Ni Ni and Deng Lun begin filming for new Republican Time-Travel drama Night Wanderer

Night Wanderer (夜旅人) is adapted from the novel written by Zhao Xi Zhi and has confirmed the leading couple in Ni Ni and Deng Lun with their released posters. The novel follows two individuals – our heroine is from the year 2015 and she’s famous female forensic doctor, returning home from a murder scene and witnessing the corridor lights flicker. On the same night but in 1937, our hero – a lawyer in Shanghai also returns home when the lights go out. The time and space of these two people are connected by a lamp. He’s described as gentle, old-fashioned, and righteous, while she’s described as cool, calm, and courageous. The first time they meet, he’s in no hurry as he helps her to the hospital with a black umbrella. The second time they meet, he has become her tenant, holding a tenant contract from 1937. Lol. Their love transcends time and space, and once it explodes, it’s eternal.

That is the novel excerpt, but when I checked the drama synopsis on baidu, it sounds different. This may be another case where some plots/descriptions are changed to accommodate drama making.

COVID-19 Anthology Cdrama – Together, with Ten Different Stories and Cast Members

I did not expect that in my lifetime there would be a global pandemic happening. It is – still is, very tough. Working in a major hospital, I was very fortunate to have a job through Covid but there were definitely some selfish moments where I just wanted to stay home and stay away from the hospital, where protocols and procedures keep changing every single day as we learned more things about the virus. Colleagues falling sick and hospital dispatching some of us to different areas, sometimes unrelated to our job; some smaller hospitals were sending my co-workers to work at the morgue. >.<”

I don’t know what to expect from these dramas but maybe all we need is a little thing called hope to keep us moving forward. Having this blog and some of you guys to chat with has always been the anchor of my sanity. So thank-you for that! Stay healthy, stay informed, stay connected, and stay calm! We are in this together.
