[Adapted by Annie Baby’s novel, Qiyue and Ansheng] Set in the city, Soulmate centers on a love-triangle between two women and one man. Due to a twist of fate, the two high school best friends fall in love with the same man, planting the seeds of tragedy. The story chronicles the coming of age journey of two very different young women, who choose different paths in life. July and Ansen are flip sides of the same coin; one is calm like water and the other is passionate like fire. Although they endure the rites of passage together, from youth to adulthood, their friendship may only persist in the form of a long goodbye, until they part forever.
