Leaked images of Heaven Official’s Blessing as Zhang Ling He and Zhai Xiao Wen begin filming

Heaven Official’s Blessing (天官赐福) is an upcoming ancient drama adapted from the novel written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu (The Untamed). Our two male leads have quite the history. The story begins 800 years ago, one of our male leads is Xie Lian (Zhai Xiao Wen), a beloved Crown Prince from Xian Le kingdom who has a grand wish of helping the common people. A child prodigy, he’s given a chance to ascend heaven at age 17, but is unfortunately demoted back to the mortal realm due to some unforeseen circumstances (bad decision, good intentions). He never gives up, that is his saving grace trait. Though he lives in poverty and has to work every job possible, he perseveres for his belief in helping people. He’s once again allowed back to Heaven, just to be banished a moment later (lol, this poor kid). 800 Years later, he’s given another chance to ascend heaven but isn’t very well-received. His first task is to kill ghosts in the mortal realm and this is when he meets the other male lead, Leader of Ghost City (Zhang Ling He). Unbeknownst to our Prince, Leader of Ghost City has been harboring a crush on him for 800 years. Turns out, the Crown Prince saved the boy during his first ascension. The lightning bolt of love hit then and it looks like a deep one.

I can see why some fans are upset with the styling, it’s the same hairstyle in the manhua for Zhai Xiao Wen but I don’t think the style fits his face well. Zhang Ling He is gorgeous to look at and his red clothes reminds me of Zhan Zhao. Lol. Since it’s still the early stages of filming/testing out costumes/hair, let’s relax and see how they will alter the details going forward!

    Omg their styling looks so bad helps…… Especially Zhai Xiao Wen, his face shape is so masculine, that hairstyle and the costume makes him look…… like a guy acting as a lady.
    I really wish they have gotten legit actors for the drama, sigh.

      Lol now that you mention it…yes to your comment about ZXW’s styling. Now I can’t get the movie White Chicks out of my head and associating it with this! I know nothing about ZXW so no comment his casting. Styling is also bad for ZLH but I liked him in Maiden Holmes and thought he did well as a newbie. HOB has such a massive cast of characters it’ll be interesting to see the rest of the casting.

    With the amount of anticipation for this drama, I’m surprised it looks so …. cheap. The costumes are unflattering and Hua Cheng’s San Lan costume looks so bland. Their chemistry better be stellar.

    oh lord can they please just fix Zhai Xiaowen’s wig…it doesn’t have to look exactly like the donghua but just make it suit the actor, it’s shouldn’t be rocket science
    I knew I can’t trust Iqiyi with IPs and I was right lol.

    Omg.. The clothes look cheap. How much filter will they apply later to make those clothes looking good?

    Xie Ling looks like a man stuffed in a white wedding dress. Hua Chen has on a guard uniform recycled from another drama, or a cheap cosplay costume.

      Not man wearing a literal wedding dress but the feel of it.

      Guanyin (aka Goddess of Mercy) had been male then both male and female. Some time during 12th century, Guanyin became fully female and remained thus. Is the production trying to invoke a male Guanyin imagery with Xie Lian’s styling?

    Oh gosh that red…that horrible red…can they redo all the costumes please? You’d think they’d try harder on a highly anticipated show…
