Ren Jia Lun and Bai Lu’s One and Only (Beautiful Bones) confirmed to air

One and Only (周生如故) is the ancient part of the novel One Life, One Reincarnation – Beautiful Bones (一生一世美人骨) written by Mo Bao Fei Bao starring Ren Jia Lun and Bai Lu. Beautiful bones here refer to the person’s inner beauty as opposed to beauty that is outside – on the skin. The drama will have two parts, one sets in the ancient times, and another in the modern world as both of our leads reincarnated a thousand years later. In their previous lives, their love story ended tragically, and when given a second chance in a new world, what will happen to them? Our male lead doesn’t have memories of the past life, but our female lead does retain the feelings and memories. Oy! She recognizes him the moment they meet again and will chase after him despite the changes and challenges ahead.

Find the translated novel at hui3r’s website. The novel is well-known for its poetic writing, so let’s hope the plot won’t suffer. I have been waiting for a good angst!

Series Review: Jiu Liu Overlord (Cdrama, 2020)
