Anticipated Fall Tw-drama: Mr. Right Wanted starring Sonia Sui & Christopher Lee
Now that we’re transitioning into the fall season, it’s time to take a look at the upcoming fall tw-dramas! If you may recall, last fall season (2013), I only watched one tw-drama, that being The Pursuit of Happiness. I totally adored the lead actress, Sonia Sui, although I felt that the drama started to falter towards the end. Well, one year later, Sonia Sui is BACK with her latest fall drama, Mr. Right Wanted (Alternate titles: Notice from a Bachelorette and Marriage Wanted), which is set to start airing on GTV/TTV in November 2014.
Sonia is starring as the heroine again, this time as Hai Ning, an editor-turned-writer who wants to write a book about the online dating and marriage seeking. She figures that the best way to write the book is to experience online dating herself–her profile:
“Female, 32 years old. Looking for men who are upright, kind and willing to communicate. Hoping to be friends first before marriage.”

She encounters all kinds of quirky and interesting men during her online dating. Hai Ning realizes that she has a lot to learn about love and marriage.
When I first heard about this drama back in 2013, I was scared that it would turn out to be another one of those stories about a heroine in her 30’s that is desperate for marriage. But after I read the synopsis, I feel much more assured that the drama will not be taking that route, since Hai Ning is not a woman who’s on a mission to get married. Instead the drama is more about her adventures with online dating, and the various men that she encounters along the way. Of course, there will be more male side characters than usual since Hai Ning is online dating. The male supporting cast includes Jerry Huang (In Time With You) and Hans Zhong. And guess what, Christopher Lee (A Good Wife) is the male lead!! OMGG!! I was so impressed by his acting chops in A Good Wife! It seems like Chris Lee’s character will be Hai Ning’s main candidate in her dating; whether or not that will lead to something more is still unknown.
