Xiu Jie Kai has been one busy man in 2015, with two dailies (Dear Mom, Bittersweet), a web series (Lost, me too) and one drama (Constellation Woman Series: Aries) all released in the same year. Not to mention he became a father! Now the question is will he still do his military service at the end of the year? It’s December already…
His latest, Thirty Something (我的30定律) will premiere on December 12 (on free to air channel TTV, then on EBC on Sundays), following To the dearest intruder. He will team up with Kimi Hsia this time, in a story about the insurance business. A bunch of 30 second teasers have been released already and this drama seems to be about the struggles working as insurance agents with of course some sort of romantic storyline.
Here’s the playlist to all the teasers. I’ve embedded a couple of my favourites. (Did anyone say dimples?!)
Xiu Jie Kai plays You Zi Jie, who is the boss (or mentor?) of Kimi Hsia’s character He Mei Liang. Mei Liang worked in medical equipment sales previously but changed jobs to be an insurance agent. Based on the teasers, she’s a rookie in this industry and will learn a lot from working with Zi Jie. Other cast members include Esther Liu Pin Yan and Samuel Koo Bin. Interestingly, Esther Liu’s character Fang Wen Hui is (was?) married to You Zi Jie? Or was she talking about her relationship with Samuel’s character? I couldn’t find more detailed character descriptions yet so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Here’re some photos from their press conference last week. I’m not sure about those glasses? She’s supposed to be approaching 30 years old in this drama so don’t make her a complete noob in the workplace!
