Never Gone (2018)

 Never Gone Chinese drama adaptation Xin Yiwu
Never Gone: So You Are Still Here 原来你还在这里 is a 36-episode Chinese drama adapted from a popular novel by Xin Yiwu 辛夷坞. The movie adaptation starred visual couple Crystal Liu and Kris Wu while the drama stars Yang ZiShan and Elvis Han

The story follows the leads from their schooldays until adulthood, and I'm glad they got Li Lan Di and Hu XianXu to play the younger counterparts because as much as I find Yang ZiShan beautiful, it may be overkill for her to play a student whens she's in her thirties. The theme seems to revolve around second chances, which I'm seeing more and more of in dramas.

Synopsis from ChineseDrama.Info:
Su Yun Jin (Yang Zi Shan) and Cheng Zheng (Elvis Han) have known each other since high school. Cheng Zheng is attracted to Su Yun Jin, but he doesn't know how to express it well and often renders Yun Jin unsure about whether to laugh or cry. Although Yun Jin starts to develop feelings for Cheng Zheng, she knows that their personalities and family background are vastly different, so she purposely avoids Cheng Zheng's advancements. 

After getting into college, Cheng Zheng transfers into the same school as Yun Jin and continues to pursue her. They finally get together but the pressures from life after graduation cause a strain in their relationship. Yun Jin throws herself into work while Cheng Zheng is frustrated about her lack of time for him. Misunderstandings pile up and the two fall further apart until Su Yun Jin breaks up with Cheng Zheng. Will they be able to find each other again?

Tan Jianci (Cao Pi) and Elvis Han (Sima Yi)
Oof, Elvis Han seems to be playing the lovestruck puppy again, that is until he breaks the walls put up by the heroine. I sense an angsty road ahead. I'm not quite ready for another Siege in Fog though I'm comforted by the thought that this author doesn't seem to revel in tragedy as much as Fei Wo Si Cun. Meanwhile, Elvis Han adorably reunites with Tan Jianci in this. They played Sima Yi and Cao Pi in Secret of the Three Kingdoms

The three couple pairings include Yang ZiShan and Elvis Han, Li ChengBin and Su Qing, Lyric Lan YingYing and Tan JianCi.

Release Date: November 6, 2018 Youku

  1. Was not expecting this to be a drama. I enjoyed watching the movie although I had mixed thoughts / feelings about it. IDK if I should watch this or not. I saw Elvis Han in Siege in Fog.
