It’s been two years since William Chan’s (陈伟霆) last appeared in a mainland Chinese TV drama, but the actor-singer is still as popular as ever.
In 2018, William completed the filming of upcoming Chinese TV drama Dancing in the Storm <风暴舞>, a crime drama series about a man being framed by his employer. The drama was delayed several times before it was finally announced that it would be scheduled for release in 2020.
Despite it being a delayed release, many investors are still very interested in the series. According to the annual report released by Dancing in the Storm’s production studio Ciwen Media, Dancing in the Storm attracted the most investors in 2019, earning over 590 million yuan. The revenue earned from the unaired series occupied half of the studio’s total earnings of the year. That number alone helped the studio recovered the earnings lost from previous seasons.
Other dramas very popular with investors included Under the Power <锦衣之下>, Death Notify 3 <暗黑者3>, and Detective <侦探语录>.
Dancing in the Storm also stars Gülnezer Bextiyar (古力娜扎), Simon Yam (任达华), and Song Yanfei (宋妍霏).
