This upcoming C-movie Soulmate 七月与安生 stars Zhou Dongyu, Toby Lee (who also appears in Happy Dorm), and Sichun Ma (who most notably starred in The Left Ear). It is a coming-of-age film with a harem set-up, the male lead caught between the two female leads’ affections.
The movie is an adaptation of the novel July and Ansheng (same title in Chinese), which tells the story of two girls who have been friends since they were thirteen years old. However, the two happen to fall for the same guy called Jia Ming, and fate follows. Ah, so it is one of those eternal friendship or love questions.
The movie is set to be released on September 14, 2016.
In which we find out that Zhou Dongyu learned how to smoke for the first time in order to film her character. She has this air of quiet dignity around her in real life that I’ve also noticed in that dating show she was a part of earlier. But she also seems relaxed and is able to joke around with the other actors while filming– I feel like she would be a great actress in rom-coms, with a similar vibe as Gong Hyo Jin unnie. And can I just say that I love her hair here? It’s gorgeous.
