First Impression: What do you think of Never Gone with Elvis Han Dong Jun and Yang Zi Shan?

Han Dong Jun is back onscreen in modern garbs! Plus, he’s alongside the capable Yang Zi Shan in a plot that has been done over and over again; a pair of deeply in love young adults who were torn apart by social status and financial differences, yet their hearts remain with each other for years and the heroine finally decides to pursue the man she chased away years later. I hope their acting and chemistry will elevate the drama into something memorable.

New drama stills for Han Dong Jun’s Never Gone (So You’re Still Here)

Based on the novel written by Xin Yi Wu, Han Dong Jun and Yang Zi Shan are the leads for Never Gone (So You’re Still Here) drama version. You might recall the movie version with Kris Wu and Liu Yi Fei last year, about a pair of deeply in love young adults who were torn apart by social status and financial differences, yet their hearts remain with each other for years and the heroine finally decides to pursue the man she chased away. Separation-at-youth-and-meet-again seems to be the prevailing trend in dramas…. It’s been done to death. Lol.

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….

Han Dong Jun and Yang Zi Shan begin filming for Never Gone (So You’re Still Here)

Strong pairing! Han Dong Jun and Yang Zi Shan begin filming for Never Gone (So You’re Still Here) drama version of the novel written by Xin Yi Wu. You might recall the movie version with Kris Wu and Liu Yi Fei last year, about a pair of deeply in love young adults who were torn apart by social status and financial differences, yet their hearts remain with other for years and the heroine finally decides to pursue back the man she chased away. It’s not a deep subject and has been repeated many times, but what will sell this story is the acting, which I believe won’t be a problem.

Tang Yan and Shawn Dou’s See You Again wraps up filming after 113 days

Modern drama See You Again (时间都知道), adapted from Sui Hou Zhu’s novel, stars Tang Yan, Shawn Dou, and Yang Shuo has wrapped up filming after 113 days, including overseas scenes in London (last part of filming). The story is still confusing the hell out of me. Our 31-year-old heroine encountering an accident during a plane ride and is transported seemingly in a dream where she’s traveled back 10 years and is in college, where she meets her fiancé (Shawn) and begins courting him knowing their future together. In the long-running dream, she also tries to cure her ailing mother, guide her best friend on a better road, and finally find happiness with Shawn. However, he dies during an accident saving someone. Heart-broken, she decides to go forward in time by taking the same flight that causes the original plane accident. She wakes up and sees her husband safely by her side.

Do you understand this? WHUT? So she’s fighting with time and space, guided by love back to square 1/safety? *mind boggling*

Book fans, please clarify. >.<
