China’s K-ent Ban May be Lifting as Song Joong Ki and Hyun Bin Movies in Talks for Premiere But Jade Lover with Lee Jong Seok Delayed Until 2030 Due to Zheng Shuang Blacklist

The defrosting appears to have begun with China and South Korean tension that led to basically the soft ban on K-dramas airing on TV and movies in theaters in the Mainland.
