As one of the youngest actors to star in a 100+ million film, Liu Haoran’s one of the most promising actors of his generation.

“He was already the best he could be, but I didn’t find the best in me until years later.”

Welcome to another installment in the recent surge in high school dramas, but with a better filter than the previous ones, and I believe a male lead who can actually act.   With You 最好的我们  stars Liu Haoren, Tan Songyun, and Wang Yuexin, and airs on April 8th on iQiyi.  Treasure this while you can, because  is probably the last low budget productions for Liu Haoren since he’s made his name in Chinatown Detective.
