Lol. Princess Wei Young has taken over the weekend! Anyhoo, Yang Yang‘s next anticipated drama, Martial Universe, adapted from a xianxia novel Wu Dong Qian Kun (武动乾坤) written by Tian Can Tu Dou, has officially began filming today 11/14/16 with its confirmed cast members. Ohhhhh. The pretty cast members. *___*
UPDATE (11/15/16): Regarding the issues with Gina Vs Tian Ai. Read what ZTA’s studio has to say and let’s move on from this noisy topic.
Yang Yang as Lin Dong, as child regarded as untalented by his clan, who’s destined for greater things. His family is banished from the Great Lin Clan, and his journey to avenge for his defenseless father after obtaining a mysterious Stone Talisman.
Zhang Tian Ai plays Ying Huan Huan. Seems like there’s a change-and-switch of characters. Yang Yang’s character love two girls in the novel. I already read a flaming candle (hint: female leads war, remember Chusen?) and sometimes, ignorance is bliss!
With Taiwanese actor, Wu Chun (Kindaichi Case Files), to play Yang Yang’s adversary.
Ashton Chen Xiao Long as Little Flame, one with a special body, giving him the ability to merge into any bloodline. YAY!! I’m extremely happy for him!!
The boys. ;] I won’t fight for the popular boy. Just leave Ashton to me!
Wang Li Kun! WHOA. She plays the other female love interest, Ling Qing Zhu.
Dong Qing. She was in Liu Hao Ran’s With You.
Li Xin Liang (Royal Highness, My Amazing Boyfriend).
Chart of Confirmed Cast.
Booting/Blessing Ceremony Video:
- After Yang Yang finished his round, Crystal motioned for Wu Chun to go first. Lol. That quick dance of you-go-first-no-you-go-first.
- Well, well, well, since our resident trouble-maker already revealed what happened between Gina and Tian Ai. It has become a heated war between the fans. Very similar to Chusen‘s initial battle (even the character’s ending sounds the exact replica!) I dislike when the fans of two actresses I like argue back and forth like this because we always know only one side of the argument. Gina’s poetic line on weibo on the day of the blessing ceremony is some fighting words.
- The root of evil began with Tian Ai’s sudden change of character from Ling Qing Zhu to Ying Huan Huan. Remember when I said Gina Jin was rumored to partake? She was rumored to play Ying Huan Huan, while Tian Ai was officially announced as Ling Qing Zhu. But of course, this is all rumor until Gina’s weibo post, suggesting that she isn’t interested in fighting for the role!
- Others are saying she did so to promote her upcoming drama, Legend of Ace, premiering on 11/28. Director Zhang Li said yesterday that “Ying Huan Huan in the end sacrifices her whole life for him [male lead], so this character is very significant. We considered very carefully and think that no one else is more compatible than Tian Ai. Such character requires immense inner strength and I believe Tian Ai will fulfill this role.”
- Oy, Headaches!
- On 11/15/16 Tian Ai’s studio puts out a notice [here]: Zhang Tian Ai’s Studio officially comes out to say that Tian Ai signed with the production team back in May and it clearly states that she’ll play the female lead. As a professional actor, Tian Ai wholeheartedly respects and accepts the arrangement made by the director and production team. They will pursue legal actions against those who want to tarnish Tian Ai’s name.
