Has it really been almost five months since My Star Bride aired its last episode?
For local viewers, we had to bid goodbye to the loveable Fang Cao, played by Chantalle Ng, and the reticent but sweet Zhong Shijie, played by Xu Bin, way back in February. But for viewers in China, they’re only just discovering the series, thanks to this viral video clip on Douyin.
In an Instagram post yesterday (July 14), Chantalle shared that her friends in China had messaged her recently, telling her that My Star Bride is “starting to trend there”.
And soon after Chantalle's post, a number of Chinese netizens also left comments, confirming that the drama is all the rage in China now.
As it turns out, it all started from this viral Douyin clip, posted by an account that’s known for editing really sweet moments from different drama series that catch their fancy.
The very first clip featuring My Star Bride was posted just three days ago, but has already garnered 177,000 likes and 12,000 comments.
