“I’m not very close with the other actors, but I’m sure we’re going to have a great time this holiday,” said Karena at the press conference. “I am also a huge fan of Leehom. I met him at an event before. He’s very nice, and a gentleman. I believe we’ll have a great collaboration.”
Principal photography will take place from December to next March. The crew plans to spend their Christmas holidays filming the movie in a Beijing film studio.
