"Pains in the City", a fresh urban romantic comedy went onto the stage of the National Center for the Performing Arts for the second time on Wednesday evening. Nostalgic music, mellow dance, glaring lights and hilarious plots shepherd the audience into a unique dramatic world.

The story centers around architect Luo Hang, who takes advantage of airline jet lag to hang out with three pretty stewardesses. However, the ride is not as easy as expected and the three airlines unexpectedly send the three stewardesses on the same journey.

Hilarity ensues as the protagonist tries to cope with the mess in his apartment.

TV hostess Li Xia plays one of three stewardesses. She took the challenge to be cast as a hot and sexy lady, a far cry from her familiar image.

Li Xia, Actress, said, "I have to overcome a huge hurdle in my physical expression. The heroine's personality and way of handling affairs is very different from mine. She's the fast and loose type. So I have to use distinctive body language to portray her."
