Starring Simon Gong Jun (龚俊) and Bridgette Qiao Xin (乔欣), psychological suspense romance Dream Garden <沉睡花园> premiered on December 13 through Hunan TV and Mango TV. With mental health discussions on the rise, Dream Garden offers new perspectives as the leads dissect complex feelings of others and their own.
Dream Garden tells a story of growing love and respect between popular relationship coach Xiao Xiao (Qiao Xin) and cold professional psychologist Lin Shen (Gong Jun). A confident expert on romance, Xiao Xiao takes pride in how she makes meaningful differences on peoples’ lives. However, the professional Lin Shen does not believe so, and he is not afraid to tell her that on national television Butting heads since their encounter, neither wanted to see each other again until fate had its own mind, and decided Xiao Xiao to become an assistant to Lin Shen. Despite their differences, they make a compatible pair in dealing with various cases and eventually grow to have romantic feelings that they would not dare to admit.
Dubbed the “male version” of The Psychologist <女心理师> led by Yang Zi (杨紫) and Jing Boran ( 井柏然), there are expectations Dream Garden will also cover similar topics through diverse cases. Comparisons between the two dramas are anticipated as they share the same themes. Comparisons aside, hopefully greater attention will be on mental health issues and the value of communication.
With a total of 16 episodes, Dream Garden will air every Monday and Tuesday.
