Rain holds down the fort at Endless August press conference while leading lady Victoria finishes prior commitments
There's another new TV drama coming to Chinese-speaking territories, folks! It's called Endless August (八月未央 / August Not The End) and it stars hardworking entertainers Rain (a.k.a. Jung Ji Hoon) and Victoria Song (a.k.a. Song Qian) of beloved K-Pop group f(x). The global conference announcing the drama was held on July 6 in Shanghai, with Rain on the red carpet and on stage with director Wang Xiaokang and additional cast members.
Check out the news coverage below!
Endless August is the drama adaptation of a novel of essays and stories by incredibly popular Beijing-based writer Anni Baobei (a.k.a. Ji Lie / Annie Baby). The themes that have made her a household name in literature are love and death, anxiety, isolation, and loneliness in urban settings, so viewers should probably have hankies ready to dab away some tears.
Victoria was unable to be at the conference due to prior commitments, but her fans were happy that she was there by video message. She's been busy filming C-drama Once Promised (上古情歌 / Ancient Love Song) since April, and will also star in upcoming C-drama Ice Fantasy, which premieres July 24 right here on DramaFever!
The actress is expected on the Endless August set later this month.
Early word on C-drama Endless August has it at 50 episodes, shooting in China and Canada.
Rain has already started filming the show in Shanghai and is prepared to work into October. There are no official stills yet, but fans and folks on set are taking care of that, haha. :)
Ice Fantasy starts on July 24 on DramaFever. Add it to your queue now!
