Peter Sheng Yi Lun leads drama adaptation of Swire God (Tai Gu Shen Wang)

Fantasy novel Swire God aka Tai Gu Shen Wang (太古神王) written by Jing Wu Hen is the upcoming drama led by Peter Sheng Yi Lun. What a change in trajectory, just a year ago, he wasn’t getting paid by his old company, and lookie at him now, getting projects left to right. Though, criticisms for his acting are consistent. One weibo comment, “He should act in a drama about learning how to act.” Lol. Harsh, but I do hope he shows improvement in Oh My General with Sandra Ma.

Drama synopsis written by our new pirate, dramapotatoe (you’ll meet her soon!): Qin Wen Tian (Peter Sheng), the adopted son of the Qin family, was born a weakling. The Qin family was forced to make a joint marriage with the Bai family. The Bai family however, had their sights on the royal family and broke the marriage agreement with the Qin family, even going after Qin Wen Tian’s life. Qin Wen Tian managed to escape and at the same time, met with huge changes in the royal family, with the third prince Yi Tian Jiao taking the throne. The Qin family was accused of a crime and the whole clan was sentenced to death. Qin Wen Tian managed to escape and sneak into the palace, vowing to take down the culprit and rebuild Yi Country. Along the way, Qin Wen Tian made friends and joined the renowned martial arts sect, Jiu Hua Men. Coincidentally, he found out that the former crown prince, Yi Wu Wei was hiding out in Jiu Hua Men. Along with the eldest granddaughter of the Mo family, Mo Qing Cheng, Qin Wen Tian protected Yi Wu Wei. Battling Yi Tian Jiao’s coercion and his grandfather’s cunningness, Qin Wen Tian used his wisdom to overcome all sorts of challenges and finally helped the wise ruler, Yi Wu Wei take back the throne. In the end, Qin Wen Tian did not go after fame and fortune but rather stayed in Jiu Hua Men with Mo Qing Cheng and protected Yi Country.

Filming doesn’t begin until the latter half of the year.

    Jing Tian’s name was floating around for this. All because Peter started to follow her on weibo very recently lol. We’ll see how that goes.

      I doubt it though. I mean, there is a chance since JT’s career trajectory has taken a weird turn lately, but this looks like a male-centric drama. The point is, it’s a male-centric drama and the lead is Peter Sheng. To me that means that we won’t be seeing any big name female leads. It’s likely to be someone you won’t think of as an option, perhaps a young, forgotten actress. An with Peter Sheng’s reputation for being an awful actor, the ratings won’t be pretty for this one.

        I don’t see Jing Tian taking on this after headlining glory of tang dynasty either. The other female lead is rumored to be Victoria song which I find more plausible. I can’t imagine how disastrous that would be though..

          Victoria? This drama is gonna be a rough ride lol~

        Other than Jing Tian, there is Victoria as Jen mentioned below. Apparently the production also reached out to Zhang Tian Ai and even Zhao Liying. Hopefully there are some decent actresses out there that don’t mind being in a male-centric drama as long as the female characters serve some important purpose, like Nihuang in Nirvana.

        But you’re right, Jing Tian might be out of the question now.

    It’s hard to imagine Peter being able to act out Qin Wen Tian from what I read in the synopsis… The male lead doesn’t sound like the typical ice prince type of character, which Peter honestly can only act as. And the male lead is practically the whole drama, with Peter’s acting skills right now, this drama is just a no no for me…

    How on earth is he getting so many lead roles in such a short time? Even the more popular actors/actresses don’t have that many dramas o_O

    The plot sounds good though and I’ll probably watch this (fingers crossed that they’ll be some stronger cast members to carry the drama)
