Lu Han and Wu Lei play a pair of gamers separated by a decade who end up meeting each other in a video game.
I’m super impressed by Lu Han’s acting in this trailer. His acting is so natural in every scene. He’s shown he can act previously in movies, but hasn’t really brought that to dramas (expected since dramas tend to have less directing and time to perfect every scene). The trailer and premise both look great and I hope it’s good. The drama co-stars Wu Lei, Dai Luwa, and Cecilia Boey and is airing on July 20th.
