At that time, 24-year-old entertainment newcomer Xu Kai was familiar to the audience by relying on his role as Fucha Fuheng in the popular TV series “Story of Yanxi Palace”.
He and Wu Jinyan staged a sweet and sadistic love story, although they did not end up being together, the audience was very optimistic about this CP, hoping that they could fake it and date in reality.
