Whatttt. This woman. Her management company must be the best of the best. She gets all the good actors as her partners just when they hit it big too! If you’ve been following this blog, you would know that fantasy novel, Ghost Blows Out the Light, written by Zhang Mu Ye has been receiving a lot of attention. It has two movie adaptations within this year and as I called it back in May, the drama adaptation is here! Confirmed leads are Jin Dong (Nirvana in Fire) and Chen Qiao En (Destined to Love You). It’s categorized as a web drama and will start filming in March 2016, yunno after she romances Jin Dong’s acting child, Nick Wang in Tong Hua’s drama. LOL.
To prepare for the role, Qiao En has bought the novel and is ready to familiarize herself with the characters and storyline. She expresses high praises for her partner, Jin Dong, but he honestly apologizes and says that he rarely watches her works. Lol. He does hope that they can skip the get-to-know-each-stage period and get right into characters. Jin Dong will be playing Hu Ba Yi (roles previously played by Chen Kun and Mark Zhao), and Qiao En will be playing Shirley Yang (previously played by Shu Qi and Yao Chen). She was raised in America and returns to China when her father went missing while exploring tombs. Together with Ba Yi and his friend, they recruit a team of brave individuals to search the tombs and unleash the darkness from each one.
Photobomb time! First up is Chen Qiao En looking sleek in professional suits.
Then it’s Jin Dong and Nick Wang on a show called Day Day Up. They are adorable together.
Short Clip of the show below. Full show here. The segment that got the girls screaming non-stop is when they asked the boys to re-enact the classic wear-your-coat scene from The Disguiser (~2:27). Chow Yun Fat should be the standard!! XD But Jin Dong looks smoking hot in his plain white shirt and coat. Fabulous. They also show a clip of Nick Wang singing and dancing back in 2008. hahah!
The drama will be directed by Wang Tao and written by Bai Yi Cong (The Lost Tomb). Oh boy. Should I be worried?
