Bai Lu, Jin Chen, Yang Rong, Qiao Xin cast in Ming Dynasty female ensemble comedy

Based on this oddly PS’ed poster, I’m guessing Yu Zheng will try to sell on historical aesthetics once more.

Song of Youth 玉楼春 is Yu Zheng’s latest period drama, a comedy starring Bai Lu, Jin Chen, Yang Rong, Huang Xinyao, Zheng Qiuhong, Lamuyangzi, Qiao Xin, and Wen Zhengrong. Their male love interests will be Wang Yizhe, Hao Lei, Chang Long, Zhou Lu, Zhu Zhiling, and Zheng Kai. According to Yu Zheng, the drama’s main focus will be fast-paced humor, but will include elements of traditional arts like pipa, guqin, dance, flower arrangement, the art of and fragrances and the like. It’ll also include actors from acting competition Real Actor.

This is Yu Zheng’s first attempt at comedy since Cosmetology High in 2014, which was not that well received (although idarklight enjoyed it).

In Youth cast at the amusement park

Zhang Yunlong, Liu Ruilin, and Huang Mengying all graduated from the same class (like twenty people who took every class together) at Beijing Film, while Daisi and Qiao Xin are a year apart from Central Drama.  Zhang, Liu, Huang, and Daisi all work for Yang Mi. 

Young, good-looking, and mostly already bff’s since so many of them went to the same college and works at the same company and have been in every other drama with each other, the cast of In Youth 趁我们还年轻 – Zhang Yunlong, Qiao Xin, Liu Ruilin, Daisy, Huang Mengying, and Huang Bojun are so adorable together.   The trailer was imo the cutest looking of the modern  trailer smorgasbord released last month.

Here’s a photoset of them at the amusement park, and a video of them being dorks (that makes me want to ship every combination of them) :
