Tong Yao as Zhu Yizhen

Zhu Zhu as Lan Xinjie, Lin Nansheng’s first love / crush

  1. What’s with so many republican period dramas this year ? Haha. I think I’ll put this on my list to check since it features serious actors. Hope the storyline is good, complex and thought provoking, tho’ the synopsis looks the typical plot.
