Cruel Romance 锦绣缘·华丽冒险

Was hooked on Cruel Romance recently which explained my absence from my blog recently, also because I have nothing much to post. This is the synopsis from Dramawiki:

Adapted from a Republican-era novel called "The Fate of Jinxiu", Cruel Romance tells the story of Rong Jinxiu (Chen Qiao En), a country girl who travels to Shanghai in order to discover why her entire family was killed. Along the way, she meets triad leader Zuo Zhen (Huang Xiao Ming), and after a series of accidents and misunderstandings, the two fall in love. Also vying for Jinxiu's attention is businessman Xiang Yingdong, a businessman and close friend of Zuo Zhen. Ever protective of his woman, however, Zuo Zhen refuses to let other men even come close to Jinxiu – which ultimately pays off when a villainous Japanese man tries to finish off Jinxiu and her remaining family members.

Have you seen this drama before?
I like the lead actor Huang Xiao Ming in the show, he is so cool and handsome, but don't you think that he looks like Louis Koo. See the two photos below. I suspect...

I watched part of one episode before at my mother's house when they were watching it. The girl actress is from Taiwan whereas the guy actor you like is from China, right?

I have not watched this show but that Huang Xiao Ming is much better looking than Louis Koo plus he has so much muscles more than Louis.

Nope, nothing like Louis Koo. Both are cool in their own rights though.

I don't think I will watch this drama hahaha. It sounds like Taiwanese drama plot...

I agree with Anay TM, Huang Xiao Ming is much better looking than Louis Koo.
1. Taller
2. Younger
3. More well-built

I watched this drama only a few episodes. I kind of liking it. Too bad I couldn't follow all the episodes.

I think it is a very nice drama, especially it has a very good looking actor like Huang Xioa Ming. I envy Angela Baby so much, Hahaha!

Wah!!! This Yannie so clever to find the comparison charts for the 2 actors. I didn't even know their ages and heights.
