New romantic drama Love 'til the End of Summer captures the perfect mood for pure romance, first love, and how high-school friends move forward from carefree life of youthful optimism into the realities of post-school life. How will they change? Will they stay true to their friendship and ideals?

These are just a few of the reasons why you should watch the new romantic drama.

1. The drama is based on a famous novel that reigned for five years on the list of bestselling fictions in China.

Written by Guo Jingming, one of China's hottest young novelists, who also authored Ice Fantasy, Tiny Times and its sequels, the book traces ten summers in the life of high-school friends from the time they first met to how they matured and changed during the ensuing decade. Each of the book's ten chapters is devoted to what happens each year. 

2. Zheng Shuang - The popular actress returns as a high-school student after her college campus romance, Love O2O

The name of her character, Li Xia (立夏), literally means the beginning of summer, and the term resonates with the symbolic meaning in the story's title, Love til the End of Summer.  Our story begins with Li Xia's arrival at a new high school.

3. Chen Xue Dong - A brand new Chinese drama means a wonderful new opportunity to meet a rising heartthrob. Also named Cheney Chen, the hottest young leading man rose to fame in the hit movies Tiny Times and its three sequels, which were all written and directed by the famous author Guo Jingming himself.

4. Guo Jingming is also the artistic director in the new drama, and he has insisted on extending the sensitive touch that he conveyed in the novel to the atmospheric cinematography of the drama.

Although the novel originally traced the years from 1995 to 2005, with the ending year also the same year when the author finished writing the story, the new adaptation can be viewed as a nostalgic look at any span of years with the eternal theme of how first love and youthful optimism will thrive or wither under the pressure of realities.
