Go Go Squid 2: DT & Appledog’s Time Is The Older-Woman Romance You Just Have To See

With the phenomenal success of the 2019 C-Drama Go Go Squid comes its spin-off, Go Go Squid 2: DT & Appledog’s Time starring Hu Yi Tian and Li Yitong.


C-Drama fans, you’re in for a treat! The highly anticipated Go Go Squid 2: DT & Appledog’s Time, which focuses this time on eSports champion and beloved character DT/Wubai and legendary female CTF (Capture The Flag) player Appledog/Ai Qing, began its broadcast last February 4 at Jiangsu Satellite, iQiyi VIP, and WeTV VIP platforms. It is slated to have 38 episodes. Actor Hu Yi Tian (A Love So Beautiful, You Complete Me) reprises his role as DT while actress Li Yitong (Begonia Rouge, The Legend of the Condor Heroes) replaces Wang Zhen Er as Appledog.




Its predecessor Go Go Squid was the proper introduction to the eSports world and to the characters we’ve come to love from the main leads Han Shangyan (Li Xian) and Tong Nian (Yang Zi) that extends to the interesting and charming supporting characters.

It was hinted in the show that he looks up to Team Solo’s lone female player-turned-Team SP team manager Ai Qing (better known as her player name Appledog). But there’s something more brewing there behind his admiration for her.
