Formerly called Love and Lost, To Love (最初的相遇,最后的别离) is an upcoming suspenseful romance drama starring Lin Geng Xin, Gai Yue Xi, and Du Chun. Adapted from the novel written by Shu Yi. Our hero is now a businessman but he used to work as a anti-narcotics policeman. He decides to go undercover again to find the cause of death of a close friend. During his mission, he meets and becomes intimate with a sassy owner of a cafe, our female lead. Their close relationship triggers jealousy from a close female friend but she isn’t jealous for very long because she, too, is murdered. And the blame is pinned on him. Now we have two murder mysteries. Du Chun is the head in charge of investigating our lovely couple.
Mark Chao, Kenny Lin Gengxin and William Feng Shaofeng reprise their roles as the crime-solving trio from Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon in this sequel, directed by Tsui Hark (who is quickly becoming my favorite Chinese director). Joining them are Sandra Ma (“Oh My General”) and Ethan Ruan (“Legend of Fuyao”) in this mystery involving magicians, sorcery and an Empress eager for power. It’s a fun, summer flick with laughs and plenty of action.
Of course they were gonna split up the already short game promo into two parts. Anyhoo, Zhao Li Ying meets up with Lin Geng Xin to promote their game Swordsman Love together. They shot a short film and the first half is revealed today. The last part is scheduled to be shown on November 3rd, which coincides with Li Ying’s Eternal Wave movie release.
