Zhou Dongyu (Behind the Scenes) and Jackson Yi Yang Qianxi (The Longest Day in Chang An) are sharing the lead in the new movie Shao Nian De Ni 少年的你 which more or less translates to The Youthful You.
This coming-of-age movie directed by Derek Tsang tells the story of how one incident on the eve of a college entrance examination changes the lives of two teens.
Jackson Yi plays Bei Yie, a struggling student while Zhou Dongyu plays the studious Chen Nian. Both students will have to grow up faster than everybody else to cope with the emotional trauma from one accident. It sounds so dramatic already!
This is Jackson’s first leading role which would come as a new challenge for the young actor. While she certainly looks the part, Zhou Dongyu play a character a decade younger than she is. She turned 26 this year while Jackson Yi who is a member of the TFBOYS is 17 years old.
It would be interesting to see if this movie will perform as well as Soulmate wherein Zhou Dongyu won a Golden Horse Award for Best Actress since she will be working with the same team for this new movie.
