Ice Fantasy’s first trailer runs high with wars and hidden motives

Finally something other than stills!

Some of the these stills have been revealed before… why so stingy production?

Quick Synopsis of the book I have written before: The story is about the Empire of Snow (Ice Tribe) and the battle between the two brothers for the throne. After a fatal war with the Fire Tribe, only older Bro, Ka Suo (William Feng), and younger brother, Ying Kong Shi (Ma Tian Yu), survive among the siblings. To hide the last blood of the Ice Tribe, the brothers are sent to the mortal realm for 30 years. There, Ka Suo continues to practice his power on a smaller scale. As an illusionist, he is able to create ice sculptures out of water and sell them to make a living.

The day they return to their kingdom, Ka Suo meets the first woman he loves – Li Luo, she’s a top sorceress of her generation. He asks for her hand in marriage but his royal father refuses to bless him because as future King of the Snow Tribe, his queen has to be a pure blood, and only mermaids of the Sea Palace are qualified to marry into the Royal Family. Without a leaving a trace behind, the top sorceress disappears, believed to have been buried under the ice bed deep in the Empire of Snow.

But what Royal father doesn’t know is…his older son does not want to become King. His younger brother, whose innocent smile bears an wickedness that can’t be described, desires the throne instead. In their world, power is measured through the length of their silver/white hair, and little bro repeatedly announces that he’s the better candidate for King because his power/hair has surpassed that of his older brother’s. When the astrologers try to read into Shi’s future, all of them have died, with the exception of one (Xing Jiu).

Above is only the outline of the novel, the drama will be making additions and changes accordingly.

    ROFLMAO WTF is this shitty LOTR cosplay in the trailer? I look at it and I see cheap-ass Mordor / Battle of the Five Armies ripoff and just awful, awful fake wigs and Halloween dress up costumes. I can’t even look at the ears with a straight face OMG

    Ma Tianyu is gorgeous though so there’s that 🙂

    I think Im done complaining about the lotr similarities since its done on purpose by Dan himself. We cant criticize it too much now.

    As long as the story is different , Im okay.

    Well, there’s ice and fantasy, that’s for sure.
    Will watch, if only for the ever pretty sephiroth-like MTY.God, this man is gorgeous <3 .
    Buuut lool at the ugly CGI and Victoria using guns. Rly?! :))
    That said, it looks waaay better than I expected, so that's a plus.
    On the other hand, some of the interactions look really awkward even from the limited shots in the trailer and I wish they used different music.

      Glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed the pistols. They’re very…hmm…out of context?

        yes, they are, but may be the writer of this story has a veeeeery broad definition of “fantasy”. Like, if you put it somewhere in the title you can throw in whatever anachronistic elements you desire (firearms, lotr clothes, etc.) I hope they bother to make it look believable when we see the final product.

      The scenes don’t look epic enough for the music.

        I doubt this in the OST of the drama at all. HQG did something similar when they released their long trailer. The first music they used in the trailer gave the story a certain dark feeling which later became too cute and happy with the actual soundtrack.

    I thought Li Sheng supposed to be in this drama as well. Where is she?

      Either it’s a mistake or she plays a minor role with no official stills of her own.
