This screencap almost looks like an oil painting.
This set of screencaps of Wan Qian sniffling in Lost in 1949 is so cute, I want to give her a big hug. She looks like she came out of an oil painting.
The series has a really slow, low-stakes plot and I ended up quitting a few episodes through, but started rewatching after I saw these screencaps. Wan Qian nails her character, a timid, simple woman who wants to avoid trouble, but at the same time wants to help her deceased husband’s cause. She doesn’t have big visions of the future or speak in slogans, but just wants to do what she can to help those around her. Chen Kun’s characters were a bit exaggerated earlier on but both have grown on me. Plus, the three leads now have great chemistry, and now I’m struggling between which Qiao brother I ship more with Wan Qian’s character.
Chen Xiao with a moustache is my favourite type of Chen Xiao.
Du Juan (Wine War) plays an interior designer who believes in fairy tale romances, even though her own marriage is on the verge of falling apart. On a trip to Paris, she meets and falls head-over-heels in love with a violinist, played by Chen Xiao (Nothing Gold Can Stay).
Shadowing Your Heart 如影隨心 (lit.) is based on the eponymous novel by reporter and author An Dun, and tells of the romance between a talented violinist (Chen Xiao) and interior designer (Du Juan). The pair get married almost immediately after meeting each other, though they soon find out that a passionate romance isn’t enough to keep a marriage going.
