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.

Sandra Ma and Zhou Dong Yu clash in Qi Yue and An Sheng

A new movie just started production a few days ago! I’m very interested in this film because I adore the two leading ladies and two, they will be reversing their roles. Sandra Ma who got noticed for being the rebellious bar girl in The Left Ear, will be playing a quiet, well-mannered, and law-abiding citizen (Qi Yue) while Zhou Dong Yu, known for her petite and soft features, will be taking on the role of an uninhibited, unrestrained rule breaker (An Sheng). I hope this setup works for them and not against the two. Qi Yue and An Sheng (七月与安生) is a youth novel written by An Ni Bao Bei. I also love that the title is about them, even if they are destined to fall in love with the same boy (KRAPPPP KRAPPP!). The two characters meet when they are thirteen and experience all the highs and lows of adolescence and adulthood before embracing the value of life, love, and friendship.
