Against the Light 逆光 recently released promotional posters to announce the casting of Zhang Hanyu (Peace in Palace, Peace in Chang An) and Lan Ying Ying (Never Gone). There’s a whopping 26-year age gap between them in real life and in the drama, Zhang Hanyu plays one of the founders of a large conglomerate while Lang Ying Ying plays a newcomer looking to unravel the truth behind her mother’s imprisonment.
I just realized that Zhang Hanyu’s filmography has been in period pieces, and this marks Zhang Hanyu’s return to modern dramas after being away for nearly ten years. It is a workplace drama focusing on the jewelry industry. The two main characters are an antithesis of each other – one protects a promise and one searches for answers.
