Guardians of the Lands: Drama adaptation of Priest’s Of Mountains and Rivers confirms Chen Xing Xu and Chen Mu Chi

Of Mountains and Rivers (山河表里) now known in English as Guardians of the Lands is the next Priest’s novel to be adapted. I think we need a new category just for Priest’s projects. Lol. It’s another BL novel following Chu Huan, to be played by Chen Xing Xu, and Nan Shan, to be played by new face, Chen Mu Chi. Chu Huan is a former secret agent who is hired to follow and kill a mafia boss but he falls over a cliff and ends up stranded in a mountain full of secrets and forces beyond scientific explanations, led by a pure and loyal tribe leader, Nan Shan. The two overcome their language barrier and begin many adventures together.

Filming quietly begins today 4/2.

Who is this handsome kid with the deep dimple!? Total new face! Very lucky he landed this role because if it’s successful, his name is all over the place. Good choice! I love his hair already. Lol.

You can read the translated novel here or here (both still ongoing).

    Priest has a large loyal mature (in age and temperament) Chinese BL fanbase who are very supportive and more forgiving of terrible scripts in drama adaptations. If some really don’t like an adaptation, they don’t seem to be actively working against it. This should highly desirable for production companies.

    Besides, fans unhappy with dramas have the more faithful well-produced audio dramas to go to. Audio drama productions are similar to kdrama live-shoots so they are more responsive to suggestions and criticisms.
