The opening ceremony of Longyou Business Group, the 20-episode short TV series about historical figures was held on Xikou Old Street in Longyou county, Quzhou, Zhejiang province on Feb 15.
Longyou business group was one of the traditional top 10 business groups in China. It was formed in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) and flourished in the middle of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It was most known for jewelry, bookselling and paper.
To preserve the spirit of Longyou merchants, the short play will be shot on Xikou Old Street, the birthplace of the Longyou business group.
It will tell a series of stories about many famous figures in the business group helping each other in various industries and maintaining a sense of patriotic duty during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911).
"We hope that the play will help promote the culture of Longyou business group and local tourism," said Yu Gang, chairman of the Longyou federation of literature, art, film and television.
