Looking for a mature drama that seamlessly combines action, comedy, romance, and tears? To Be a Better Man, starring Sun Honglei, Jiang Ying Shu, and EXO's Lay, is exactly what you need, and you can now watch it online on DramaFever!
Sun Honglei (The Warring States) stars in a sumptuous romantic drama about a man whose tragedy forces him to confront the past he left behind. Lu Yuan (Sun Honglei) has worked tirelessly to build a career as a celebrity chef in America, but the journey from the streets to magazine covers has led others to believe the master cook is reckless and arrogant, with some even likening him to the devil. And all that happens to be true, except around the friend he loves. But when that friend is killed in a tragic car accident, Lu Yuan returns home and finds himself face-to-face with people he never wanted to see again, while also getting entangled with Jiang Lai (critically-acclaimed actress Shu Ying “Maggie” Jiang), an old classmate’s sister, and Gan Jing (veteran performer Che Xiao), an ex who has now re-entered the picture. Can the master chef resolve the problems of his past, or will all his hard work abroad just fade away like the aroma of his cooking? Adding to the drama are Jiang Haokun (Calling For Love alum David Wang), the old classmate who is Lai’s older brother, and Xiao Cai (EXO member and Exo Next Door star Yi Xing “Lay” Zhang), the apprentice who is never willing to leave Lu Yuan’s side.
