Li Lan Di and Hu Xian Xu lead rookie actors in Never Gone drama version

Never Gone (So You’re Still Here, 原来你还在这里) is based on the novel written by Xin Yi Wu. A pure and entangling love story that extends through the years and comes to a temporary end when social status and money throw a wedge in their budding love. Unlike other dramas where the main leading actors play the youths and the adults, the crew has decided to use fresh-faced rookie actors to play the younger versions, which is always a plus for me! But one thing…this is one gloomy-looking group of young adults…. Lol….

Synopsis from Wiki: Su Yunjin and Cheng Zheng meet in high school. Su Yunjin is a transfer student from a struggling family, while rich heir Cheng Zheng is the popular star student. Cheng Zheng falls in love with Su Yunjin and pursues her through college, even when they study and live in different cities. Su Yunjin is worried about the difference in their economic status, though this doesn’t worry Cheng Zheng. She decides to give it a chance and the two move in together after graduation. Two years pass in bliss; however, the issue of money drives a wedge between them, as Su Yunjin refuses to take Cheng Zheng’s financial help for her mother’s operation, and Cheng Zheng is angered when she goes instead to her ex for help. The two break up, and Cheng Zheng moves to America to help with his family’s company.

After some time passes, Su Yunjin realizes she truly loves Cheng Zheng and for the first time, she is the one to seek out Cheng Zheng rather than the other way around.

    I agree with you, Kappy. These young adults do look very serious and gloomy.
    I have a question, did the adult version of the leads change names or their stills are not out yet?

      We only had stills of the kids and posters of the adults (Elvis Han and Yang Zi Shan’s posters were posted in the previous post).

    I’ve read the novel but totally not my cup of tea. I kinda remember the story. I wont say anything to avoid spoiler. But gonna give this one a try since i like the male lead.

    I hope drama version would be better.. not that I didn’t liked movie but it’s just something didn’t felt right with acting..

    Anyway am glad they use rookies as younger version always a good thing plus these rookies let their acting known!

    Is it me or the younger version hero reminds me of Won Bin from Man from nowhere
