This set of screencaps of Wan Qian sniffling in Lost in 1949 is so cute, I want to give her a big hug. She looks like she came out of an oil painting.
The series has a really slow, low-stakes plot and I ended up quitting a few episodes through, but started rewatching after I saw these screencaps. Wan Qian nails her character, a timid, simple woman who wants to avoid trouble, but at the same time wants to help her deceased husband’s cause. She doesn’t have big visions of the future or speak in slogans, but just wants to do what she can to help those around her. Chen Kun’s characters were a bit exaggerated earlier on but both have grown on me. Plus, the three leads now have great chemistry, and now I’m struggling between which Qiao brother I ship more with Wan Qian’s character.
