The first trailer for modern romance drama Never Gone has been released, and stars Yang Zishan (Red Rose) and Han Dongjun (Wuxin: The Monster Killer 2) as a young couple whose sweet romance through high school and university crumbles after getting hit by the harsh realities of life outside the school yard. Talented young actors Li Landi (of cult hit My Huckleberry Friends) and Hu Xianxu (Nirvana in Fire II) play the younger counterparts.
Li Chengbin (Operation Proposal) plays second male lead Shen Ju’an, husband of Cheng Zheng’s (Han Dongjun) older cousin Zhang Yue (Lan Yingying) and Su Yunjin’s ex-boyfriend.
Su Qing (I almost didn’t recognise here) costars as Mo Yuhua, Su Yunjin’s best friend who has a one-sided love for playboy Zhou Ziyi, played by Tan Jianci (The Advisors Alliance). He’s aware of Yuhua’s affections, but chooses to do nothing about it (judging from the trailer, he may reciprocate her feelings after all).
Directed by Lin Yufen (Ten Miles Peach Blossoms, Lost Love in Times), the 36 episode has yet to secure an air date.
Based on Mobao Feibao’s novel of the same name, Go Go Squid! 蜜汁炖鱿鱼 stars Yang Zi (Ode to Joy 2) as Tong Nian, a cover singer of Japanese songs and a genius IT programming student. Li Xian (Tientsin Mystic) plays Han Shangyan, a legendary professional gamer with a high IQ and EQ who doesn’t take an interest to girls.
Tong Nian falls head over heels in love with Han Shangyan the night he walks into the internet cafe she is working at. The clumsy yet cute Tong Nian is on a mission to win over Han Shangyan’s affections, and eventually thaws his cold heart.
The fluffy romance drama will be produced by Huace/Croton Media’s Gcoo Entertainment (Boss & Me, My Sunshine, Love O2O), and is scheduled for 30 episodes.
