Popular actors Allen Ren Jialun (任嘉倫) and Bai Lu’s (白鹿) latest drama Forever and Ever <一生一世> finally came to an end, with a surprise for the actor’s fans.
While viewership has held high since its release, some fans commented on the drama’s slow pacing. The story finally propelled forward when it reached the last few episodes. Ren Jialun’s sister, who suffers from heart disease, had her operation delayed due to the tampering of her medical records, and eventually died. The usually collected Ren Jialun had an unexpected breakdown, and the actor touched many with his delivery of a heart-rending and emotionally explosive scene.
Returning home, he tells his wife (played by Bai Lu) that he will go to wash up. When he remains in the shower for a long time, he rouses her concerns. Worried about her husband, she peeks in and finds him in the bathtub, apparently paralyzed by grief. She walks in and gives the naked Ren Jialun a hug, with the filmography capturing much poetic beauty. In that scene, the actor also revealed his wide chest, eliciting the excitement of his legion of fans.
Successfully making it to the A-lister list, Ren Jialun has been on the radar with consistent performance in a string of dramas. Next he will be filming Please Your Lord <請君>, which he will star alongside actress Li Qin (李沁) in another anticipated pairing.
