In Youth 趁我们还年轻 is a 40-episode drama about young people in the workforce. Alternatively, its Chinese title translates to While We Are Still Young. The series stars Leon Zhang, Bridgette Qiao Xin, Wayne Liu Ruilin, Maggie Huang Mengying and Daisy Dai Si wherein everyone except for Qiao Xin are managed by Jaywalk Studio.
Lin Zi Yu is fortunate enough to get a position at Feilin, an accomplished PR firm with a good reputation. She immediately gets on the wrong side of her boss Fan Shu Chen who is a genius in the field. At the same time, the company faces corporate leakages such that Fan Chu Chen suspects that Lin Zi Yu may be the culprit. Of course, along the way, the two are bound to start falling for each other.
Plucky, hardworking heroine versus difficult boss is nothing out of the ordinary, but I definitely think that the drama has potential if only for its very likeable cast that fit the bill of inspired youths learning and growing together. Put their story of friendship and love in a corporate setting and it could be quite relatable for many of us.
Release Date: April 13, 2019 Dragon TV (two episodes daily 7:30pm), episodes online Youku, iQIYI
