Sunrise on the River: Huang Zhi Zhong Wants To Protect His City From Ecological Decay In New C-Drama

Sunrise on the River New cdrama

Sunrise on the River follows Lin Han Jiang (played by Huang Zhi Zhong) who’s appointed as the director of the board charged with overseeing environmental protection, but he quickly realizes that he has his hands full.

For one, his multiple theses about environmental protection and theorized policies that can be put in place to better support the safeguard of the ecological system are put to test when faced with politics and actual execution.

But Lin Han Jiang is anything but a quitter, so he sets out to solve the issue from the roots and this undoubtedly takes him into the people’s hearts and houses.

It’s adapted from Jiang Liu Tian Di Wai, which is a novel written by Dong Hua Ping, and with only four episodes in circulation at the moment, it’s still unclear how much they’ve changed in the book-to-screen process.

I was very excited when they released the official cast lineup sometime ago because it’s chock-full of popular, household names that’ll strike a chord deep inside.

There’s Huang Zhi Zhong, our male lead who’s a veteran actor in every sense of the word and has so many Chinese dramas and movies under his belt – Have you watched Blue Shield?

Huang Zhi Zhong has made a name for himself for his action-focused roles and I do not doubt that he’ll do wonderfully in this drama as well.

And then there’s Mei Ting who had me rooting for her when she played Jian Dian in the 2021 family drama Happiness Is Easy, so I know this drama is going to be a cakewalk for her.
