Brought to us by DMG Entertainment, If Paris Downcast 如若巴黎不快乐 is a 48-episode Chinese TV series starring Zhang Han (Classic of Mountains and Seas) and Kan Qing Zi (Sparrow). Zhang Han is one of the producers as well.
It tells a story about a woman who makes the wrong choices for love and ends up serving time in prison because of it. She chooses to start anew in an attempt to get her life back on track and along the way, she meets a man also tormented by his past.
I’m beginning to understand why no one is in a good mood but at least they find each other paving the way for a budding romance. The drama is adapted from a novel of the same name by Bai Jin Hu 白槿湖 and it took the production team two years just to get the screenplay ready.
After four months of filming in various locations in China like Suzhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai, the cast and crew made their final stop in France this March and even huddled together for a touristy picture. The show will explore scenic locations that include the Eiffel Tower, Seine River and Monet’s Garden.
Release Date: September 23, 2018 Mango TV
