DMG Entertainment presents Shanghai Picked Flowers 十里洋场拾年花, a Chinese drama set during the year 1910 in Old Shanghai. It follows an inconsequential paparazzi who becomes a big shot in the industry and his involvement with ten female celebrities whose glamorous lives are accompanied by a dark side.
Peter Sheng Yilun (A Lost Love in Times) headlines as the main protagonist. Qin Hai Lu, Li Zong Han, Ma Su, Chen Zi Han, Gan Ting Ting, Liu Yan and Wu Jin Yan star in their respective arcs in the overall story.
It finally makes sense why the promotions seem solely focused on Sheng Yilun given that he is essentially the that glue that binds all. It’s honestly a little worrying considering how the actor has been shown to have a limited range, often coming across as stoic and not much else.
Really, the only way I can see this working is if he functions more as an observer than a direct participant as the drama and romance unfolds. Then again, there’s always a chance that he might actually be really good. It’s not impossible.
Release Date: TBD
