I’m sure all of you remember Sun Li from her amazing performance as Zhen Huan in The Legend of Zhen Huan. Well, she’s back again, this time in an upcoming modern c-drama “Hot Mom”. LOL at the title…but the drama is literally about a ‘hot mom’. Sun Li is playing the heroine, Xia Bing, who is a flamboyant and adventurous woman in her late 20’s. She doesn’t want to get married or have kids yet, but those plans are shattered when she discovers she is pregnant.
Take a look at the trailer first:
I think the trailer is a lot of fun and it definitely shows the heroine’s crazy and fun side. Obviously Hot Mom will be more of a humorous drama, showing how Xia Bing as a first-time mother learns to raise a child. The longer trailer versions show some other details–her encounters with her ex, her funny moments with her husband-to-be, and her dilemma between her job and her child.
Also, as you can see, Sun Li is still rocking her short haircut, this time with a perm that looks..crimped..and she still manages to pull it off. She is also wearing the most loud and daring outfits in the trailer….and she looks great. HOW DOES SHE DO IT!?!?!? O____O Anyways I think it will be interesting to see how Sun Li tackles this role in comparison to her role as Zhen Huan. How will Sun Li show the different layers and nuances of her new character Xia Bing? Also MING DAO will be starring as her ex-boyfriend (darn it, I wish he could star as her husband!) and omg, even in just the trailer alone, he is already exuding his usual charm. I so want to see how Sun Li and Ming Dao’s chemistry is!!!
^ MING DAO!!!
At this point it is hard to tell whether Hot Mom will be that typical rom-com that glosses over everything with the drama stereotypes, eye candy, and high fashion. *cough* SOP QUEEN, SOP QUEEN II, TINY TIMES *cough* (I am SO NOT BITTER. 😛 ) I’m really hoping that Hot Mom will go beyond the drama tropes and give us something new. Sun Li’s character, Xia Bing is a lot of fun and a hoot to watch but hopefully the drama will also show us her more serious side and also address the more serious issues of motherhood. All in all, I will be checking out this drama out of curiosity and my love of Sun Li and Ming Dao. Not a big fan of dramas with babies/kids but who knows, it might turn out to be good! 😀 *crosses fingers*
^ Sun Li = gorgeous.
