Yu Zheng’s Demon Girl adds new face Johnny Huang Jing Yu


“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! 😛

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.

    I’m with you on this Kap. The posters and stills look too good not to watch! 😀

      Even if the plot doesn’t make sense, Yumama’s projects are usually strangely addicting. X)

    On your Heroin post, I remembered making a comment about some of the (fresh-faced) actors rising and spreading their wings. I’m so glad I wasn’t wrong. Johnny will capture a lot of women’s (an maybe men’s) hearts!

    I heard he’s playing a cameo role though, so it’ll be a brief appearance?

    • 15 thoughts on “Yu Zheng’s Demon Girl adds new face Johnny Huang Jing Yu

      Yes, only a cameo. Yu Zheng’s dramas are known as launching vehicles for new faces. 🙂

    Hi, thank you very much for the news. 🙂 I’m very happy for Johnny. 🙂 I also read that Johnny will act in a movie called 《孤芳不自赏》 with AngelaBaby, do you if it’s a true news or not?

      I’ve read of that news. Very likely as he attended AB’s birthday the other night. Just waiting for confirmation.

    Looks good, but honestly I’ve given up on trying to remember what characters and roles everyone’s playing. I mean, I think I got the basics down, but…all those actors and actresses. And lol, I now remember Li Yi Tong as main girl, but hilarious how there’s like, no info on her sister (well, her character’s sister…). Like, who are hotties Dai Xiang Yu and Hai Qiao playing again? (btw small typo, nothing serious, but it’s “Dai” Xiang Yu not “Dao” :D)

      I won’t beat myself over everyone’s bio. Too many. Lol. An element of mystery sometimes helps the series. Dai Xiang Yu is playing some sort of vampire/demon hunter. Joe Xu is a painter-turned-lawyer with eyes for Professor Jiang’s daughter.

    Is it just me or does this look like a Chinese version of Twilight? o_O

    Wow at the extensive cast! That girl in black, Adi Han Qing Zi looks hot 😀

    Came here for Johnny though, hahaha. He has totally captured me in his web series, Heroin. Damn, he’s rising fast!

    Yu Zheng, when he is not trying to copying someone is crazy good. He has such a creative person. I will definitely watch this drama. Never seen anything like this before. Looks sells. He definitely filled this drama with lots of pretty faces both male/female.

    • 15 thoughts on “Yu Zheng’s Demon Girl adds new face Johnny Huang Jing Yu

      Yep! If he only pours his creativity into new projects and not remaking old Wuxia stories, our health will be good. 😉

    I don’t understand what the psters of the two girls making out has to do with anything.

    The gal in the black leather has the same styling/makeup one of Fan Bingbing’s photoshoots.
