Once a youth icon himself, Alec Su revisits the popular themes of youths and high school once more in his directorial debut, The Left Ear 左耳. First glimpses of the mostly new male cast of Ou Hao, Yang Yang, Hu Xia, and Duan Bowen were released this week.
Fun fact: Jiang Jinfu and Lin Gengxin were the cover models for the book before going into acting. How do you think the new cast compare?
Is this whole confession-written-on-black-boards pattern really common in China? b/c in the US, that like almost never happens…
The pattern also appears in 匆匆那年
I don’t know of anyone who’s done it, but I also don’t know many Chinese high schoolers. I doubt so, though, since you’ll probably get yelled at by your teacher if you did that and get a talking to about the problems with dating in school. Most things that happen in a film/drama are improbably in general (for example, how often do you fall in the shower to be rescued by your true love? ).
I heard good reviews about this novel before and the trailer looks interesting. It really seem that the youth-theme is becoming the trend nowadays.
