The upcoming mainland drama The Lady & The Liar will take us back to 1930s Shanghai, as we follow Jiang Xin (Tang Yan) on her quest to be reunited with her family. Originally the heiress of a well-off family, Jiang Xin went missing for years. When she is discovered and on the cusp of returning home, she loses her memory in a freak accident, and her identity is stolen by female thief Du Xiaohan (Yang Rong).
Xiaohan then takes on Jiang Xin’s life, while Jiang Xin falls into the hands of mafia boss Bai Zhengji (Hawick Lau), who conceals her past in order to keep her by his side. In the meantime, Jiang Xin’s previous lover, the blind Sheng Jiewen (Tony Yang), desperately searches for her.
The Lady & The Liar is currently still filming in Shanghai, though it’s expected to start airing sometime this year. Check out a deluge of gorgeous stills behind the cut, like this one of the liar Du Xiaohan. How do you think she compares to the lady?
Hawick Lau plays Bai Zhengji, who was forced out on the streets at the tender age of five after the early death of his mother. He was then discovered by his long-lost father, who brought him into the fold of the mafia. Growing up with no knowledge of family warmth, Bai Zhengji finds himself changing after he meets the kind-hearted Jiang Xin, whom he wants to keep with him no matter what.
Tony Yang plays Sheng Jiewen, a tender and passionate young man who is unfortunately blind. This raises the question, “Why is he pictured on a motorcycle below?”
