Home to powerful warlords, burgeoning heroes and revolutionist ideals of the time, the hustle and bustle of turn of the century Shanghai serves as the backdrop for the machinations of a meticulous school teacher as she carefully plots revenge against her enemy, the head of the wealthy Rong family.
City of Streamer Synopsis
Seeking justice for the heinous crimes committed by the Rong patriarch, school teacher Feng Shizhen goes undercover in the Rong household to become a tutor for young master Rong Jia Shang (Timmy Xu). As the two continue to challenge each other, they inexplicably grow closer together and fall in love. When decades of grievances and old hatreds surface to threaten the blossoming relationship between Feng Shizhen and Rong Jiashang, will the two manage to break away from family loyalties and work together to expose the truth?
Adapted from author Mi Bao’s novel of the same name, City of Streamer is a 45 episode series which stars actress Jing Tian as the courageous school teacher Feng Shizhen. Since shooting her fantasy drama Rattan with co-star Vin Zhang in 2019, Jing Tian hasn’t been very active in the industry this year so it’s nice to see her back in front of the cameras with a brand new project. Meanwhile, Timmy Xu Weizhou tries out another genre as he co-stars in his very first Republican drama to play the seemingly indifferent and arrogant young master Rong Jia Shang.
The drama also stars Jing Chao, Karina Hai Ling, Chi Jia and Wang Yifei.
