Re: C-drama: ICN 44.8 北京爱情故事 (Beijing Love Story) Saw episode one tonight and I am in love w/ the drama's dialogue. Chen Si Cheng is multi-talented--director as well as being one of the scriptwriters for this drama. You wouldn't think it given how his character was like in the first episode.
And he and Tong Li Ya (she's one of the girls in this drama, I think she was the girl in the car where he answered he's going where she's going, but they went in different directions?) are a real-life couple.
