Records of the Southern Mist House 南烟斋笔录 has released a whole slew of characters posters featuring Crystal Liu and Jing Boran. This will be Crystal Liu’s comeback drama more than ten years since her breakout role opposite Huang Xiaoming in The Return of the Condor Heroes 2006.
Jing Boran has had a shorter break from dramaland since his last one was opposite Zheng Shuang in Love Weaves Through A Millennium in 2015. He shot to superstardom in the same year after playing the lead in the blockbuster movie Monster Hunt.
I’m beginning to think that these two are the only people in the cast and the undivided attention on them seems just as well since it is quite a big deal for both movie stars to sign up for a drama together.
The story is based on a manhua by of the same name by Ke Xiao Sha 壳小杀 and Guo Xiao Ling 左小翎 and tells a story between the owner of the Record Mist House and the man that she loves. The heroine has the power to use fragrances to cure broken hearts. Shameless plug here, but it reminds me of That Man, Oh Soo, which you may want to check out.
