Promo Round-up: Only Side By Side With You

Only Side By Side With You tells of the love story between a fuerdai who spends her time designing drones (Bai Baihe) and an ex-soldier turned bar owner (William Chan) who is determined to find out the truth behind his expulsion from the army. The extended synopsis can be found here.

I only had eyes for the OTP while reading the original novel, but Qin Hailu’s (White Deer Plain) main antagonist An Ning has had my undivided attention since the release of the first trailer. Can’t blame me when she’s so charismatic. Li Xian (Tientsin Mystic) costars as the meddling second male lead, while Bai Bing (The Legend of Heavenly Tear) plays the heroine’s business partner.

The drama will be subbed on Viki.
