Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, many in the entertainment industry have donated to hospitals and relief efforts (list here) in China, but as the virus goes global, some are also donating abroad. Actress-producer Yang Mi’s Jaywalk Studio and actor-director-producer Ning Hao’s Dirty Monkeys Studio have just donated 10 PAPR kits, 500 protective suits, and 500 protective glasses to Spain. This is on top of a previous donation by the two in collaboration with Wu Jing, Xu Zheng, Chen Guofu, and Yang Tianzhen, who donated 2790 protective suits and 10 PAPR kits to Japan.
Yang Mi and Jaywalk Studios have also donated 1.3 million RMB to the Han Hong Charity, the One Charity, and a Wuhan hospital to fight the coronavirus, ~2000 protective suits to two different hospitals, 28 PAPR kits to a Wuhan hospital, and about 2 million RMB worth of material to four other hospitals in the Hubei province.
Jaywalk, the company co-founded by Yang Mi that propelled artists like Dilraba, Gao Weiguang, Zhang Binbin, and Zhang Yunlong to fame, has had major expansions in its management departments lately. Their newest drama features a full set of young actors from the company, including mostly unfamiliar names with the exception of a few who participated in Produce Camp 2019.
The drama, I Remember That Boy 我曾记得那男孩, is a high-school drama based on the book of the same names. Here are the cast’s initial character posters. The last time Jaywalk did this was Micro Times, and although the drama was a flop, most of the leads became famous. Who’ll be the next Jaywalk breakout star?
