Add this one to the mix of anticipated Tangren productions! Almost the same cast as Legend of the Nine-Tailed Foxes. Lol. This is what happens when you repetitively use people under the same management. The Legend of Qin is a drama adaptation of a Chinese animated TV series written and directed by Robin Shen (inspired by a novel by Wen Shi Ren). The story follows Tian Ming (Jiang Jin Fu), his best friend, Xiang Shao Yu (Michael Qin Jun Jie) and the heroine, Gao Yue (Hu Bing Qing), as they overcome obstacles during the political unrest leading to the building of the Qin Dynasty and how Emperor King Zheng struggled to unite all 6 nations.
I’m interested to see how the drama remake comes out, mainly because this is one of the few times I have watched the animated version and liked the story and characters. However, it’s so slow in story-telling. T__T We are only on Season 5 of the series.
Jiang Jin Fu as the hero, Tian Ming. In the animation, he’s a teenager, but he’s a young lad in his twenties in the drama. Thank heavens (not that we didn’t expect this. heh)
Michael Qin Jun Jie (Legend of the Ancient Sword) as Xiang Shao Yu, the Prince of a Chu’s royal tribe. His love interest is Shi Lan who doesn’t appear in until Season 4 of the animated series.
Hu Bing Qing (Taekwondo Girl) as the heroine, Gao Yue, a princess of the former Yan Kingdom. She is kidnapped in Season 2 of the series and we only have glimpses of her throughout until her real appearance in Season 5 (2015). She’s specially linked to the Yin and Yang school of magic.
The three trio together.
Lu Yi as one of the greatest swordsmen, Ge Nie, Tian Ming’s father’s best friend.
The wires. hehe.
Michelle Chen plays the doctor in the group, Miss Duan Mu Rong. She’s also Ge Nie’s love person. She belongs to Mohist Sect. She didn’t have much to do in the series because she falls into a coma in the middle of season 2. Lol.
Sun Yi Zhou as Ge Nie’s fellow classmate of the same sect, Wei Zhuang. They’re rivals and he leads a group called Quicksand. Bad boy!
Gina Jin (Wu Xin The Monster Killer) as Chi Lian, Wei Zhuang’s right hand woman. She’s known as the snake lady for being able to control the legless creatures at will. Be prepared to see Gina everywhere in the next couple of months!
Jeremy Qu Zhe Ming as Bai Feng aka White Phoenix.
Two other important players from Mohist Sect. He’s Gao Jian Li played by Sui Yong Liang (Wu Xin The Monster Killer).
Gong Bei Bi (Love Up in The Air) as Xue Nv, elegant and beautiful with silver hair, uses music as her weapon. She and Jian Li are my favorite OTP! Too bad she has black hair in the drama. Sigh ~
Recognize the guy on the left of the old man? Yu Bo is on the far left.
- Lord Gu!! Lord Gu!! HAHAH XD His character has a crush on Mu Rong.
- Directed by Li Guo Li (Sound of the Desert, Wu Xin The Monster Killer), script edited by Xu Yuan, the tentative air date is revealed to be following the slot after Yun Zhong Ge (Song in the Clouds), in December.
