f(x) member Victoria Song has been cast alongside Taiwanese actor Peter Ho in a new Hunan TV drama called Beautiful Secret (美丽的秘密).

Victoria Song – also known as Song Qian – has been a busy lady recently. From juggling a film shoot for My New Sassy Girl with Cha Taehyun, to attending promotion events for designer labels, Victoria has made a name for herself as one of the most sought after actresses in both China and Korea.

Her latest project announcement is for a Chinese television drama called Beautiful Secret. Victoria will co-star next to popular Taiwanese actor Peter Ho in a story about an up-and-coming singer who becomes romantically entangled with her music producer.

Beautiful Secret is the sequel to the highly successful 2013 Hunan TV drama Shining Days (璀璨人生), which also starred Peter Ho. In Beautiful Secret, Victoria Song plays the role of a young woman who was abandoned by her mother as a child. When she grows older, she participates in a singing competition and quickly becomes an overnight sensation when she wins the contest. Peter Ho’s character notices Victoria’s natural music talent and decides to produce her into true superstar. But as their two characters work together, their feelings change, and the media starts to take notice of their budding romance.

Besides highlighting the challenges of being in a high profile romantic relationship, Beautiful Secret will also portray love rivalries, career rivalries, and the relationship between stepsisters. Described as an urban romantic drama, the drama is said to be produced to depict a stylish entertainment industry.

Marketing preparations for Beautiful Secret has already begun, and industry insiders are hoping that the show will achieve a similar TV rating success like Sunny Days.

Fans are already calling the show as “one of the most anticipated idol dramas in 2015″. Netizens have remarked that the combination of Peter Ho and Victoria Song will “most definitely have chemistry”.

Filming for Beautiful Secret will begin early next year, with an expected air date in mid-2015.
