YES!! Found myself another Zhang Han drama…although I’m a bit hesitant to watch this one since it’s part of the Meteor Shower franchise (meaning lots of whining from the female lead x.x”), but I’m willing to try it just to see Zhang Han!
Although it’s meant as a follow up to Meteor Shower and Meteor Shower 2, A Different Kind of Pretty Man doesn’t actually follow the same plot line. It only makes use of the character concepts and the recurring actor is Zhang Han (having played Murong Yun Hai in both 1 & 2 and now reprises the same role under a different character name, Gao Yuan Shu).

EDIT: I tried starting this drama…but aside from the draw of Zhang Han, my interest died about half way into Episode 01. I’m not sure what it is about the drama that is turning me off, although it’s a high chance that it’s the lead female.
If anyone has managed to watch the entire series, do let me know what you think.
