Jin Dong and Ma Yi Li’s The First Half of My Life to air

Dang, no place for young kids in this drama! An adult show about middle-aged women and their struggles in society. In The First Half of My Life (我的前半生), Ma Yi Li plays a married housewife in her mid thirties and her life turns upside down when her husband wants a divorce. She doesn’t have any work experience and to top it off, she also has a young kid to support, what will life be like for her? In comes Jin Dong‘s character, a perfect gentleman, a businessman who recently return to Shanghai to manage his business. He’s a busy man with a quality lifestyle and after meeting her, he’s thrown into her messy life. Both of their lives have been peaceful and calm, how will a fateful meeting challenge and reward them in the latter half of their lives?

I waited to publish this post, hoping the press conference (today!) would drop a trailer! But nothing! Na-da! WHAA? It’s airing next week!

    Thank you for your synopsis Kappy! I searched for the drama synopsis for 5 minutes before, but saw the autobiography written by the last emperor Pu Yi instead. I guess that autobio just happens to have the same title.
    This drama has a number of reliable actresses who rarely appear in recent dramas. Yuan Quan, Mei Ting, Vivian Wu, Ma Yili. I hope this will be a good production with a reasonable plot.
