The Way We Were (2018)

The Way We Were premieres May 14, 2018
The Way We Were 归去来 is a 50-episode drama revolving around Chinese students studying abroad in the US. It is meant to give a glimpse into the problems relevant to the new generation, and I'm thinking that the drama must carry some weight as it has been selected as one of the national films to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Chinese economic reform.

It is led by real life couple Tang Yan and Luo Jin who play a couple that go their separate ways because of their differences in ideals. Tang Yan's Xiao Qing aspires to be a righteous prosecutor just like her father while Luo Jin's Shu Che hails from a political family. Xiao Qing's father begins an investigation on Shu Che's father.

A clear conflict is setup for the main couple between right and wrong, love and family. The cast also shares that they have never cried so much in a drama before. The statement would have me instinctively shying away if it were anyone else, but it's my favorite Princess Weiyoung couple back together again. It also stars Amelie XuYu Ji WeiWang Tian Chen and Ma Cheng Cheng

The show was originally slated to air in June until it made a sudden announcement just a week before premiere date to indicate that it is airing in May. In times where dramas often get pushed back, it's a nice surprise to be able to watch this a little earlier than expected. 

Release Date: May 14, 2018 Beijing TV, Dragon TV

  1. Excited to see Tang Yan and Luo Jin onscreen again but please don't tell me they are they supposed to be playing undergraduates because no. If they are Masters students that is more believable.

  2. ohh i didnt know these 2 has a drama again together, i love them as a couple ever since Weiyoung, they do look a bit older for college students tho lol unless they re doing PhD lol

  3. Loved Lui Jin in The Princess Weiyoung...
    the acting was excellent. It was my first subtitled move I decided to try to watch in the USA and fell in love with all the characters. Well written series. Now I am interested in watching more movies with Lui Jin, Van ess and Tiffany ...
