Lockdown Lovers came out earlier this year and takes place in Hong Kong mainly during the beginning of the pandemic. When Lockdown Lovers opens with “Hong Kong February–March, 2020”, we expect a flashback to hysteria and paranoia. When she heard about the number of fledgling couples moving in together during lockdown, the Relate therapist Simone Bose wasn’t surprised. She received an MPhil in Government and Public Administration from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The strategy of building a strong fan-base, interacting with them online and building a tribe, and then capitalising through spin-off series, uncut and extended editions and/or films has proven successful for previous hit LGBT content, such as Canada’s Carmilla and Australian web-series Starting From…Now, which was picked up by SBS after three successful seasons online.More than a third of people newly living with a partner believed that two months of lockdown felt like the equivalent of two years of commitment. We use 12 pigments inks to create every single piece, meaning that your art print is guaranteed to last up to 100 years. I knew it was meant as a kind of gasp of shock at the end of their plea, a crowning moment of appeal. Can these two perfect strangest survive a month together or will their differences drive them apart? Lilydale Films is currently in pre-production for the fifth season of its Young Adult Romance drama series Flunk, with development and production support from Screen Australia and VicScreen.

Since the start of the pandemic, thousands of people have found themselves in turbo relationships, forced by lockdown measures to speed up the conventional rhythms of commitment. He delivers groceries and medicine to his parents’ porch but the pain is too much when he sees them staring at him from twenty feet away behind the porch door. O’Sullivan’s unique and penetrative writing style reminds us of Hong Kong’s malleability and vulnerability to language.

The novel alternates between the perspectives of John, John's wife Sue, his son Sam, Phoebe, Kwok-ying, a Government Health official, Princess Selina, a millionaire's heiress, and the pangolin, as they all find their own way to deal with the dramatic changes in their lives environments. Books like Ying Ma’s Severance and Laurie Halse Anderson’s Fever 1793 also provided a counterintuitive calming effect. Potentially also [it’s made harder by] not necessarily having an escape… Sometimes, if we’re having a conversation… it kind of becomes way deeper than maybe we wanted it to.

Throughout the novel, the lives of Kwok-Ying and John and Phoebe intersect briefly and inconsequentially but it wouldn’t matter if they didn’t. Her debut novel, The Widening of Tolo Highway ( Penguin Random House SEA, 2022), set in Hong Kong’s New Territories, is now available worldwide.Lilydale Films has amassed a global audience through their hit web-series Flunk, which garnered 150 million views across YouTube and sparked two spin-off feature films.

However, if you keep an open dialogue with each other, an intense environment with a partner can be a quick way to learn how you both work and can create a stronger partnership. Couples will maybe get a shock to their system after they realise that person isn’t the same, because they probably won’t be exactly the same. One of O’Sullivan’s three narrators is John, who is an Irish professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.Considering the tiny apartments packed with bunk beds in densely packed neighbourhoods, what kind of mobility was there before the pandemic? During the first lockdown, there was a period where we essentially spent four months completely in each other’s company every day, and we both were working from home. But for every whirlwind romance that worked out this year, there are plenty that couldn’t take the intensity of pandemic. Written by DANNY SPRING, Lockdown Lovers – Set in Melbourne during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kristal (Kate Mayhew) is enjoying the last few days of her trip to Australia when she meets Lisette (Stevie McKeon) on a night out in the city.
