First stills are out for upcoming youth drama 10 Years of Spring Wind Can’t Compare to You (春风十里，不如你), based on the novel Beijing, Beijing (北京，北京) written by Feng Tang (third of his trilogy “The Growth of all Things”). It features Zhou Dong Yu and Zhang Yi Shan in military training uniforms as they compete on the battle ground of love. He’s the little boy that would pull the her pigtails and perform annoying pranks just to get her attention. She likes him too but is too stubborn and prideful to admit. The drama is said to revisit our youthful days and revolutionary sentiments through the lives of this batch of modern kids.
Amazon reviews the novel, “In the 1990s, as China continues to embrace—and grapple with—the global market economy, Qiu Shui and his friends attend med school, an ambition that has more to do with getting out of the country than with actually becoming doctors. Following the exploits of a young student and his classmates, from drinking binges, sex, and playing video games all night to military training, homework, and college-age high jinks, Beijing, Beijing provides an inventive, hilarious, and incisive look into how a culture—and one man—struggle to reconcile their past with the changes brought by modern times. As the years pass and friends, family, and lovers move on, Qiu Shui confronts the loneliness and confusion that define his generation.”
I’m suddenly very interested to read this novel. It’s controversial writer Feng Tang’s first novel to be translated into English.
