What? Again??

No not again… Apparently, the highly anticipated teen series “Chit & Pi” which had been in the works  since last last year with plans for hitting the little screen summer of last year had so far lain dormant for about 15 months now and still in counting. In a recent  interview with Hong Ha Van (Chit from the series), the girl reveals that the series will finally return from hiatus this summer. And of course no specific date was given, so if they once again fail to deliver this summer, we can always bet on next summer, or next next summer, or next next next summer, right? What kind of twisted PR is this? =___o

The series, by FPT Media & VIMAX films, tells a bright & innocent story of 2 female classmates, nicknamed Chit and Pi, who after getting acquainted, immediately became best friends. Their lives get even more enmeshed in each other’s when the girls’ successful hook up plans for Chit’s single mother and Pi’s single father actually made them sisters living under the same roof. But as usual, things will be taking its toll when their personality  finally clash.  Would their plans be short lived? Will the funny Tang Nhat Tue & Thuy Top couple become an item? Will Dang Khoi’s hot brother, Nguyễn Đăng Nguyên, hook up with Pi? Will Chit end up with Canon? Will “Chit & Pi” become another target for nitpicky antis to unreasonably ridicule as with “Bo Tu 10a8“? I guess we will only have to wait and see.
