Real life couple Tang Yan and Luo Jin reunites again for an upcoming modern drama Gui Qu Lai (归去来), described as youthful and emotional, with their fathers being at odds with each other. I think it’s based on a novel (memory failing). Will try to post the synopsis after work (12 hours later!). The story follows four students studying abroad, searching for intellect and love. Our male lead is in a relationship with another girl in the beginning before his father forces the love birds to separate, seeing how her family doesn’t benefit his side at all. Our female lead is a smart girl, pursuing a degree in law, unique in that she rises to the top based on her own efforts. The two students meet and fall in love but a crisis comes their way. The hero is involved in exposing their dads’ criminal activity and our heroine is caught in between as a witness. Ultimately, the culprit is revealed and there’s a heavy price to pay. Everyone grows up in the process, understanding humanity and the value of life, returning to the path of justice.
Directed by Liu Jiang (The Battle At Dawn, talking in the video below) and written by Gao Xuan (One Step Away) and Ren Bao Ru, shooting begins in July with an ambition of 50 episodes.
When asked why he could invite both Tang Yan and Luo Jin together, he said there were two reasons, one being no one else is as suitable as they are, two being this is such a good script, they couldn’t refuse.
