More gorgeous stills from Hua Qian’gu

Skinship in the snow!

I really hope the camera work for Zhao Liying and Wallace Huo’s upcoming drama Hua Qian’gu is somewhat close to how lovely the stills seem, although the more I read about the plot synopsis, the more I dislike the story. Also, if the drama goes with the book’s original ending, you should prepare for a tragedy.
