Good news for Lin Gengxin fans because the actor has wrapped his new drama To Love 最初的相遇，最后的别离, formerly Love and Lost, after four months of filming. Also calling it a wrap are his co-stars Liu Mingming and Qin Xiaofei.
Different from his previous roles, Lin Gengxin plays Yan Jin (严谨). The name itself means strict and vigilant in English which kind of fits his role as a former anti-narcotics cop turned police informant who then goes undercover to find his friend’s killer. He also has a love line with the character played by actress Ge Yuexi.
Meanwhile, it looks like the running joke between him and his fans is still going strong. Lin Gengxin’s last movie was Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings and his last drama was Princess Agents though he actually filmed Detective Dee in 2017 and Princess Agents the year before. That’s practically two years that the actor has gone without a new project which is why his fans have been constantly urging him to get back to work.
Now that he’s freed up again, it seems that fans are not having it as they joke that he should jump to his next project right away. His cheeky response, “Please raise me, I don’t want to film.” Others respond that they can’t raise him because dog food is not cheap (Lin’s nickname is Lin dog) while others say that they’d love to.
I’d second that though. Would love to see him back in historicals! Still missing Yuwen Yue!
