The Way We Were (2018)

The Way We Were premieres May 14, 2018
The Way We Were 归去来 is a 50-episode drama revolving around Chinese students studying abroad in the US. It is meant to give a glimpse into the problems relevant to the new generation, and I’m thinking that the drama must carry some weight as it has been selected as one of the national films to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Chinese economic reform.

It is led by real life couple Tang Yan and Luo Jin who play a couple that go their separate ways because of their differences in ideals. Tang Yan’s Xiao Qing aspires to be a righteous prosecutor just like her father while Luo Jin’s Shu Che hails from a political family. Xiao Qing’s father begins an investigation on Shu Che’s father.

A clear conflict is setup for the main couple between right and wrong, love and family. The cast also shares that they have never cried so much in a drama before. The statement would have me instinctively shying away if it were anyone else, but it’s my favorite Princess Weiyoung couple back together again. It also stars Amelie XuYu Ji WeiWang Tian Chen and Ma Cheng Cheng

The show was originally slated to air in June until it made a sudden announcement just a week before premiere date to indicate that it is airing in May. In times where dramas often get pushed back, it’s a nice surprise to be able to watch this a little earlier than expected.
