Blossoms Shanghai is produced and directed by one of Hongkong most celebrated filmmakers, Wong Kar Wai, whose last movie he directed, The Grandmaster (2013), was nominated in the Oscar Awards for Best Cinematography and Best Costume Design.

This is also Wong Kar Wai's television drama debut! So there's a lot of expectation coming from fans and critics about this drama. 

What made this project exciting is that it will tackle the life and evolution of the place where Wong Kar Wai and Hu Ge both were born, Shanghai. 

The fact that it took three years for the production crew to make this drama signifies that it is high-quality, and a good reason for Hu Ge to come out from his drama hiatus.

No schedule yet for Blossoms Shanghai but other reports claimed it might be aired in 2023. Below is the plot summary of this drama.
