Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

Lie Huo Ru Ge (The Flame’s Daughter, 烈火如歌) is the drama adaptation of Ming Xiao Xi‘s novel, who also wrote Summer’s Desire and Taekwondo Girl. After confirming the female lead as Dilraba Dilmurat in December, more names are dropped a few hours ago, and curiously, two are from Yang Mi’s studio (*wink wink*) and currently in Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossom. Still waiting on confirmation. But isn’t it funny how Yang Mi is entangled with the male leads from Taiwanese drama Black and White? First she’s romancing Mark Zhao, now her sister might take Vic Zhou. XD

Casting:

Dilraba Dilmurat.

Potential Casing and Roles: The story focuses on a lively and passionate Ru Ge (Dilraba, confirmed), heir to a big estate, and her entangled love with three men in her life. Lol. One enters a life of immortality just for the chance of meeting her again, yet he’s cursed with an unrequited love forever (Xue – Vic Zhou). Another is a gentle, loving, crippled man who eventually loses most of his senses (Yu – Liu Rui Lin). Lastly is an arrogant man who is her first love and also the one to break her heart (Feng – Zhang Bin Bin).

Sounds crazy just from a few words. XD

      But I think they have a historical drama together. Probably going to come out next year.

    LOL is Zhang Bin Bin going to be the 2nd lead again? & Dilraba is doing so well lately. She’s literally everywhere.

    Wait. Any book lovers. Please please please tell me who the final OTP is. Please?

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      Checked the last chapter. Someone exploded. Someone technically die but is not dead. And someone’s soul resides in another person. But for sure, our female lead is alive at the very last part of the chapter ?
      As for OTP… I’m not sure on this, the female lead isn’t so straight-foward… what a player 😛 Aha~ But to the guys it is obvious who she likes in the end

        Is it xue? I heard the drama plot might spin. into some revenge and misunderstanding like thing with a potentially reunion happy like ending? Can’t believe the auhtor went from writing Takewondo Girl to this or back lol

        • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

          Honestly, when skimming the last chapter, I was like O_O the whole time. Goodness, this author’s works are not my cup of tea.

          SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER PLEASE DON’T READ BELOW IF YOU DONT LIKE SPOILER

          Can’t really do spoiler tag since I’m not sure spoiler tags work here?
          —————————————————————————————————————————————————–
          Anyhow ,
          The female lead shielded herself for one of the guys (either Xue or Feng… I’m thinking Feng), but I think one of the guys saved her and she discovered she miraculously survived. When she thought she was dying, she regretted that she cannot fulfill her promise of building a bamboo house for Yu ge.
          The last scene with the female lead is with Brother Yu (he’s like an elder disciple), but like his actions and words are so different and seem like a different person. Ru Ge was like “who are you?” The story ended like that.
          Turns out Xue’s soul dispersed and he decided to go into Yu’s body. Yu has some type of illness that is slowly deteriorating him and with Xue’s soul, Yu’s body is alive. In this way, Xue gets to stay with Ru Ge while in the body of Yu.
          As for Feng, after he was saved, he was going to visit Ru Ge and Yu (now Xue), but saw they were happy and did not disturbed.
          ….
          Basically Zhang Bin Bin is still the second lead ish lol.

          Thanks for the ending summary @ ChocolateCosmos. I’m not keen on this author’s works either. Her stories are always self-insert Mary Sue protagonist with a male harem.

          I hope ZBB’s role in this is at least an interesting character.

          *********************************************************SPOILER*******************************************************
          That’s actually a pretty creepy ending. Taking over someone else’s body to be with the girl…

    Disappointed…I heard from somewhere else that Vengao was going to be part of this ….. (can never have even DH and FJ) , shes already going to be OTP with Zhang Bin Bin in the King Loves, don’t want him to steal my OTP again XP

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      Zhang Binbin has the talent to back it up though!!!! He’s always consistently good no matter what the role is.

      I’m tring to be nice but Vengo…ranges. A lot.

      • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

        @ jen: That’s one of reasons I’m loving ZBB. He is very talented and does a lot with every role. I’m really impressed by the fact that he is a bit of a chameleon which is rare with the new crop of popular actors. A lot of them basically look pretty playing the same character in different costumes. But just in the last six months he’s shown a lot of versatility and range looking at the contrast between KO in “Just One Smile…”, Lin Yi Mu in Pretty Li Hui Zhen and Li Jing in “Three Lives”.

        • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

          I agree! I’ve been super impressed. He is very versatile.

          I think if his role with Vengo had been switched in 3 Lives the character of Li Jing would have been far less sympathetic, since in the novel he was nowhere near as likeable. ZBB’s expressions was the big difference…he is so good at showing a range of emotions, and made Li Jing a very conflicted, sad character, much more 3D. And he just comes across so natural.

          He is definitely one of the most talented fresh meats! And super sexy to boot. I’m excited to see him get the leads in all due time!

    Crying… Is ZBB second lead again? I feel like his agency are wasting Zhang Bin Bin in thankles second lead roles. He is so charismatic and talented not to mention handsome. He even has amazing chemistry with Dilraba! Hoping he gets more recognition soon. I am really looking forward to ‘The King’s Woman’!

    Does anyone know if this is modern or a costume drama?

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      It’s an ancient drama.

      Zhang Bin Bin is only getting more popular. Yang Mi sees his popularity too. 😉

      • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

        Thanks for the response, Kappy.

        I’m glad Zhang Bin Bin is getting more popular. I hope Yang Mi allows him to branch out so he can play better and better roles both internally and externally from the company..

      • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

        I feel like Yang Mi must be the best boss in the world. Her 幂家军 kiddos all look so happy

        • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

          She is. Not only the best boss, but a real, treasured friend. Everyone who has worked with her compliments her to the ninth. Especially with Liu Shi Shi, who YM takes care like a little sister, even though she’s only 1 year older. She loves Dilraba like her baby sister too and it shows.

          Yang Mi might look unapproachable at first, but I feel she’s the type of friend to stick it out for you until the very end.

  6. 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

    At this point though I would really like to see ZBB as the main in a drama without Dilraba for a change. Nothing against Dilraba cause she’s pretty awesome. But this would be the third partnering of them and it’s getting kind of stale, IMO.

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      It’ll be interesting if they end up being the 2nd coming of Luo Jin and Tang Yan xD

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      I’m actually looking forward to their pairings. They were awesome together in Pretty Li Hui Zhen. They are both good actors and work very well together. Their characters have very different dynamics in the three dramas so I’ll be interested to see how they play it. I’m looking forward to ‘The King’s Woman’ the most of course!

  7. 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

    Count me as a new fan of Zhang Bin Bin. Really loved him in Pretty Li Hui Zhen….and I didn’t think I could love that character any more than I did in the Korean version. China is really upping their drama game. I find myself gravitating to more and more of their dramas lately.

    I also love Zai Zai. he was in one of the first non Korean dramas that I watched. Mars. I remember I had to hunt the episodes down on YouTube and daily motion.

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      Yes ZBB was so good in Pretty Li Hui Zhen. He, his relationship and chemistry with Dilraba and the rest of the supporting cast really made the adaptation for me because I did not buy into the loveline between the leads at all.

      China is really upping it’s game with dramas. I think they were shaken by the popularity of the glossy K-dramas. Comparing the visual quality of dramas from just 3 years ago and now the difference is huge.

      Mars! I only found out there was a live action Taiwanese version last year and marathoned it on YT. I read the manga first and Vic and Barbie Hsu were just right! I was so overjoyed there was a Taiwanese live action drama which meant that we got real kisses lol!

      • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

        Oh Mars. I think I need to rewatch. All I remember was the quiet and thoughtful ambiance and the quiet but still sizzling chemistry between Barbie and Vic. Good times.

    ZBB also has this smoldering masculinity that is kind of refreshing in Asian actors. Not that most of the fresh meat aren’t good to look at but they are pretty and pretty feminine quite a bit of the time. It explains why the sci fi author Liu Cixin imagined men looking identical to women in the future in his Three Body Problem series.

    Regardless, ZBB is a diamond in the not very rough and I hope that he will get the Yang Yang treatment in the very near future (i.e good roles and tons of product deals so that we can see him everywhere–the western world needs a great deal more pretty to look at :P)!

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      Word! I love that he’s the manly type – face and body. HEHE. =D

  9. 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

    Seeing all this love for Zhang Bin Bin makes me happy! He IS no doubt one of the more talented, charismatic and versatile up and coming actors. Many of you may be thinking poor ZBB getting the second lead male again imo it’s not necessarily a bad thing tho. Sometimes, I find actors with potential who get shoved into center stage too quickly tends to work against them.

    Anyway, I wish a bright future for this promising young man !

  10. 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

    I thought, ZBB once had the male lead character in his hand. I forgot what drama but i remember watching him ans falling for him. Especially his eyes. Seems like they talk to me lols.

    I am super glad that everybody likes him.

    I havent watch she was pretty C-version, is it worth watching? If yes, i’ll give it a try after ten miles.

    Correct me, Yang Mi is Tang Yan’s bestie right? She has face and class. And if only she and mark havent got married, i’d like to ship them haha… Kidding.
    I reapect someone like her. Being a boss and a friend at the same time.

    Btw it’s her own studio or her hubby? So they have their ‘own’ studio???

    • 30 thoughts on “Lie Huo Ru Ge’s Male Cast Rumor: Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, Liu Rui Lin

      Yes Pretty Li Huizhen is very much worth watching. I liked it better than She Was Pretty. It has it’s flaws but I thought it ended up being sweeter and more heartfelt than SWP. Also, much like Choi Siwon, Zhang BinBin completely stole the show! And he didn’t have to leave immediately for the military, this blunting any career momentum the role gave him.

    I hope Vengo will play the role of Xue. I like ZBB and he has decent chemistry with Dilabra, but to me, she has the best chemistry with Vengo. Considering the fact that they have no intimate scenes and the chemistry is still off the chart, they need to be otp again. To me Vengo did an absolutely awesome job as DH immortal and mortal. He needs more chance to be the lead.
