Once their confusion is cleared that he isn't really her blind date and she isn't the artiste mooching from his charity, the two make a deal where he will teach her how to act and dress like the rich in exchange for her paying him.
There’s quite a lot of Mike He to go around on-screen with his new drama Go, Single Lady having premiered last night on Zhejiang Network (it’s undubbed!) following the ratings hit melodrama Loving, Never Forgetting which starred Jerry Yan and Tong Li Ya. GLS is a pre-filmed drama having been shelved for just under a year, coming from a joint collaborative effort between Taiwan and China. I have a particular fonding for these collaborations since I really have enjoyed the ones which I have seen (I have seen much though).
GLS is a rom-com about Mike who plays a rich chaebol heir who falls into a dire financial situation who his family enterprise goes bankrupt overnight. Now without the financial support that he grew up having, he finds himself doing all sorts of odd jobs. He comes across a nouveau riche pig farmer’s daughter played by Ady An who is trying desperately to break into the upper class (hence the tentative Chinese title 上流俗女 which translates to Upper-Class Common Girl). They have clashing personalities but they work together to achieve their dreams of breaking into upper class and in the process, they end up falling for each other. It’s typical rom-com drama but I like this and having seen the trailer and BTS footage, Mike and Ady are hitting it with the chemistry which is much needed for a rom-com.
