Qiyi’s synopsis: After Lu Yuan Zhi fell apart with his teacher and suffered oppression from his seniors, he left Beiping and headed to Shanghai. With his hard work, he earned recognition in Shanghai. When war erupted in Beiping, Lu Yuan Zhi headed back and swore not to make cheongsams for the Japanese. He used his skills to become one of the greatest costume designers of China.
Interesting topic and I expect to see a lot of pretty cheongsam/qipao!
Formerly called Love and Lost, To Love (最初的相遇,最后的别离) is an upcoming suspenseful romance drama starring Lin Geng Xin, Gai Yue Xi, and Du Chun. Adapted from the novel written by Shu Yi.

During his mission, he meets and becomes intimate with a sassy owner of a cafe, our female lead. Their close relationship triggers jealousy from a close female friend but she isn’t jealous for very long because she, too, is murdered. And the blame is pinned on him. Now we have two murder mysteries. Du Chun is the head in charge of investigating our lovely couple.
Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.
