If they keep the soundtrack from the anime, I think this webdrama will be all set! It’s so good to jam to. Rakshasa Street (镇魂街) is the drama adaptation of a manhua starring Jiro Wang (Looking for Aurora) and An Yue Xi (Tornado Girl 2) as the leads in a supernatural modern world where there’s hell and heaven, and the in-between dimension. What is causing me to side eye this production is the lack of a child actor to play Jiro’s adorable, beyond-his-age, brother! WHERE!? I saw the stills of the brothers when they were younger but nothing when Jiro is playing the adult role. Please don’t remove that aspect. I love the brotherhood!
Character Descriptions and Stills:
Our male lead, Cao Yan Bing (Jiro Wang). He comes from a family of guardian generals and was born with a guardian spirit or so we thought (Lol). His younger brother wasn’t born with one and their parents consider that a freedom, a blessing. Not long after his brother was born, his parents were called away and never came back. We learned later in the story that they were killed, leaving the defenseless kids to fend for themselves; being sold, being beaten, being separated. All I have to say is adversity makes a hero and it’s the case here for both brothers as they grow stronger to protect their home in Rakshasa Street.
Our heroine, Xia Ling (An Yue Xi), is a fresh graduate out of college and looking for jobs. When she receives a text message for an interview late at night at a street called Rakshasa, she rushes out, and belatedly realizes how weird it is for a company to interview so late (she’s desperate for a job). It’s too late now and she has crossed into a transitional dimension, the bridge between the human realm and hell, where spirits are kept until they are sanctioned. There are many streets like this and each street has a guardian general, guarding the place. At Rakshasa Street, it’s the turf of two brothers – Cao Yan Bing (older) and Cao Xuan Liang, presumably are descendants of Cao Cao.
