Drama Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost confirms Yang Zi and Deng Lun

Well, after a long wait, our OTP is confirmed! Yang Zi reunites with old friend Deng Lun! They were a couple in Flowers in Fog. Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost (香蜜沉沉烬如霜) is the drama adaptation of the same-name novel written by Dian Xian. It follows our naive heroine (but with funny antics, I read), daughter of the Flower Goddess and Water Deity, who’s fed an unfeeling pill while two sons of the Heavenly King fall head-over-heels in love with her. Her mother, the Flower Goddess, doesn’t want her daughter to be like her – afflicted and tormented by love, hence she feeds her little daughter the unfeeling pill before she dies. Family history of both sides doesn’t help; with the Heavenly Empress full of jealousy and considers the Flower Goddess her love rival. Our male lead is the second son of the Heavenly King, known as the most beautiful of the six realms. His brother, described as calming, actually has an underbelly of schemes and uses the heroine to his advantage, successfully making her believe the hero killed her dad. With vengence in mind, she drives the knife into the hero’s heart, killing him on the spot. As she watches him fade away, he asks whether she has ever loved him, and she gives him a heartbreaking no. He vanishes into thin air and it’s that moment when she throws up the unfeeling pill, all bottled-up emotions flow through, opening her heart and eyes to the feelings of love. Thus begins her journey to revive him but he’s become the high and mighty Demon Lord. Dun Dun Dun!!

Without revealing the ending, thats the detailed synopsis I got from reading the first five chapters. The beginning is funny because our heroine doesn’t even know the difference between male and female and almost chops off the hero’s precious weewee, thinking it’s where all his essence is stored and could boost her power if she ate it. LOL. Essence alright, family line!! XD

The novel is short too, I have provided links to read it after the jump. 😀

    Thank you for the detailed synopsis and translated novel link.
    Yay! I love Deng Lun. He is such a good actor. So I’m guessing from the posters it’s a modern drama? I thought it was a costume drama for some reason.

      Its a costume drama, the posters are just for confirming since they havent started filming or anything yet so no character posters. 🙂

      Love this pairing! The story sounds like Hua Qian Gu except Shifu turns demon instead. LOL.

      Might read the novel….might… Thanks for the synopsis K!

    “Our male lead is the second son of the Heavenly King, known as the most beautiful of the six realms.”

    *rolls eyes* Not again. What’s with Chinese authors’ obsession with pretty male leads? It’s also funny how the actors they choose are always not-so-appropriate considering the description. I mean, you can probably call Deng Lun cute but “most beautiful”? *cough*

    • 19 thoughts on “Drama Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost confirms Yang Zi and Deng Lun

      Well, even Yang Zi is criticized for being gorgeous enough for Jin Mi. If they can’t find actors who fit the character descriptions, they find good actors so viewers will forget about those (eg: Mark Chao)

      • 19 thoughts on “Drama Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost confirms Yang Zi and Deng Lun

        May be unpopular opinion, but I concur! Yang Zi is not pretty enough for the main lead actress as she’s supposed to be one of the most beautiful in the realm (Yang Zi comes off more as cute than beautiful.) I really hope her acting awes me to pull this role off.

        • 19 thoughts on “Drama Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost confirms Yang Zi and Deng Lun

          Yeah I think so too lol. But I supposed she will pull off the ditzy part well since she played Qiu Yingying.

    I love Yang Zi but seeing her everywhere spoilt it for me totally. It’s always the same “recycled” actors and actresses but I guess they were chosen in the hope for viewers.

    I am really excited for this one. I hope they do a good job on the adaptation.

    I’ve seen the novel being recommended a few times but never really got into it. Now that Yang Zi’s name is attached to it I might give it a try.

    Loved this novel, so angsty, so passionate, so tear-jerking. I really hope this pair pulls it off!
