Definitely Not Today
Mi Chong (Leon Leong) is a young man with crippling social anxiety. He is so unsatisfied with his miserable existence, which mainly involves staying at home all day, frozen with fear about social interaction, that he finally decides to end his life. He heads down to a nearby river, intent on committing suicide. But when he sees a young girl named Zhi Liu (Vivienne Tien) n the river, about to drown, he instinctively dives in to save her. Little did he know but Zhi Liu has also been through a very rough time. Unlike him, she is an extravert, but her tumultuous family life has taken its toll on her, and she wants to get away from the people who have caused her pain. An unlikely friendship develops between these two individuals, despite their polar opposite personalities – but could love also follow? This drama was partly based on real-life court cases that were processed by the Chinese prosecution service, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate. “Definitely Not Today” is a 2021 Chinese drama series that was directed by Gu Quan and Zhang Qing Fan.
