Here to Heart is an upcoming romance drama starring Janine Chang (The Advisors Alliance) and Zhang Han (Wolf Warrior 2), who replaced original male lead Huang Xiaoming after he backed out to film The Years You Were Late.
Janine Chang plays Wen Nuan, the first love who returns from overseas after a decade, only to find out the new job she has landed means she’ll be working under ex-boyfriend Zhan Nanxian, played by Zhang Han. Despite the messy breakup, Wen Nuan and Zhan Nanxian work together to help the company overcome stiff competition and rid the industry of firms that employ dirty tactics to gain market share.
Jing Chao (Campus Beauty) plays Zhu Linlu, the kind and selfless second male lead who has an unrequited love for Wen Nuan. Zhang Jiani (Ode to Gallantry) plays the second female lead whose only purpose is to create misunderstandings for the OTP, and Zhou Qiqi (Rose Faith) plays Wen Nuan’s older sister who also loves Zhan Nanxian.
The original was all dog-blood (crazy, over-the-top tropes), and the main characters were pretty unlikable – I’ll probably watch the premiere just to see how they’ve changed the plot. The 36 episode drama is directed by Huang Tianren (Attention, Love!), and written by newbies Zhao Weina (Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017) and Xie Xiaomi.
