    Hu Xianxu

    Hu Xianxu plays the construction worker Wang Rui in the film, which is very different from his previous roles. Talking about this role, Hu Xianxu said that the most important emotional connection between himself and Wang Rui is "the degree of belief in this relationship. If I want to play him well, I must first be very dedicated and believe in this marriage and this love." At the same time, Hu Xianxu said, "I have to restore the state of a husband in the 1990s as much as possible. I need to have a better understanding of that time, so I also did a lot of homework in private." As for his performance, Hu Xianxu felt that "I feel that the presentation is okay, and it is not very close to me. It can be regarded as a character, but it is not fabricated out of thin air. There are still many grasping points."

    There is a heartwarming scene in the film, in which Wang Rui, who lost one shoe while running to catch a train, chooses to throw the other shoe out of the window after getting on the train. Hu Xianxu interpreted this plot design as the protagonist's wish to "pass on love." "These two people, in addition to their love for each other, also have a love for life. They have the ability to love each other, the ability to love others, and the ability to pass on love. This is what makes Wang Rui so remarkable." Because of this awareness, "his first reaction was not to find a way to get the shoe back and then get another pair. He thought about throwing the shoe on the platform for others to pick up. It is a kindness to be able to pick up a pair. We also hope that after watching this movie, everyone can pass on this love to more people."

    On the first day of its release, the film earned over 17 million at the box office.
