Yu Zheng confirms Merxat as Rong Zhi in Feng Qiu Huang

Well, Yang Rong finally has her male lead for the upcoming drama adaptation of novel Feng Qiu Huang (凤囚凰) written by Tian Yi You Feng. It’s actor Merxat, one of Yu Zheng’s well-known group of pretty talents. You might remember him most recently in Memory Lost and Demon Girl. Feng Qiu Huang follows the story of a modern girl who wakes up one day and finds herself in the body of Liu Chu Yu, a princess of the Liu Song Dynasty. The princess is known for telling her younger brother, Emperor Qianfei, about the unfairness in his harem verses hers, at which he granted her thirtysomething male concubines. That sounds awesome… only now our heroine has to finds way to survive, knowing that history isn’t on her brother’s side (he’s overthrown). Dun dun dun!!!

Stills:

One of his first revealed look as Rong Zhi, our male lead, one of the heroine’s mysterious concubines. What I read from fans’ comments is that he likes to scheme and is very sly. He looks the part!

        He is sly but doesn’t show it…infact he is supposed to look carefree and indifferent. ..at least the 1st part of the story

    So I have nothing against this guy and I’ve heard some good things about this acting. But he’s going to have to face a lot of pressure from book fans ’cause Rong Zhi is almost on every ranking for historical fiction romance male leads. It’s not an easy character to play.

    Now let’s see who will join the rest of the harem.

    I’ll be sitting back with popcorn in hand to see the hot mess that Yu Zheng created when he posted that picture of him and Zhu Yi Long PLUS that famous quote about Rong Zhi that ultimately led fans to misunderstand. Looks like it’s just one of Yu Zheng’s douchebag moves in getting publicity for his productions. Tsk, tsk.

      What happened with Zhu Yi Long?!?!?! Was he supposed to be in this drama????

        It hasn’t been confirmed but there’s speculation that Zhu Yi Long had auditioned for the lead role. Yu Zheng’s post was very misleading or telling, however one wants to interpret it. Then Yu Zheng revealed his decision in a long essay about how he has been studying this book for three years now and he feels that a sunny guy can’t play a character like Rong Zhi who is like the moon. He mentioned that one of his stylists recommended Merxat and voila he “suddenly” had a revelation of sorts. How he could have missed his own guy Merxat is beyond me.

        Personally Zhu Yi Long is a sunny guy in real life but he’s proven himself to be capable of playing villainous roles. So I don’t know what kind of BS Yu Zheng was trying to pull there with that excuse.

          Totally agree with you! So sad that Yang Rong and Zhu Yi long aren’t going to reunite soon… I think they had really good chemistry in their previous drama and was looking forward to them doing another drama together. T_T

          Hopefully, Zhu Yi Long gets cast in another good drama, soon. I really like him!!!

    Is that T? Oh man, I hope he does this character well cuz all I can see now is his oddly calm killer image. I don’t remember if I looked at the other article, is he supposed to play her brother or Yang Rong’s main lover?

    Yumama is a such a tease ;_; I was all excited for Zhu Yi Long :\
    Merxat is okay but I have not thought of him as Rong Zhi before. With Merxat you get that “killer” edge from him or “sharpness” whereas Rong Zhi is more “gentle” outwardly to mask his hidden agenda.

    This is interesting…
    News was that investors didn’t like YZ’s choice in Merxat as Rong Zhi, so he might need to search for another actor! Also, I went to search for YZ’s weibo post about Merxat’s confirmation and I think YZ deleted it…
