Are you looking for a Chinese romantic comedy drama that will make your heart flutter and make you say “sana all“? Count Your Lucky Stars starring Jerry Yan, Shen Yue, and Miles Wei is a highly recommended C-drama for you, bes!
Let me give you 5 reasons why Count Your Lucky Stars is a drama that you should not miss:
1. Catchy Storyline
Count Your Lucky Stars is a 2020 Chinese drama series; it is a comical and romantic story about a well-known editor-in -chief and a very fortunate man named Lu Xingcheng, and an ordinary fashion designer who often experiences bad luck named Tong Xiaoyou. Their fate was switched instantly due to an accidental kiss whereas Tong Xiaoyou became famous and Lu Xingcheng became the unlucky one.
Watch and witness how they eventually fell in love with each other.
2. Jerry Yan as the lead actor
Our childhood crush is back!
After playing the role of Dao Ming Si in the hit Taiwanese drama series Meteor Garden, Jerry Yan is really back to make our hearts flutter as Lu Xingcheng.
Nothing changed, he is still charming as if he’s not aging at all. Jerry Yan is really my childhood crush way back Meteor Garden days, I was only an elementary student back then (fangirling as its finest lol!) He is still the same when I first saw him in his drama in 2001. Given his charismatic visual, he is such a good actor as well. He personifies the quote “age is just a number”.
3. Unexpected chemistry of Jerry Yan and Shen Yue
The Dao Ming Si in 2001 meets the Dong Shancai in 2018! Many fans of Meteor Garden were thrilled when they heard about the pairing of Jerry Yan and Shen Yue.
This drama will not disappoint you. Despite of their age gap, their chemistry is so good! Kilig to the highest level swear! You’ll gonna love how Xiaoyou helped Xingcheng to pursue his dream again as a fashion designer, how she became an instrument to cure the deepest pain in Xingcheng’s heart and how they achieved their dreams together with their love for each other.
The cliffhanger kiss of Xingcheng in the hospital, Drunk love confession of Tong Xiaoyou, The piggyback ride of Lu Xingcheng to Xiaoyou, the cute moments when Xiaoyou want to kiss Xingcheng but he always refuses it, the sweet forehead kiss. These were my favorite kilig scenes. There’s a lot but I think you may just want to watch it by yourself, bes! To experience the kilig feels as well.
This is the new love team you will surely love!
4. Second Male Lead Syndrome
Oh well, second male lead syndrome over and over again!
Try not to fall in love with Miles Wei’s character as Lu Yanzhi. He’s so good looking, I also see some Hu Yi Tian vibes in him. He is kind and most of all, he likes Xiaoyou even if his feelings can’t be reciprocated.
(This might spoil you so read at your own risk 😊)
So, there was a scene, Yanzhi confessing his feelings to Xiaoyou while she is sleeping on the couch.
“There are some things that i can only say when you’re asleep. Xiaoyou, I like you. I’ve liked you for a very very long time. Do you like me too?.”
Painful right? But there’s more painful than this, when he finally have the chance to confess his feelings towards Xiaoyou, he asked Xiaoyou to lend him 10 seconds of her time, he hugged her and did not say anything instead he counted. Xiaoyou did not held him back.
After 10 seconds, Yanzhi said:
“I already know the answer, can we still be friends?”
“In the future, i will keep this distance with you. I won’t make things difficult for you. But i still want to tell you, no matter what happens, as long as you look back, I’ll be here”.
Pighati! But I like how he confessed his feelings in his special way, and how he accepted the fact that they will never be more than friends. It hurts but I commend his bravery!

Because what we love is alive, is pure and will thrive.”-Lu Yanzhi
