Qi Wei Sings for New Drama “Still Lala”

Qi Wei and David Wang for Still Lala

Since its publication in 2007, the novel Du Lala’s Promotion (杜拉拉升职记) has spawned two movies, two TV dramas, one stage drama, and one webdrama. Now the story is headed back to television, with a new TV drama titled Still Lala (我是杜拉拉) and starring Qi Wei and David Wang (Wang Yaoqing).

Still Lala is based on the fourth and final book in the Du Lala series and serves as the third part in the Du Lala TV series, following Wang Luodan‘s A Story of Lala’s Promotion (杜拉拉升职记) and Jiao Junyan‘s Lala’s Shining Days (杜拉拉之似水年华). The titular Du Lala is now in her 30s and enjoying life as an HR manager and a happily married wife. However, a new female coworker threatens to turn her life upside down.

Qi Wei sings the song’s ending theme, “Forgot to Remember” (忘了去记得), which is composed by JJ Lin and penned by award-winning writer Orson Zhang (Zhang Haochen). The MV, which is embedded below, is not all that interesting, but it’s always nice to listen to Qi Wei’s vocals and JJ Lin’s music.

Still Lala began airing on April 16 and is being broadcast on Jiangsu TV and online at Tencent. You can also watch the episodes with subs at Viki.
