This is Not What I Expected, starring Takeshi Kaneshiro and Zhou Dongyu, is an upcoming Chinese romantic comedy movie.
The trailer suggests that the tension in their relationship partially stems from their class difference — Lu Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro) is a wealthy hotel manager, while Sheng Nan (Zhou Dongyu) is a poorer chef.
I like how the teaser opens up with dialogue overlaying the image of the two chairs, and how eventually we see Kaneshiro pulling Dongyu’s chair closer to him. However, I’m not exactly feeling their chemistry right now. I also feel like Dongyu is beginning to be typecast into the same tsundere roles (Soulmate, Nail Clipper Romance, and now this).
This is Not What I Expected premieres on April 28.
