“Yumama: I love me some pretty! I got me some pretty!” by Kap
Call me what you like but when this republican fantasy drama, Demon Girl, produced by Yu Zheng comes out, I’m watching it! The amount of pretty onscreen is sparkling and endless and you know how easy it is to convince me. Lol. But some of the comments on weibo killed me. “What the hell is this drama about?” “How is it that he keeps adding people?” “Who are the leads again?” I also laughed so hard at how fast Yumama snatched the rising new face of Johnny Huang Jing Yu from the webdrama Heroine and added him just like that. He just had his costume fitting today, joined by two other new faces. Not only are we getting new pretty people to look at, Yumama also has a bevy list of solid actors as guest stars.
What I know of the storyline so far, translated by moi: During the late Qing Dynasty, Empress Dowager Cixi presents a painting of a girl with wings to Consort Jin (Viann Zhang), hoping that finding the girl in the painting could change the impending fate of the Qing Dynasty. Hence, Ady An enters the picture and she’s a butterfly demon. She falls in love with Cixi’s bodyguard (Wang Mao Lei) and gives birth to two daughters. When attacks threaten the forbidden city, Ady’s forced to show her demon form to protect her family, rendering herself into a glass doll as a result. The whole event is witnessed by Professor Jiang (?). Fifteen years later, her daughters (Li Yi Tong and Angel Cheng Zi Ning) are all grown up, unaware of their half-human, half demon background (amnesia aka emotional trauma blocking past memories.) They befriend Professor Jiang’s daughter (He Rui Xian) and a suave wealthy man (Zhang Zhe Han), beginning the tumultuous love story between human and demon.
Compiled Stills So Far:
The three new faces that Yumama adds today are from left to right: Johnny Huang, Wu Jia Yi, and Song Wei Long (he was a guest star in Run for Time Ep.6, signed under Yu Zheng Studio). A handsome kid and as tall as everyone’s Gu Hai! 😛
Hong Kong actor, Steven Ma. How did Yu get him??!
Our butterfly demon with elf ears. Don’t ask me why. But I really love the rich colors of these upcoming stills.
Ady An and Wang Mao Lei.
The golden tragedies on their heads… Oh la la.
Zhang Zhe Han looking quite dashing in uniform!
Li Yi Tong looking feisty as she discovers her demon instincts. Looking good mam.
Our OTP sizzling together.
Merxat as a half-human-half-demon emotionless boy whose heart is warmed by the heroine. She’s described like sunshine to him. He’s willing to do anything for her and not claiming any credit in return. I think he looks more like a vampire with the black cape and all. Lol.
Our heroine’s dad.
Yep. Joe Xu Hai Qiao is also in here!
Liu Min playing our hero’s mom.
I swear I thought she built a candy land on her head. XD
Girl in the black leather jacket is Adi Han Qing Zi and the girl being embraced is Xu Xiao Nuo.
Dai Xiang Yu.
