One and Only 周生如故 which tells a beautiful yet tragic romance is about to usher its finale. It is the first of two dramas starring Allen Ren Jialun and Bai Lu and lucky for us, there will be no need to wait. The sequel, Forever and Ever 一生一世, which continues the story in modern times premieres this September 6 on iQIYI.
In Forever and Ever, the heroine whose name is still Shi Yi is a voice actress. No longer part of the prominent Cui family from her previous life, she is now free to love and be herself. Meanwhile, Zhou Shengchen is a chemistry professor in this lifetime. He may be a genius but he is a complete novice when it comes to pursuing a woman. The reincarnated lovers cross paths again at an airport. Zhou Shengchen first proposes marriage leading to the two finding love again.
The trailer is chock-full of adorable moments of Ren Jialun’s character fumbling as he tries to approach Bai Lu’s character while the latter would boldly be the one to say words like, “come closer to me.” The modern version is not without drama as the male lead becomes involved in the infighting with their family business. Nonetheless, the sweet moments ought to make up for the tearjerking prequel. The story is adapted from Mo Bao Fei Bao’s novel “One Life One Incarnation Beautiful Bones.”
