“You are as precious to me as my life. I promise you, I will never leave you,” the heartless demon lord Dong Fang Qing Cang (played by Dylan Wang) promises the young fairy Xiao Lan Hua (played by Esther Yu) in this trailer.
In Love Between Fairy And Devil (苍兰决), Xiao Lan Hua is reincarnated from an immortal tribe that had been vanquished by demon lord Dong Fang Qing Cang 10,000 years ago. She accidentally revives the defeated demon lord, who wants to sacrifice her immortal soul to release the curse placed upon him. Along the way, the two begin to fall in love as the heartless demon lord is gradually touched by the gentle and kind fairy.
In Mr. BAD (我的反派男友), novelist Nan Xing (played by Shen Yue) returns home to find Xiao Wu Di (played by Chen Zhe Yuan), the villain from her book, sitting on her couch. The latter is also devastated to find himself in a foreign world where he is powerless.
As Nan Xing helps Xiao adjust to his new life as a mortal in our world, the two end up in many fun and romantic situations, eventually sharing a kiss that audiences will no doubt be excited to witness.
Sci-fi romance series Love in Time (我的秘密室友) comes up next. A down-and-out lawyer (played by Yang Xuwen) retires to a mysterious apartment where meets a mysterious woman (played by Xiang Hanzhi).

Throughout their relationship, we see the male lead recording their precious moments on his phone to memorialise these important moments. How will this passionate romance end up? Stay tuned to find out!
“To me, whether I stay here or return to the past, it was worth it. Because after I met you, my life has had more purpose,” said Xiang Qinyu (played by Hu Yi Tian), in the segment for See You Again (超时空罗曼史), a romance series that transcends the boundaries of time.
In this series, Xiang Qinyu is an actor from the 1930s, who time travels to the modern era after he is shot on set. He meets screenwriter Jin Ayin (played by Chen Yu Qi) and the two begin a path to love.
In the trailer segment, we see older versions of the two leads walking towards each other on an aisle, stopping in front of each other as the scene transitions into an earlier time when they were younger.
