Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

Time to check in with another remake. Last time I wrote about the casting news was 8 months ago! Dun, dun, dun. Time flew by, didn’t it? And I kid you not. Yan Kuan, along with the cast, is perfection in every single still! Men and women everywhere should be envious. I’m excited about this one because 1) Don’t recall much about the storyline, last remake was a decade ago 2) the likable cast!

UPDATE (3/31/15): TRAILER (and more stills) IS OUT!!

Stills:

A refresher on the story, based on the novel written by Gu Long: Yan Kuan plays a noble thief who robs the rich and gives to the poor. In his adventures, he gets entangled in a love triangle with two lovely women. One is a noble lady (Gao Ting Ting) engaged to a prominent martial artist (Zhu Yi Long) with a standing on equal ground with her. The other (Li Yi Xiao) is his best friend who fights along his side while nursing an unrequited love for him.

Yan Kuan can do no wrong in any style!

This is beautiful… because brooding at a bar or on the ground is overrated. 😉

Lol, the hair clips. In Chinese dramas, when a character goes crazy, strands of white hair emerge! *hint hint*

    dafuq was the hairstylist thinking? curls?? on Yuang Hong??? really???? (note increasing number of question marks to demonstrate my incredulity). Asians do not naturally have hair that curls like that (much less guys…)… and pretty sure curling irons weren’t a thing back then… Yuan Hong is perfectly hot without ringlets in his hair…. ~_~

    Side note, Zhu Yi Long! Looks like he’s getting more exposure recently?

    Otherwise, looks decent, I’m down to watch it (well, add it to my ever growing list of cdramas… crap).

      LOL! Miss V! You’re mixing Yuan Hong (from BBJX) with hottie Yan Kuan here! 😛

      I don’t usually like curls but Yan Kuan rocks them. He looks really flirty with them and it fits his mischievous character. I can’t get angry at his face! hehehe!

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        Crap, got my names all mixed up xD
        I’m still iffy on the hairstyle choice, but I like Yan Kuan in historical series so I’ll give it a chance. : P

    Those curls. You think Yan Kuan will let me borrow his curling iron? Hehe.

    I wonder which Kristy Zhang drama we’ll be able to watch first, this one or Lan Ling.

    • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

      Let me borrow it after you. I have wavy hair, to make them into perfect curls = burning hazard. I burned my ear once to attend a wedding! Tsk Tskk!

      Aiiiiii, reading the name Lan Ling brings pain. This one before than one, I’m afraid so. =(

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        Ouch, that’s painful. Maybe we should just hire his stylist and curling iron…

        Noooooooooo. 🙁 I’ve already watched the trailer like a hundred times.

        • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

          I know… I have so many pretty pictures which I should post to soften the ache!

    Yan Kuan always looks hot in ancient hairstyles and clothes, but the stylists are nuts for adding those silly curls.

  4. 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

    Yan Kuan is definitely flawless but bloody hell, that curly wig is a crime against period costuming full stop. WTH was the stylist thinking???

    That said, the story sounds interesting and I like Yan Kuan, so I’m definitely interested! 😀

    • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

      Looks like I’m the only one who likes curls (on him ONLY. just on him..) 😛

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        Well TBH Yan Kuan looks flawless whether in modern or period dress. He just has that coolness about him with strong features that look good in almost anything. It’s just the curly hair looks out of place here. If the wig was long straight hair it’d look much better 🙂 but that’s just my personal opinion 😀

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        Both leading ladies are beautiful but I have a feeling I like Li Yi Xiao’s character more because she’s like a spy/assassin type of badass and more interesting 🙂

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        And on an unrelated note, when is that Lost Tomb series coming out? I really wanna see it! 🙂

        • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

          I like the entrancing spy woman with the badass tattoo too!

          At first, they were saying March, now it’s May for The Lost Tomb. We are so gonna be BOMBED come May-June with dramas!! Did you read the novel? If you did, leak me some juicy details. Lol.

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        LOL IKR? All these dramas are coming out during that May/June period! That’s when my Finals are on so I’m gonna have to resist starting any dramas till I get my semester break! 🙁

        I really wanna read the Lost Tomb novels but I haven’t had time to do that yet cuz semester’s started and I’m too busy with schoolwork. (sigh) Apparently the novels are quite good and the main character is a funny guy who’s cute and naive. (Sounds right up Li Yifeng’s alley in the characters he usually plays LOL)

        • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

          You poor thing! Ah, school. *hand on heart*

          hehe. He has that down pad. I’m looking forward to badass Yang Yang more than anything. 😉

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        Oh yeah, Yang Yang is definitely one I’m looking out for! I haven’t seen him act yet but he’s looking mighty fine in those Lost Tomb stills! 😀 I already like Li Yifeng cuz he’s one charming bastard but I wanna see how his character and Yang Yang’s character interact because apparently in the novel they have this epic bromance thing 🙂

        • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

          I can’t take my eyes of Yang Yang. *shy* I watched him as a teenager in the A Dream of Red Mansions and look what he’s become now. Lol. TLT is gonna be loaded with bromance left and right! I hope the cast will be able to film for the next few seasons/years.

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        Well I haven’t seen Dream of Red Mansions but I do like the way he looks here in the Lost Tomb! His character is apparently the mysterious cool and silent type and his look here shows that 😀

        Yes the bromance is definitely something to look forward to 🙂

        Isn’t Li Yifeng signed for like 8 years on this project? I assume the other leads like Yang Yang will be too?

        • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

          I didn’t watch it either, only saw cuts and fanmade mvs on youtube. ^_^

          He did…but 8 years is a long time for the ent industry! Unsure about the other boys.

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        IKR? I was really surprised when I saw the news about him being signed on the Lost Tomb for 8 years cuz it’s so long (almost like a Marvel contract where they sign actors on for like 6+ movies LOL). Well I suppose the character in Lost Tomb evolves with the series so it’s OK that the lead actor grows with the role…

        I’m not sure about this bit of news, but I heard rumors of a new wuxia series 诛仙 (a bit like Ancient Sword but more wuxia than fantasy) being in the talks with Yang Mi as one of the producers and some of the Ancient Sword cast reuniting? Rumor has it that Li Yifeng is most likely the lead (it’ll be awesome if he is cuz it fits him perfectly)?

        • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

          I have read about 诛仙 (Jade Dynasty) and Li Yi Feng’s likely participation. They are thinking of courting Angelababy as the female lead. Since there are no confirmations yet, I haven’t written about it. I saw pictures of the video games created and they look stunning! Let’s hope to hear something more concrete soon!! 😀

      • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

        I hope we hear something solid about this too because the story is epic (one of the Big 3 net novels) and the characters are really interesting. The main guy starts out good and has a tragic past and then grows up to be all good but more tragedy happens to him and makes him turn into a “bad guy” and then he turns good again 🙂

        How’s that for character development???

        • 27 thoughts on “Flawless Yan Kuan in upcoming remake of Xiao Shi Yi Lang’s Trailer

          Sounds good! He needs to play a bad guy…like now. That puppy look needs to grow some hair!

          I’m hoping the same thing for the female lead!

    Our dear Kaptain A: We are really excited to see your posting on Yan Kuan. He is really an awesome actor with a handsome face at all times. Remember that we are new to Chinese movies and TV shows? Our first exposure to Chinese TV shows with its many episodes were Schemes of Beauty and the Glamorous Imperial Concubine. We highly noted the acting of Kevin Yuan there and we became also his fans. I am thinking that there some fans club here in Canada for Ruby Lin and Kevin . . . What a lovely pair they are! Un par precioso!
    Anyway, thank you so much for this recent post on Kevin; we are wondering for sometime on his updates after the said popular TV series. You filled up our queries on Kevin. We really like him.
    Muchas gracias. Keep up the good work! Mantener el buen trabajo! . .

      I have liked Yan Kuan for a long time now so I do pay attention to what his beautiful face is doing next. 🙂

      You’re welcome!

        Thank you so much, dear Kaptain A; we shared the same love for Kevin Yuan. I hope that more producers and directors will noticed him. He has an acting talent to prove with a handsome personality to show. A good day to kindest regards to you and to your fans, too! Un buena dia y cordiales saludos!
