We finally have a peek at the styling for our OTP – Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan in their upcoming period drama Legend of Fu Yao (扶摇皇后), an adaptation from the novel written by Tian Xia Gui Yuan, same author behind Chen Kun’s The Rise of Phoenixes. And I’m happy to report that both look good! Yang Mi had horrendous styling in Eternal Love that I still can’t get over them (lol), so am glad they made her look very pretty here!
Yang Mi looks softer and very young here, is it just me? Or that’s the magic of good hair?
Ethan Ruan, like Ming Dao, is all about the eyes and eyebrows. They never look much different. Thanks goodness he doesn’t have silky, long hair. XD
Filming Sets and Equipment:
Synopsis Translated by Tranzgeek: The Everlasting Imperial City that leads all of China, Tiansha, Xuanji, and the sects of learning, the holy land, as the sky separates Fufeng and the ocean, as they face one another. In the distant past, the firmament once gave birth to a god – a lotus, that formed into Meng Fuyao (Yang Mi). In childhood, Fuyao was cast into the depths of Yuanjian Sect. Because of her aptitude for being stupid, she was subject to the disdain of her teachers. When she was 16, she “broke into the 9th heaven”, a remarkable feat that henceforth made her dedicate herself to martial arts progress. To gather the secret orders of the world, she quietly waits for the Fufeng Sea to merge with the ocean. On that day, she sets out for the vault of heaven. Fuyao steps into the world, and her experiences pave a pathway. She and the crown prince, Changsun Wuji (Ethan Ruan) of the Everlasting Imperial City gets acquainted and falls in love. The two people cooperate to settle disputes and usurp power of the Taiyuan Regent. The army in the south of the Wuji Nation violates the boundary, and that is when the Virtuous Imperial Palace changes as Prince Lie of Tiansha fights the north and allies with others to regain his royal power as the heavens terminate. It is then made known that Fuyao’s is Xuanji King’s daughter. Everyone accompanies Fuyao in leaving for the firmament, as she uses her flesh and human body to contend against the evil things of the distant past, to save the heavens. After experiencing many hardships and perils and trials, in the end they defeat the conspiracy revolving around the heavens and get rid of all malicious and demonic roads, protecting the peace of the world. Fuyao and Wuji’s love also succeed in bearing good fruit. [DO NOT TAKE OUT WITHOUT AVV PERMISSION.]
Note: Changsun Wuji belongs to the Wuji Nation. The Wuji Nation’s capital is the Everlasting Imperial City. Tiansha, Fufeng, and Xuanji are all places.
Directed by Yang Wen Jun (So Young, You Are My Sunshine Movie), Xie Ze (Great Expectatons), and Li Cai, and written by novel author and Jie Yan Yan (Hua Xu Yin), Legend of Fu Yao plans to have 60 episodes.
