As modern life places increasing pressure on people, there is a growing desire for a slower pace of life and a return to traditional farming. "Farming is not just about labor; it is more about the stories between people and their connection to the land," Hong Ling, the director of the TV drama Romance on the Farm, told China Daily.

"I aimed to create a grounded, true-to-life costume drama, emphasizing the concept of 'city orphan'. It portrays the journey of someone who has experienced the isolation of city life, and then finds warmth in a big family, ultimately developing a stronger character", Hong explained.

She also added that the drama is quite different from others, as it focuses more on rural life and narrates stories of ordinary people against the backdrop of the Song Dynasty (960-1279).
