Huang Xiaoming, Qin Hailu play a married couple in upcoming drama

006tnpptly1fhyaxqyhfoj31kw11xauo

Huang Xiaoming bowed out of modern idol drama Here to Heart to film this, and was replaced with Zhang Han.

The Years You Were Late 你迟到的许多年 stars Qin Hailu (White Deer Plain) as a soldier turned telephone operator, and Huang Xiaoming (A Life Time Love) as her estranged husband who later becomes an entrepreneur.

The drama is a loose adaption of script writer Yan Geling’s Buyu Cottage, and aims to provide a realistic depiction of the lives of everyday people during the economic reforms of the 1980s. It’s sounding a lot like Yin Tao and Zhang Yi’s sleeper hit Feather Flies to the Sky, so here’s to hoping this drama can replicate the former’s success.

The 30 episode drama is directed by Lin Ke, and started filming a week ago.
