#FIRSTLOOK: “HELLO (AGAIN)”
Canadian stars Simu Liu and Nathalie Younglai team together to create upcoming CBC Gem Series HELLO (AGAIN). The nine-episode Series at ten minutes each, arrives this later month.
The Series centers on Jayden (Alex Mallari Jr.) and Avery (Rong Fu) who meet by chance one day in a park. They begin their whirlwind romance, but flash-forward to the present, and we see them having relationship troubles. Months pass after their breakup, and Jayden has another chance encounter, this time crossing paths with a supernatural girl (Rebecca Chan) who while annoying him, also by puts him in his place, pushing him to giving love another go.
HELLO (AGAIN) takes the Rom-Com genre and offers a fresh-spin on it, lending focus to how relationships take much work to thrive, working its way backwards and then forward again. It recognizes the importance of self-reflection and doing the work with one’s self, because a relationship won’t fix all problems when there are underlying issues to be confronted. All this, while doing this in a distinctively Asian-Canadian voice, nagging mother sighing “Aiya” and all! The Music featured on the Series also is by Asian-Canadian Artist, Kierscey.
Mallari and Fu are engaging as our leads and while we’ve only previewed the first couple episodes, we are interested to see where the story takes them and their journeys.
Don’t forget to check-out HELLO (AGAIN) as it streams March 25, 2022 on CBC Gem. More here.
