Luo Yun Xi and Wu Qian reunite in modern drama Light Chaser Rescue

A lot of reunions in dramaland lately huh? Light Chaser Rescue (追光者) reunites two actors, Luo Yun Xi and Wu Qian, who played the younger OTP version in My Sunshine (older played by Wallace Chung and Tang Yan) back in 2015. I adore these two but the topic of the drama feels like it has been down many times before, especially this year. Our male lead plays a lawyer who arrives at Xichuan after it was devastated by an earthquake in search of his younger sister. He meets many rescue workers including an old “rival” in our female lead. He’s impressed with her medical skills and her selfless spirit. Along the way, he also meets with many interesting characters, all of them undergoing the same monstrous training by their rescue team leader, becoming closer and stronger, together.

Wu Qian climbs up the ladder of justice in Black Lighthouse with Yang Le

Ohhh. This this such a different look and feel that I haven’t seen before from Wu Qian and it’s nice! The hair is a little bit angular for me but hopefully, it doesn’t distract from her performance. Black Lighthouse (黑色灯塔) features our heroine as a newly graduate who gets accepted to be a trainee at courthouse. She gets to witness the legal battles between the prosecutors and the defense lawyers day after day and is armed with commitment and integrity to the right thing; she hopes to become a great judge to serve the people.

The trailer is quite dark. Airing 10/21.
