Both strong actors returning to dramaland in upcoming modern drama, Oldboy (老男孩). I just laughed so hard thinking about Liu Ye’s face when he saw the drama title. HA. Liu Ye‘s last drama was All Quiet in Peking in 2014 and Ariel Lin‘s last drama was in 2013 with Prince of Lan Ling. He will put on a pilot uniform for the role ~
Adapted from Chen Zhong Shi’s novel of the same name, White Deer Plain (白鹿原) was also made into a film in 2012. The drama adaptation stars many heavy weight veterans such as Zhang Jia Yi, Qin Hai Lu, Liu Pei Qi, and along with several youthful faces such as Li Qin, Deng Lun, and Zhai Tian Lin. The novel is considered one of many Chinese literary treasures, diving into the generational wars and clashes of evolving beliefs and values held esteemed in the small village known as White Deer Village, focusing on two big families – the Bai and the Lu.
