Liu Ye plays an accomplished pilot who is an oldboy in a literal sense of the word. He is a middle-aged man with no adult responsibilities until a son he never knew existed comes knocking on his doors, along with a one-of-a-kind teacher played by Ariel Lin.
There’s definitely a lot to be anticipated from this new couple pairing though it’s hard for me to envision them together. Ariel Lin is forever young in my mind while Liu Ye strikes me as having a much older vibe even though in reality, they’re only
five four years apart. I suppose narratively speaking, it’s perfectly casted given their respective roles as a 40-something man and a school teacher.
