Immortality: Drama adaptation of The Husky and His White Cat Shizun drops First Posters with Chen Fei Yu and Luo Yun Xi

Adapted from the boy-love novel The Husky and His White Cat Shizun (二哈和他的白猫师尊) written by Meatbun Doesn’t Eat Meat (Lol), Immortality (皓衣行) stars two male leads in Chen Fei Yu and Luo Yun Xi. I’m trying to read the translated novel and I think you guys know that I don’t do well when it comes to Shifu-disciple relationship in dramas. Lol. Chen Fei Yu is set to play Mo Wei Yu, the disciple, and Luo Yun Xi is taking on the role of Shifu here.

And it looks like the dynamic of Shifu and disciple in here is just as volatile as any other. We meet the disciple Mo Wei Yu when he’s on top; designating himself as the emperor of the cultivation world, referring to himself as Mo Ran. He lies, cheats, sleeps around, and does all sorts of murderous events which ends in his death in chapter 1 of the novel. The long-suffering cultivators finally work together and rise up to fight him, the merciless tyrant. A little before that, we learn that he beat his Shifu in a battle and has brought him back to be imprisoned in his castle for ten years. Not letting himself be killed by others, Mo Ran consumes a deadly poison, and even digs himself a hole in the ground for his death. Lol. What a character. They find him dead….but when Mo Ran opens his eyes, he’s reborn, or shall I say, he wakes up to see a younger him in the mirror. He’s given a second chance at re-living his life. But this time, another angle to the story is presented, and his eyes finally see all the small and quiet ways his Shifu used to protect him in the past. He was just too stubborn to see. His Shifu, Chu Wan Ning, is a man of few words and is often misunderstood for his inability to express himself. And so the two suffer painfully….and for many years.

I didn’t finish reading the novel, like always. XD

    Not sure yet whether I’ll check it out. I’ll wait for the trailer and see.
    I think their hairstyle looks off though. So puffy and it totally looks like they are wearing a wig ^^”

    I think this is a strange choice to adapt to drama given the heavy focus on romance unlike say Untamed and its source. Don’t think this one could stay any where near true to the novel. That said, I didn’t finish reading the book either because the sex slavery thing was a real big turn off for me. But hey I guess the drama would be improved on that point since that part is certainly not going to be in it.

      Given that Shi Mei is turned into female by the drama, I’d say you assume correctly about nowhere near true to the novel.

    I struggled a bit to finish the Chinese “original” version of the novel. By the time I got to reading it, strict explicit sexual content censorship already got to it. Found a patchwork of the censored stuff elsewhere to fill in the context. There were valid reasons for evil Mo Ran to be blinded by anger and hatred, including him being a dumbass. He did eventually suffer a great deal psychologically and physically after rebirth. So much deaths, mayhem and destruction that even rebirth into the same but different world and becoming the best person he could be still couldn’t totally fix.
