CRI: 'If You Are the One 2' Gets Poetic Ending
Huayi Brothers, the film's production company, released the movie's closing song "Zui Hao Bu Xiang Jian" ("Best Not to Meet"), saying its lyrics were taken from Tsangyang Gyatso's poem "Shi Jie Shi" ("Ten Nots Poem").

The work is split into two obvious parts, the styles and plots of which are in complete contrast, as if coming from two different writers. Later as I found out, they actually did.
Shortly after the film's premiere last week, scriptwriter Gao Xuan complained on her weibo (local version of twitter) that despite the fact that she, Chen and another writer had worked on the script for the first half of the film, she was only credited for "early-stage script composition" instead of "scriptwriter."
