New Madame White Snake confirms Yang Zi, Ren Jia Lun, Mao Zi Jun

GAH. I know I laugh about the package deal before but this is getting a bit ridiculous. When you enter a new production, do you want to see the same faces for 4 consecutive times? New Madame White Snake (天乩之白蛇传说) held its booting ceremony this morning and it’s led by Yang Zi (not present), Allen Ren Jia Lun, Mao Zi Jun, and He Du Juan (The Good Fellas, The Gods).

The story is based on Chinese folk legend, Legend of the White Snake, a love story between a snake-turned-lady Bai Su Zhen and scholar Xu Xian. After being fed an immortal pill, little white snake wants to return the favor to the humble scholar and turns herself into a human girl. In her quest, she also befriends a green snake called Xiao Qing. Bai Su Zhen meets the scholar again in human form and falls in love with him. Troubles come their way when the jealous turtle turned into a relentless monk Fa Hai, hellbent on ruining Su Zhen’s happiness, appears. He feeds Su Zhen a concoction, forcing her to reveal her true snake form to her husband, and it shocks him to death. Thus begins White snake’s journey in reviving her husband and constant running from Fa Hai. [More details.] (I have to say I didn’t know Fa Hai is actually a jealous turtle turned monk who didn’t get a piece of the immortal pill.) It actually explains the meaning behind a slow turtle really well. XD

    For a moment I thought Mao Zijun was the one dating Yang Zi. How many productions have they been in together already?

      Lol. Yang Zi is dating Qin Jun Jie. Mao Zi Jun is the common denominator in all four series with variations of the package deals (Yang Zi, Shu Chang, Qin Jun Jie, Allen).

    Sigh. Oh Mao Zi Jun… When are you ever going to get to play the lead role…? I’ve been smitten by him since Gong (where he was the adorable 14th Prince), and been waiting for him to snatch onto a GOOD lead role…. But I guess it’s not going to come anytime soon…. T_T

    It’s okay, Kap, as long as all four series don’t air at the same time. That kind of package is a no thanks from me lol.

      They will air back to back. Lol! After Chusen, then Glory, Dragon Pearl in May, and this White Snake might air sometime later. XD

      I need to see them with new people! Sigh ~

    Same casts again? Common! I like Yangzi a lot but this is kind of getting ridiculous. I hope it doesn’t air all at the same time. How come they always cast MZJ as baddie. Wih the producer could give him a break. He is too handsome to be a villain. Aiyah ya….

    I like Yang Zi and all but I’m not sure about her as White Snake…I guess since she could play Xue Qi she would be able to play White Snake.

    I knew about the turtle being jealous, it was covered in a cartoon I watched from ages ago, I went looking for the original story to check if it was true.

    I believe in this one he falls in love with her and becomes jealous that she loves her hubby.

    I was really looking forward to Rachel Mao as Green Snake…I’ll deal.
