The Best Partner 精英律师 stars Jin Dong (Mr. Right) as Luo Bin, an arrogant top lawyer who only cares about winning cases. Lan Yingying (Never Gone) plays Dai Xi, a hot-blooded rookie lawyer who will have a bickering non-romantic(?) relationship with the male lead.
The first teaser for modern workplace drama Against the Light 逆光 has been released, and stars Lan Yingying (Surgeons) as Bai Xining, the former heiress of a jewellery corporation who returns to China to find out the truth about her mother’s fall from grace.
Who says heroes must be lonely?

So opens Gu Long’s favorite novel of his, Happy Heroes 欢乐英雄. The first TV adaptation of novel, titled Growing Pains of Swordsmen, has begun filming and will star Bai Ke, Lan Yingying, Sun Yizhou, and Yang Le as a quartet of happy heroes in their various escapades. The series is directed Shang Jing and “written by” of My Own Swordsman, so I expect it might be similar in tone. The original listed writer was Ning Caishen of My Own Swordsman but has been changed to Shang Jing after Ning Caishen got banned for doing drugs, but I suspect the script may still be based off his script. The two’s tone should work well with the novel, which is episodic and an attempt by Gu Long to focus on the more human and mundane stories of the wuxia world.
