OMGAHHH!! Can I get a hallaluyah?! Oh yea, my birthday month is proving to be a festive occasion! Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy (海上牧云记) with Huang Xuan, Shawn Dou, Xu Lu, and Zhou Yi Wei is finally airing!!
Synopsis (without reading the novel): In the ancient times, 6th Prince Mu Yun Sheng (Huang Xuan) was born. Because his mom is a demon (takeaway is…she’s not human), he is not loved by the Emperor, and lives in seclusion and loneliness. He happens to obtain an antique painting of a spirit demon and befriends the little trapped being. Both promise to escape to the world’s most beautiful place. Mu Ru Han Jiang (Shawn Dou), son of a general, is elected to be the prince’s friend since he was young. Their peaceful days end when the eight tribes rebel. Mu Ru army fails to protect the royal family and is then exiled, breaking the friendship formed between the two families – Mu Yun and Mu Run. A few years later, a new rebellion threatens the royal family and this time, adult Mu Ru Han Jiang is the only one capable of protecting them. Pain and sorrows of past wounds now manifest in the new generation.
Huang Xuan. Our isolated and lonely prince.
Shawn Dou, the abandoned general’s son.
The dark horse of the three male leads for sure is Zhou Yi Wei. The intensity he brings to his character is unbelievable. And the almost-bald look on him is freakin sexy. Never thought I would say that. XD
Xu Lu. Loved by many men but fated aka prophesized to be the future queen (Yun Sheng’s wife), she’s separated from her one true love.
Janice Man. As Pan Xi, the spirit locked inside the painting Huang Xuan’s mesmerized by.
Wan Qian Shi as Nan Ku Yue Li, niece of the current empress. Tyrannical, evil, hates Xu Lu’s character.
Zhang Jian Ning. Princess Mu Yun Yan Shuang. Eager to win, competitive, likes Li Zi Feng’s character.
Old Trailer and BTS:
Directed swiftly by Cao Dun (The Sweet Burden), he will also be working on the drama scripts with Jin He Zai (novel author), Wei Jing Na, and Tian Yan Juan. The series has about 80 episodes and begins airing on 11/21! Poor our messenger Lenje for keeping up with all the red herrings and one true date. 😉 I just knew that if the date is real, the drama weibo would have to announce it since they worked so hard on it.
