The 28th February saw the start of filming for If Time Flows Back 如果岁月可回头. Jiang Xin’s much-beloved role in Ode to Joy, and Jin Dong’s role in The First Half of My Life and many other dramas have sent the two into superstardom in recent years, so their collaboration in this upcoming drama is, understandably, eagerly awaited.
Jiang Xin and Jin Dong’s cooperation in the TV show Arrows on the Bowstring and their playful off-screen behavior led to rumors of a sex scandal which quickly proved to be false. Jiang Xin has been caught in dating rumors since last year with fellow Ode to Joy co-star Wang Kai, and Jin Dong has been married to Li Jia for a number of years now, so we don’t expect any sparks to fly. However, their cooperation in this new show is sure to lead to a strengthening of their friendship and some great on-set comradery.
In If Time Flows Back, three strangers, Bai Zhiyong (Jin Dong), Huang Jiuheng (Li Zonghan) and Lan Tianyu (Li Naiwen) all happen to come to the same new city in search of healing from their failed marriages. They run into a troubled and mysterious woman, Jiang Xiaomei (Jiang Xin), and together they support each other through new challenges.
The strong behind-the-scenes presence of the Shandong Film and Television Production Company and Zhejiang Xianjun Film and Television Production Company should lead to a high quality production. Already this is evident as the filming locations include both Shenzhen and Australia.
