Everything is perfect in the trailer for the tragically beautiful drama Winter Begonia 鬓边不是海棠红. Yin Zheng stars as a Peking Opera star in Republican Era China while Huang Xiaoming plays his soulmate in this bromance drama about their love for each other, for a dying art, and for the world around them.

Plus, Zhang Yunlei and Yang Jiulang are like the definition of an irl bromance that’s as close you can get to romantic love without actually being one.
Huang Xiaoming plays a former journalist who disappears after publishing fake news and returns a changed man after three years. He is employed by a top PR firm, and makes a name for himself in the field of crisis communication. Tan Zhuo, Zhang Bo and Cai Wenjing costar.
