It’s clear C-actor Hu Ge has his eyes on a prize bigger than popularity and easy appeal as he’s about to follow up multiple hit dramas from recent years with a turn to the dark side. Hu Ge has been playing sweet male lead characters from his debut days and in recent years veered into the upstanding calculating type in The Disguiser and Nirvana in Fire. Now he gets to play real bad in C-movie Cherry Returns (Chinese title That Summer, Where Did You Go). It’s about a girl who gets kidnapped at the age of 12 year and comes home 12 years later all grown up and suffering from massive PTSD, collaborating with her kidnapper for a long brewing revenge plan. Hu Ge plays said kidnapper and the role is all bad without a lick of redemption, so he’s actually quite excited to don the mantle of the antagonist. The movie looks fantastic and baddie Hu Ge even more mesmerizing to behold.
Trailer for Cherry Returns:
I need to watch this movie! I love Hu Ge and his acting, and I have always wanted to see him in an antagonist role, especially a really charismatic and calculating one. I can’t wait to see it!
Loved to see Hu Ge in this kidnapper /baddie role, am confident he will do a very good job with it. He is a very talented and instinctive actor and is one of the best/ if not the best Chinese actor of his generation. Hope the movie will be released outside of China.
HuGe can kidnap me any time. Huhuhu Im excited to see Bad boy Huge. cant wait for the movie to come out.
Looks like all top C-actors are going villainous us: Wallace Chung w/”Three and Tik Tok,” Wallace Huo with “Reset” and now Hu Ge with “Cherry Returns.”
I’m always in for villain Hu Ge… and he looked creepy in the trailer too… wish him best
Zhang ziyi gets $400,000,000 USD to play a series Emperor Conquest with Hu Ge. I wonder how much will Hu Ge gets?
I honestly doubt Zhang Ziyi will be getting 400 million USD for the series. Hu Ge have yet to confirm, but his last drama paycheck (Hunting) was 20 million RMB.
He did sign-on Hunting before The Disguisher & Nirvana in Fire were broadcasted, so his asking price might be more nowadays.
I don’t think she will get that much. Even American A listers don’t get that much.
sorry a typo with extra zero. It should be $41,000,000.
No problem. Happy New Year to everyone! 🙂
There was an advanced screening on 24/12 and someone posted a screenshot of it on Weibo. The movie has English subs and now I’m praying really hard for it to be shown in my country.
All Chinese movies nowadays have both Chinese subtitles and English subtitles when they’re released in theaters.
That’s really good to hear. Hope to see more Mainland China movie being shown overseas – we mainly get only Hong Kong movie.
Ming Tai – Lin Shu – Mei Changsu…..rock on!!!
Wow! Looks fantastic. I am obsessed with Hu Ge and that is coming from someone who really doesn’t stray far from Kdramas (except to see Hu Ge). His growth is what most amazes me though. How he went from sub par in his earlier roles to par excellence over the last few years is truly something to behold. It’s almost like he always had the charisma but it took his accident to give him the gravitas. I don’t know what it is, but he is mesmerizing!
he was a bad guy in butterfly lovers, which made me feel like the crying emoji. T_T
