Qiao Xin and Ma Si Chao hope to warm you up in a Winter Night

Synopsis from viki: Zheng Da Qian (Qiao Xin) is a young woman who works at an advertising company. Although she seems happy, independent, strong-minded, and carefree, she actually has low self-esteem and is wracked with worries. She comes from a smaller Northeastern town, but has been trying to make it in the big city. But when she suffers a setback in her professional life – and another blow in her love life – she finds herself hankering for home. When she receives a relocation package, however, her luck takes a turn. And when she is caught in a freak magnetic storm, things start getting strange…

She is suddenly reunited with a man she once felt affection for: Mu Zi Li (Ma Si Chao), now the owner of a small startup company. Mu Zi Li, like Zheng Da Qian, seems to most observers to be a confident and outgoing young man. But, like her, deep inside he is quite different. The duo starts to realize that the storm may have shifted time for them, somehow. But if there is a way back to the “present” for one of them, should they take it – or would it be better to stay in the world of the past?

The Bond (乔家的儿女) is an urban drama adapted from the novel written by Wei Xi. Bai Yu plays older brother to Mao Xiao Tong, Song Zu Er, Zhang Wan Yi, and Zhou Yi Ran.

I see a few familiar faces from the The Story of Ming Lan (same production company, Daylight Entertainment). The spineless, dimpled father, the straightforward first wife, and one of the sisters too!
