I’m back! Not physically (still sitting in the hosp but I have access to a laptop!) I’ll do a detailed write-up later on my brief absence but now it’s time to catch up with the long train of news I left behind. First is the stylish new trailer released this past weekend of Lu Han‘s Fighter of the Destiny (择天记), a novel-to-drama adaptation from author Mao Ni, starring Gulnazar, Janice Wu, Amelie Xu Ling Yue, and Joseph Zeng Shun Xi.
Copying and pasting my translation from before:
Lu Han as Chen Chang Sheng. Abandoned in a flowing river and plucked up by a Taoist monk. He’s actually the fourth Prince of the Chen’s Royal bloodline. He’s plagued with an incurable illness, fated not to live past the age of 20. To find a cure, he leaves his temple, armed with a promise of marriage scroll, to become a student at a famous academy. He meets Xu You Rong and they slowly fall in love after hopping though the trials and tribulations of his journey.
Gulnazar as the female lead, Xu You Rong. A gifted child in the practice of a special magical language? Sorry I lost it at this point, all the magical voodoo vocab. She likes archery and hates nuisance.
Janice Wu as Luo Luo. Princess of adorableness. After being saved once by the male lead, she calls him Shifu and follows him into the academy.
Amelie Xu Ling Yue.
Joseph Zeng Shun Xi. The hero’s best friend.
Chen Shu looking regal and glorious.
- The trailer doesn’t tell it much else about the plot except that it’s crispy clean and very pretty to look at. Everyone is flawless head to toe, no complaints from me!
