Once Given, Never Forgotten trailer

Let’s just take a second to appreciate a rare well-translated title. The title refers to her taking on his last name after she loses her memory.

Former child actress Zhang Xueying stars in her first major production in Once Given, Never Forgotten你的名字我的姓氏, and she looks amazing.    

The teaser is a little misleading, but FYI  the male lead (Yang Le) did not adopt her because that would be creepy.  Instead, the female lead was adopted by the male lead’s deceased girlfriend’s family after she received her cornea transplant.

The series is mostly a typical love triangle + car crash+ memory loss plot, but it looks cute.  Plus, it’s written and produced  Yao Yao, who actually did a great job with her previous work 漂洋过海来看你.
