My Sunshine (simplified Chinese: 何以笙箫默; traditional Chinese: 何以笙簫默) is a 2015 Chinese television series based on the novel Silent Separation written by Gu Man. It stars Wallace Chung and Tiffany Tang. The series premiered simultaneously on Dragon TV, Jiangsu TV, and iQiyi on 10 January 2015.
In their university days, Zhao Mosheng fell in love at first sight with law student He Yichen. Through various incidents where Mosheng "stalked" Yichen on campus, Mosheng's cheerful personality charmed Yichen, and they slowly became college sweethearts. When Yichen's foster sister, Yimei challenged Mosheng for Yichen's attention, Mosheng turned directly to Yichen for clarification, but did not expect to receive a cold response from him. Mistaking that Yichen and Yimei are a couple, Mosheng followed her father's arrangements and moved to the United States to continue her studies. Seven years later, Mosheng, who is now a professional photographer, returns to China, and coincidentally bumps into Yichen who has never forgotten her after all these years. Since the seven years they broke up, many people stand in the way of these star-crossed lovers: foster-sister Yimei; Mosheng's marriage in United States; the unrelentingly infatuated ex-husband Ying Hui; as well as the financial grudges between the couple's fathers. All these situations continue to affect the two former lovers, but instead, these misunderstandings and challenges give them a better comprehension of the love they have missed over the past seven years.

Wallace Chung and Tiffany Tang were cast in the respective lead roles of He Yichen and Zhao Mosheng six months after the show's initial production announcement at the end of 2013. Filming started on June 20, 2014 in Shanghai, and ended September 14, 2014 at Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour.
The younger versions of Mosheng and Yichen were supposed to be acted by two unknown newcomers, but after behind-the-scenes photos were leaked, netizens criticized the actors' appearances, "During the seven years, does this mean they went to South Korea for plastic surgery?" Both Tiffany Tang and Wallace Chung expressed their desire to film their own university-era character versions, so the original footage was scrapped, and university-era scenes were filmed in September 2014.
