The Best of You in My Mind is a 2020 Chinese drama about two childhood friends who fall in love with each other.


Lin Xi Chi (Song Yi Ren) is a college student majoring in veterinary medicine. She is well-liked and known for being bright and cheerful, although, on the inside, she is more insure than she would like to let on.

Also attending the same university is her childhood friend, avid archer, and national defence student Xu Fang (Zhang Yao). He has had a crush on Xu Fang since they were both at school but has never plucked up enough courage to let her know. Although he can be quick-tempered with others, he always treats Lin Xi Chi with great tenderness.

When she loses a bet connected to an arm-wrestling bout, Lin Xi Chi has to forfeit a month's living costs – a twist of fate that brings the two ex-school friends closer together than ever.

And one evening, their friendship is turned upside down when Xi Chi gets drunk, and long-suppressed emotions suddenly come to the fore.[1]
