I’m seriously considering watching this! GAHHHHH. I don’t do modern dramas usually…. What to do?! My last drama was Legend of Fei and oh boy…how disappointed I was at the final production. I need a good LY’s drama!
See You Again (再见那一天) is an upcoming drama with a heavier topic. Our male lead played by Li Guang Jie accidentally kills someone while on the mission to kill/hurt his sister’s assaulter and is then sentenced to life imprisonment. The only friend who comes to visit him is police officer played by Hu Jun and because of his good behavior, he’s released from prison early. Life during and after prison proves hard to a man with a tainted past but our male lead is lucky and finds himself working for a funeral shop owner, who also has a checkered past. A little light and humanity shine on our group of friends.
