undisclosed project – 835 films. –> i believe this is DGSD movie version
Thanks! I’ve added them. It looks like Fan Xinman just got the movie rights to DGSD last summer/fall, so I think the 835 films ones will be separate since they bulk brought rights to several movies.
Also found a couple more dramas in pre-production and added them.
