However low-key the opening ceremonies were when filming began last month, it's gone all out stateside complete with a traditional lion dance and the entire cast dressed to the nines. The venue was also plastered in an auspicious red and the block letters In New York 在紐約 TV Series Opening Ceremony.

After working on various period pieces in the past three years with dramas like Legend of Chusen to Sparrow, Li Yi Feng returns to the modern day to play a Chinese American lawyer. He crosses paths Jiang Shu Ying who plays an aspiring designer in New York. 

Are there any New Yorkers here? I'm the worst at identifying landmarks, but I'm guessing they're currently somewhere touristy. The opening ceremony was held yesterday, November 9, at 10:00am and it was attended by Li Yi Feng (Animal World), Jiang Shu Ying (Mr. Right), Jiang Meng Jie (Legends of Monkey King), George Hu (Lightning) and many other members of the cast and crew.

  1. Hi Anne,
    The shots are located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I'm not sure if they are by the water near one of the parks or deck at the Wythe Hotel.
    FYI: Picts 1 & 2, Empire state on the left hand side with Chrysler building on the right, waterfront is East River park.

    1. Hi Judy! Thanks for the info.. How're you? are you from NYC by any chance? :)
