Looks like the new trend in Mainland entertainment is following a group of friends from their high school/college days and well into their full-grown adult years. Check out Ruby’s The Way We Were for some Taiwanese flavor. Back in Time (That Year, Time Flew) is adapted from a novel with the same name. Eddie Peng plays the male lead, Chen Xun, a handsome man who excels at many things, and finds his quiet classmate, Fang Hui (Ni Ni), fascinating and mysterious. He throws himself at her, using many ways to attract her attention. What will happen to them then? And later?
Digging further into the news, there’s actually an internet drama version of the novels. You can watch it here on youtube featuring Yang Le and Viva Wang.
Photos from Press Conference:
You gotta love a man who looks equally handsome and dazzling in a simple white shirt and black pants.
Don’t forget Ni Ni, she’s also into simple colors. Oh wait, everyone must have called and arranged this.
What are you channeling to the camera, Eddie?
They look utterly cute together.
Yes, we know you guys rock it, in plain fashion or fancy photoshoots.
Not sure what “skill” Eddie is showing Ni Ni here. Perhaps, the hovering technique?
- The wordless trailer got me. Sometimes you don’t need to use words to deliver. Just a nudge here and there by the leads. Actions, folks! Actions! 😉
- If Eddie were staring at me like that during class, I might have to quit my daytime job as the paper passer.
