Martial Universe (Wu Dong Qian Kun) drama begins casting calls

EEEE!! I’m getting shivers at the casting invites they just rolled out. Martial Universe (武动乾坤), along with Legend of the Ancient Sword 2 (古剑奇谭2) will be the two bigger productions this winter. Wu Dong Qian Kun is a xianxia novel written by Tian Can Tu Dou, following the story of one boy, whose family is banished from the Great Lin Clan, and his journey to avenge for his defenseless father after obtaining a mysterious Stone Talisman. Production to begin in October.

The production calls for three main males and two main females. Casting calls have been rolled out to the following:

Yang Yang. I have no doubts he’s been invited to play the main male lead, Lin Dong. A child regarded as untalented by his clan, who’s destined for greater things.

Leo Wu Lei. Yay! Possible reunion of the Taekwondo bromance? =D I’m thinking he’s playing Prince of sky marten race.

Liu Hao Ran. Rounding out the bromance, possibly playing Little Flame, one with a special body, giving him the ability to merge into any bloodline.

Where to Read the Translated Novel?
01. Wuxiaworld has translated 500 chapters so far: http://www.wuxiaworld.com/wdqk-index/
02. For fans of Manhua, you can read it here: http://www.mangareader.net/wu-dong-qian-kun/1/3

After seeing the potential male leads, I can’t imagine the female actresses they are intending to invite? These boys all have baby faces! Who do you think would fit the bill?

      Maybe Janice Wu, or even the sweet girl in Nirvana and Ode to Joy (big eyes, large glasses one), maybe Yang Zi (? she looks younger and sweeter when she smiles, not like her character Xue Qi…I don’t dislike Xue Qi, but her look there wouldn’t really fit these baby faces), Maybe Seven? But her look isn’t as fit for Xianxia. Maybe the new Bai Cao (who played the very adorable Tang Bao)…

        Oh yes! Janice! Totally forgot about her! Let’s add Rachel to the mix and I’m good with this cast. XD

          I am totally in agreement about Rachel. 😀

      Stop bragging about being young, miss! Lol. I don’t think I can read more than 100 chapters either….

      looks wise, Ouyang Nana would fit, but honestly her acting is kind of…terrible. I do love her, and her bubbly personality works in reality shows, but in acting, it ends up being one-dimensional, flat, and exaggerated even though it’s really just her personality. So even though physically she’d be a fantastic choice for the baby faces, I really hope she doesn’t get a role.

        Agree with you on Nana. She is adorable but her acting needs a lot of work. I’m watching her drama with Chen Xuedong right now and her acting is terrible. She’s only 16 so she has plenty of time, but she can’t start with big roles and work backwards especially since her acting is this bad. I’d like to see her in a smaller role first.

    Ruo Bai and Yi Feng reunion please! I loved them in Whirlwind Girl.

    I’m curious about Legend of the Ancient Sword 2 instead. What is the story about ? Baili Tusu was already gone ??

    Anyway, I’ve been waiting to see YY in ancient series again. I hope I’m gonna like it this time.., the Four just wasn’t my taste

    i’m surprised! Wu Dong is having a drama first and not Doupo Cangqiong, the novel which made the writer famous (i think).. his novels are notoriously long though, the drama may have to cut some of the contents i guess. After Doupo i have fear of reading anything by him, because they are all so long~~~ will be keeping an eye on the drama!

    Am I the only clueless one here? Does anyone know what Sephora product Liu Hao Ran is holding in the last pic? Lip color? They looked too dark to be other things, I deduced. At first I thought they were Godiva type candies. For some reason, I can never develop interest in shopping or makeup. But why let a young guy hold lip colors?

    I agree with chasingpolaris and Julianne Lin. For Taiwanese artists, sometimes they can get by by just being friendly, nice, act cute. Like Gui Gui. Sometimes Ivy Chen and others. But I agree Nana is still very young. I read that she’s a great cellist? It’s hard when they are in a high number of series, making many drama hard to watch.

    Polaris, the plot for Mr Fashion isn’t the greatest. It’s similar to teen Disney movies with Anne Hathaway.

      Those are cream blushes. Male celebrities in Asia endorse products targeted for women regularly e.g. Lee Min Ho for Etude House so Liu Haoran with Sephora blushes isn’t surprising. I didn’t know Sephora has stores in Asia though.

      I agree with you on Mr. Fashion. It’s juvenile and very predictable, yet I am still watching every episode.

      Can’t wait to see which actresses they’ll invite for this epic project.

    Please choose someone younger than Yang Yang to be his love interest. I’ll jump for joy if they pich Hua Bing Qing. These two need to be reunited after unsatisfied ending of Tornado Girl 1.

    Aww yay would be good to see WU Lei again.

    I feel like Yang Yang is perfect for xianxia dramas XP

    For the female cast, yess to the above comments suggesting Janice Wu, Rachel Mao and Qiao Xin!
