Li Yi Feng, Maggie Jiang, George Hu, and Jiang Meng Jie begin filming In New York

Well, filming started a while back but they are holding the opening ceremony today In New York (also the drama title, pun intended!) Beside Li Yi Feng and Maggie Jiang as the leads, we have George Hu and Jiang Meng Jie as well. With In New York (在纽约), Li Yi Feng finally returns to modern dramaland after three years in ancient land. He will be playing a full-of-character lawyer who was raised in New York and lives strictly to uphold justice for the lower-class people. Then one day he meets a fashion designer who came all the way across the world with dreams of becoming the top dog in the said industry. It’s a story of hopeful dreams and bitter reality slaps (my own words, lol) that today’s youths can relate to. Jiang Meng Jie plays assistant and best friend to our heroine and George Hu will round out the character playing a gentleman in New York. While other cast members already missed the food back home, George is reminiscing of his past childhood being raised in New York and all.

Drama productions release new stills to celebrate the annual meeting of two (tragic) lovers, the tale of Zhi Nu and Niu Lang’s forbidden love as the cowherd and weaver girl in Chinese mythology. I’m sure we have at least watched one adaptation of this story.

You might drown in the stills so I focus mostly on ancient dramas….for now. Lol.
