The stills we have seen so far are mostly bubbly and very cute but the latest batch shows that angst and heartbreak is in store for our love birds. The Destiny of White Snake features Chusen package deal (Yang Zi, Ren Jia Lun, Shu Chang, and Mao Zi Jun) in hopefully their last collaboration for a while. Don’t get me wrong, I love these people but I would like to see them work with…like OTHER PEOPLE TOO! Seems like it is a new story and not a remake after all. A cultivating doctor saves a little white snake and she gathers enough cultivation power to become human. They grow close and to help him become a celestial being she breaks a heavenly seal, accidentally releasing chaos and destruction to the human world. To save the world, she sacrifices herself and our doc also disintegrates. Many years pass by and they are reunited with their memories returned. But to be together is going against the norm. Monk Fa Hai is also awakened and his rivals-turned-lovers story with Green Snake doesn’t bear a happy ending.
Directed by Liu Guo Hui (The Lost Tomb, Legend of Chusen) and Yin Tao (Glory of Tang Dynasty), and written by Han Pei Zhen (The Bride with White Hair 2012), The Destiny of White Snake plans to have 60 episodes.
