It’s amazing how a period drama with serious undertones narrating the struggles ordinary people went through in the beginning stages of China’s economic reform captured the attention of so many despite the popularity and prevalence of fantasy dramas and fluffy modern romances. This definitely says something about the caliber of its line-up of actors as well as the ability of its screenwriter Tang Yao to make the drama’s characters relatable even to modern day audiences. With the return of its original stars and talented screenwriter for the second season, I’m sure we can expect great things from the sequel!
