I Will Never Let You Go (2019)

I Will Never Let You Go
I Will Never Let You Go 小女花不弃 is a 51-episode Chinese drama series adapted from the novel Xiaonv Hua Buqi.  Although the announcement of its release was very low key and sudden, it looks to be a promising series... mainly because of Ariel Lin who has finally returned to doing period dramas again after 5 years. (Already in her mid-thirties, she hasn't aged at all!)

  1. I like the posters! I really like both the leads. Nice to see a reverse age gap where the woman is older for once although their big age gap is not obvious at all. I'm so glad this is "only" 51 episodes" which is far more reasonable than all these super long dramas recently

  2. I'm planning on watching this for Viann Zhang. She is so gorgeous. Every time I see her I'd be like She would play the perfect White hair maiden!!

    Unfortunately I don't think her story line will be a happy one.

  3. OMG, been waiting for Ariel Lin to act again. She's an amazing actress. Plus, Vin Zhang Binbin as lead? I'm already on board.

  4. Watched 6 eps last night, I felt this story lack depth and lots of loophole compared to previous periodic dramas i watched. It's disappointed Ariel wastes time filming. With her fame and acting, she could pick a better drama to film

    1. I agree she (AND VINN TOO) could've picked better roles and dramas together. It's kind of a regret, esp. she played these type of roles so many times already. At least she still a slaying ninja in those roles though. Almost nobody can play it like her anyways.

      But overall, it is sitll thousand times better than the turtle pace Ming Lan airing now. I have nothing to watch atm at all and this drama is the one quite satisfying at the time being. A lot of times it's not always about the depth or storyline too, as long as the actors can play out their roles correctly. Or if the director can carry out his work correctly then everything will always be fine. Ashes of Love would be best example, tons of loopholes but people love it because of the character interactions. This is the same situation with IWNLYG. You can get the best story, best CGI, background, best actress/actor, etc but if the character interactions are failing, then everything falls flatly boring.

  5. This storyline is so mediocre Minglan drama is much better it has depth and able to see the characters grow.

  6. I'm enjoying this drama so much more than I expected..I love Ariel's witty and bright character. I love the pairing of Vin and Ariel, especially with Vin's double identity and personality that throws Ariel's character in a loop. Can't wait to watch more =)
