Yang Rong and Yang Xu Wen in Ghost Catcher Zhong Kiu’s Record

For those of you who wonder what Yang Rong is filming that conveniently clashes with Yu Zheng’s drama, it’s fantasy drama, Ghost Catcher Zhong Kiu’s Record (钟馗捉妖记), which started filming on 11/16. Yang Rong’s co-stars are getting younger and younger. Lol. With Bai Yu born in 1989, in this one, Yang Rong will be romancing everyone’s favorite Qing Long gege, Yang Xu Wen, born in 1994. According to Chinese folklore, Zhong Kiu is in charge of relinquishing demons and evil beings. His story is of a sad one. After he passed the imperial examination, he was stripped of the honors for having a disfigured appearance. In anger, he committed suicide at the palace gate and upon meeting the King of Hell, he was granted the power to hunt and capture ghosts, in an effort to keep order. In this new adaptation, Yang Xu Wen takes on the titular role as young Zhong Kiu who is sent down to Earth to experience the turbulence of human life without his memory.

    lol i kind of like how she’s bucking the trend and getting paired with younger co-stars when usually it’s usually actors paired with young actresses.

    Yeah, I don’t remember any of her co-stars that’s NOT younger than her…LOL. But I do think she needs to be picky about her projects though (if she have the choice), if she wants to be able to get into a big production drama.

    Alas, at least she’s still getting lead roles, I mean for this series, they could have picked a newer actress.
    It’ll be extremely frustrating and sad if she finished filming this before Feng Qui Huang even start filming!

    I’m not digging her image. The production looks a bit cheap, too. Yang Rong should be more selective. The plot focuses on the male lead!

    Well Yang Rong can pull it off. She’s a fantastic (and way underrated, not here at AVV, but in general) actress, and she’s gorg. Honestly, she looks so timeless that she can pull off looking younger as well as looking older. Like, some actresses look a certain age, but her beauty is so timeless it doesn’t really matter that much what age she’s supposed to be cuz she always so convincingly is the part.

    Kind of interested in this plot…and the fact that it’s charismatic and very likable Qing Long Ge Ge. Tbh, I was really worried for the new LoCH, but after seeing him in Chusen (with him and LiYing basically as my only motivations for watching) I’m really anticipating him in LoCH and here (even though his look here is…idk enough to say, but suffice to say, it’s not an immediate positive). I actually almost didn’t recognize him in these stills. I’m actually more interested in this than FQH right now. I know I’ve heard FANTASTIC things about Feng Qiu Huang — about the girl and the guy (Rong Zhi is on SO many favorite lists so I know he’s well loved). But honestly, I’ve learned to stay WELL away from Yu Zheng’s adaptations. Like, sometimes his “original” works are hit or miss, but his book/novel adaptations are usually well off the mark. So tbh, if YR was in FQH, I’d definitely watch for her, but now, prob not. Despite the upsetting news, I’m actually not too upset she’s getting away from Yu Zheng stuff.

      She’s a beauty, but her hairstyle and outfits are not doing her justice.

      YR is extremely underrated. You have the less talented actresses taking on lead roles in bigger productions. So, I hope YR will be given more opportunities in the future.

      The actor who portrays Qing Long was charming in Chusen. Good chemistry with ZLY.

    This would be a good time to release official stills of Yang Rong for this drama–while the iron is hot.

    To be honest, I think YR is more sorry about disappointing her fans rather than being sad for herself for the loss of FQH. For anyone who doesn’t know, YR was offered the opportunity to star in Goddess of Mercy starring Zhao Wei and Love Story in Shanghai starring Chen Kun and Zhou Xun way back then, but she turned them down. She has had ample opportunity to grab and shoot to stardom back then, but she chose to do it differently. To this day, she is still asked about these opportunities and she doesn’t regret her choices to let those roles slip through her fingers.

    YR is in fact VERY selective about her roles – even it means that she is not the female lead. This is the reason why she took on Du Xiao Han in Lady and the Liar and why she asked to switch from Xu Ping Jun to Huo Cheng Jun in Yun Zhong Ge. And it is probably the reason why she agreed to film this drama even though the plot focuses on the male lead. For her, being the focus of the story is not important. She wants to learn with every role and that’s why she doesn’t mind playing second lead. She is focused on the actual role rather than the screen time. I am sure that she was looking forward to playing Chu Yu but with her mindset she will probably just look ahead and anticipate other roles. She just doesn’t know how to explain or comfort her fans hence her weibo message: I want to say something, but I don’t know what to say.

      I didn’t know that. She made Huo Cheng Jun come to life!

    Someone left this comment in relation to YR being replaced: “Yang Rong always miraculously avoids the dramas that would make her popular”. I found this strangely funny because it couldn’t be more true.

    She looks so cute with the bun and bangs.

    She is what I call a versatile actress. It’s so hard to find someone who can play evil and good roles equally well. She probably hasn’t met the one work that will make her famous, but that’s okay. We all know she’s an actress we can rely on to do her characters justice.

      There it is. She’s missing a representative work. Maybe it’s just a matter of time. Even Tang Yan just hit it off with Wei Young.

      • 16 thoughts on “Yang Rong and Yang Xu Wen in Ghost Catcher Zhong Kiu’s Record

        Really? Tang yan? I thought she made it since perfect couple with wallace huo. Maybe i was wrong. But wei young makes her name even bigger.

        Goodluck for YR. Since i watched memory lost, i remember her. She was in lady and liar too. Honestly, her acting is better than tang yan or chen qiao en. But then, like you guys said ‘a representative’ character and drama that will boom it. I wish to watch her with wallace huo or chung or hu ge or wang kai. Hehe

        • 16 thoughts on “Yang Rong and Yang Xu Wen in Ghost Catcher Zhong Kiu’s Record

          Though it may be far-fetched, but definitely want to see her with Hu Ge or Wang Kai!!! I think she needs to get away from YZ, then maybe she can finally get that “representative” character and into a big production.

          I haven’t seen Tang Yan in Wei Young yet, but I’ve heard great review on her acting in it. The thing is, Tang Yan was already popular and she have a massive fan base. So, whatever drama she produce it’s always going to be a hit because her millions of fans will watch and help the ratings. Same goes for all the popular actors and actresses, their drama will always be high in rating/viewership even if the drama itself is a mess.

        Tang Yan was already popular, but she was just there. Same with Joe Chen. A lot of positive comments for Tang Yan’s performance in Wei Young. So, I feel that she is now known for her acting.

        Yang Rong is the opposite. Known for her acting rather than popularity.

        It would be nice for Yang Rong to have more versatile partners.

        • 16 thoughts on “Yang Rong and Yang Xu Wen in Ghost Catcher Zhong Kiu’s Record

          If her co-stars keeps getting younger or if she keeps looking younger., we’ll never see her with the mature versatile actors…LOL.

          Haha! Hu Ge is on top of my list!
