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.

Angelo, and Tang Yixin.  This drama seems to be following the pattern of some of Tangren’s older productions in adapting fantasy stories from Liao Zhai (Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio).  Costuming is not bad but I really hope they look better in action…

More stills below the cut. Continue reading
