It was filmed way back in 2014 and was actually Zhou Dongyu’s first time in a Chinese drama. To put it in the most diplomatic terms, Zhou Dongyu is my least favorite character in Sparrow but she must possess some serious acting chops to bag a best actress award in the Golden Horse Awards this year.
The plot sounds intriguing in a tear out your heart kind of gut-wrenching affair as it tells the story of a young girl from a poor family who ends up becoming entangled into the complicated lives of a wealthy clan. She falls deeply in love with a man, igniting a convoluted series of deception, betrayals and love triangles or squares, which hopefully concludes in a happy ending.
Release Date: January 4, 2016 on Zhejiang TV (eng subs on Viki).
