In an attempt to make ends meet, she joins a troupe of traveling performers – where she meets Sun Yu Lou (Wang Yi Zhe), the heir of a rich family. He falls in love with Lin Shao Chun at first sight.

She plans to join the civil service, and disguises herself as a man in order to take the necessary examinations. Sun Yu Lou resolves to help her, although his family vehemently opposes at first. Regardless, the duo begins to form a close bond and eventually marry. However, when she discovers that a member of her husband’s family may have played a role in her own family’s fall, Lin Shao Chun finds herself at a crossroads... “Song of Youth” is a 2021 Chinese period drama series that was directed by Gao Han and Bai Yun Mo.
