Wait in Beijing 我在北京等你 is a 50-episode romance drama revolving around the story of two hardworking adults powered by their own goals and constantly facing challenges in life with a can do attitude. Since this drama was filmed in New York and Beijing, expect that it will cover the differences in lifestyles between the two big cities.
Growing up as an orphan in the streets of Brooklyn, Xu Tian (Li Yi Feng) aspires to be a lawyer to help those in need. Having finished her studies abroad, Sheng Xia (Maggie Jiang) who hails from China dreams of making it to the top in the fashion industry and seeing her own store along the famous Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Their lives are intertwined because of an accident.
It stars Li Yifeng (Fearless Whispers), Maggie Jiang Shuying (Memories of Love) and a supporting cast that includes Jiang Mengjie (The Perfect Wedding), George Hu (Art in Love), He Dujuan (The Destiny of White Snake), Li Chenhao (Legend of Chusen) and Ke Tianrou (Tara Klance).
Looking back, it feels like Li Yifeng hasn’t been in a drama in years and it’s true. His last dramas were Legend of Chusen and Sparrow in 2016. I’m sure we can all agree that he’s a hottie, but Animal World opened a lot of people’s eyes to what Li YIfeng can offer as an actor. Looking forward to his comeback.
Release Date: February 23, 2020 primetime on Zhejiang TV, Jiangsu TV, online on Youku, Tencent
