Never Gone (Chinese Drama Review & Summary)


  • Genre: Modern Romance, Nostalgia, Youth, Adulthood, Break-up. Reconciliation
  • Date Released: November 2018
  • Origin: China; Based on a film of the same title
  • CDrama: 36 Episodes
  • Viki – subbed in English

Cast:

  • Elvis Han as Cheng Zheng
  • Yang Zi Shan as Su Yun Jin
  • Hu Xian Xu as young Cheng Zheng
  • Landi Li as young Su Yun Jin

This drama is based on a film starring Kris Wu.  The film had a crappy ending but if you search on Youtube another ending for the film can be found and it was a happy one.

Episode 1

I have to say, I have not seen any of Elvis Han’s work before but isn’t he fit?!!!  Anyway, I like the beginning episode.  The younger selves of the characters are super-imposed in the modern day life, which made the younger days the more sweeter and the modern time the more intriguing.

Anyway, Yun Jin is now a very able office director and can take everything under her stride including a jealous wife of her boss, who was barking up the work tree.

It seemed that she got it on with Cheng Zheng but somehow they broke up.  But he is back, stalking her and he is a high-powered businessman.

They first met in high school.  Though they belonged to the same school, it was when she was putting books on shelves that he fell in love with her.

Yun Jin comes from a poor family, her father was bedridden.  With his incessant cough, it was hard for Jin to study.

She set her heart into studying science but her grade is atrocious.  As she had promised her father that she will study science, she was trying her hardest to study for it despite her homeroom teacher telling her that she was not suitable for science.

It was luck that she found a part-time job in a bookshop which enabled her to find time to study and get away from the worried from home.

At present time, her old schoolmates are getting married and she had been invited.

Episode 2

Cheng Zheng seemed to show his feelings for her by insulting her, calling her stupid when they were still in high school.  But at the same time, he was so attentive towards her.

In the end, she asked him if he could tutor her in math.

She went to the wedding with her best friend from high school, who is now a doctor.  She was expecting to see Cheng Zheng but he was no show.

I must admit this drama defeated me.  There are so many blah blah blah which of course are in Chinese.  You actually have to understand the language to enjoy it fully.  So subtitles are needed.  I have to confess that mere actions are not enough.

So please Viki or Netflix, have this drama sub.  It starts two great Chinese actors and popular among the international and mainstream audience.

  • Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance, Drama, Political
  • Release Date 19 January 2019
  • Origin: China
  • CDrama: 63 Episodes

Cast:

  • Wu Jin Yan as Li Hao Lan
  • Mao Zi Jun as Ying Yi Ren
  • Nie Yuan as Li Bu Wei
  • Karina Hai as Princess Ya of Zhao
  • Tong Meng Shi as Ying Sheng
  • Ning Jing as Lady Zhao

This drama is slated to start this Saturday and I reckon it would be full of intrigues and machinations and counter-machinations as what most of Wu Ji Yan’s historical dramas tend to be.

Update:  Good news!  Apparently, Viki has commissioned this drama so we will have an English translation fairly shortly.  Viva Viki!

 

A Little Thing Called First Love

A Little Thing Called First Love

A Little Thing Called First Love is apparently going to star Lai Kuan Lin as the male lead and it was being touted that the female lead may possibly be Shen Yue.

It was only the male lead who is more or less a sure thing.

This drama, which is based on a Thai movie is called Crazy  Little thing called Love will be the startup vehicle for the 17-year-old Lai Kuan Lin in the drama world.

I do hope that Shen Yue gets the part.
