I’m pretty sure that the drama gods have been sleeping all these years when Vic Zhou and Ariel Lin’s respective careers in the Taiwanese dramaland have been skyrocketing. Well, it doesn’t matter now that the movie gods were surely awake and decided to spoil us fans with lots of love by putting these two together in a project. But wait, there’s more! These movie gods are just beyond amazing that they got Bolin Chen to be the second male lead of the movie. HELP!
I know you may have seen so many news articles about this movie already but I still wanted to write about it because I can no longer hold my excitement! It was originally slated to be released next year but the official Weibo account of the film actually announced that it’s going to be out this November 11. So how can a fangirl like me not be excited, right?
It has already been tried and tested that any movie or drama that focuses on youth, school, and nostalgia would yield to definite success. This is why there’s no stopping the Chinese entertainment industry from creating movies/dramas with those themes. Another formula to success is putting a tried and tested pairing in that kind of theme and voila! We can have something like “Youth Never Returns” which has a high probability of box-office success given that big stars like Joe Chen and Zhang Han are headlining it.

It seems like it’s becoming a trend in the Chinese entertainment industry to remake some popular Hollywood films. I actually don’t mind watching such remakes especially when gorgeous ladies like Angelababy and Ni Ni are in it. These two have been busy promoting the Chinese remake of “Bride Wars” ever since the year started. These pretty women are now on the cover of Cosmopolitan China for its September issue shot by the famous celebrity photographer Chen Man.
