download link for this song?

this is the best version of Color i have so far. see if this works.

Thanks to the person who informed me on Jimmy Lin's current schedule. Man, I really don't want to have to wait until 2011 to see that EP release. I'm really digging "Color", and even with the supposed best quality available right now, they're all audio rips from episodes where the song is played at length, meaning character dialogue overlaps and such. I wish we'd at least have a confirmed release date.

And I don't know how far some of you are faring on the drama itself, but I'm about done. MIGHT BE A SPOILER HERE SO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK (Highlight to read):

I finished Ep 29 already and I love how in the bloopers at the end, Jimmy accidentally calls Hong Xiao Ling "Ya Rou" at one point (her character from "My Lucky Star"). I was actually waiting on either Xiao Ling or Jimmy to mess up at one point since they worked on "My Lucky Star" for a long time back in 2006 and their characters interacted a lot, as opposed to them barely interacting in "Single Princesses & Blind Dates". If I'm not mistaken, I think that one scene where Carey shows up at Ji Fan's house to look for Li Xiao Yao is the only scene Xiao Ling and Jimmy had together. Haha Jimmy was bound to mess up (he NG's a lot).

Also I was wondering if someone could give me a basic idea of what happened at Tong Tong's company and the whole fiasco with Fang Yan's businessmen whatnot. Because I've been watching the drama without subtitles and the only part I'm misunderstanding is the crap that went down at Tong Tong's business. I know Fang Yan decided to close down the wedding planning agency but I don't get the shady business that went on behind the scenes. If someone could basically explain, I'd appreciate it.


Thanks
