To Love (formerly Love and Lost) stars Lin Gengxin as a former special forces member and narcotics officer, whose entire life changes when he meets coffee shop owner Ji Xiao’ou (Gai Yuexi). [Extended Synopsis]
The drama is directed by Wen Taming and written by Zhou Yuanjiao (Why Get Married), and is tentatively scheduled for a late 2020 broadcast.
The dubbing is actually pretty solid (but that may be because the Last English-dubbed video I’ve been watching was this) . Animated feature White Snake , a loose prequel to popular legend The Legend of the White Snake, opens in LA on November 15th and in select U.S. theaters on Nov. 29. There are two additional dubbed clips here and here.
