Song Yi Headlines Newest Historical Drama 'Shadow Love' with Cheng Lei After 'Follow Your Heart

The cast of “Shadow Love” (与晋长安), a new historical drama starring Song Yi and Ryan Cheng Lei, has kicked off on May 13, 2024. It marks a reunion for the two after they filmed the yet-to-air “Follow Your Heart,” which they shot in 2023. At the time, Cheng Lei played the second lead as Song Yi was paired with Luo Yunxi.

Song Yi made her debut as Xiang Ling in the costume drama “The Dream of Red Mansions” in 2010. Many of her notable roles have been in ancient costume. The 34-year-old actress was Fan Ruoruo in “Joy of Life,” Su Tan’er in “My Heroic Husband,” and Liu Yuru in “Destined.” While, 30-year-old Cheng Lei who is four years younger than his co-star started out a bit later, he also became known for the period genre having played Gong Shangjue, the second male lead in “My Journey to You.”

Apart from her badass role as Yu Manli in “The Disguiser,” Song Yi often embodies refined characters. Her role as a female general in “Shadow Love” marks a departure from her usual repertoire. Li Shuang, a courageous and skilled female general is given a month to weed out a spy.
