Synopsis from chinesedrama.info
On New Year's Day in the year 1949, Qiao Zhicai (Chen Kun) was plotting his escape from prison, but was surprised when he is suddenly set free. Carrying only a briefcase, he searches for the man behind his predicament. 

On the train, he accidentally bumps into Huang Liwen (Wan Qian) who is returning home to visit the grave of her late husband. Without either of them realizing it, they take each other's briefcase by mistake. 

Huang Liwen is a rookie spy whose briefcase carries an important transmitter that is meant to be used by Communist operatives. In her search for the missing transmitter, she becomes acquainted with the kind, gentle, honest and intelligent Qiao Zhicai, not knowing that his younger brother Qiao Lijie plays a crucial role to the success of the mission.

This drama marks Chen Kun's return to the small screen after almost 10 years of doing only movies.  This, along with the upcoming drama, The Rise of the Phoenixes will hopefully be the first few of many more TV projects for this great actor. 

Chen Kun is known to be picky about the roles and movies he chooses and it shows.  He has done a variety of movies that branched out into the international scene and have received quite a bit of attention internationally from the Golden Globes to the Cannes Film Festival.

It is reported that Chen Kun was so drawn to the remarkable story of Lost in 1949 that he chose it as his first one in almost a decade.  I am excited to watch this as he will definitely lend a certain panache into this drama for sure. 

His leading lady Wan Qian has been nothing short of impressive in recent roles like Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy and Secret of the Three KingdomsThe cast also includes Elvira Cai Wenjing (A Seven-Faced Man), Zhang Xiaochen (All Out of Love), Hai YItian (City of Desire) and Yin Zhusheng (Heroes of the North). David Wang YaoQing, Zhao WenXuan, Liao Fan and Wang JingChun guest star. 

On an unrelated notes, don't you think Chen Kun looks like Leon Lai in some angles? :)
