Impressive! I knew she was playing the female lead but she’s also listed as producer for The Legend of Shen Li (与凤行) at today’s booting ceremony! Hopefully, this means that she can have some control on reigning in the original novel story!
Based on the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (author of Ostentatious Zhao Yao, The Blue Whisper), The Legend of Shen Li follows the story of a strong-willed “Prince” of the demon world, Shen Li. To clarify, the “prince” here refers to our female lead, who is not blood-related to the demon royalty but a title given to her for her successes in battles and military prowess. Unluckily on her 1000th birthday, she receives a degree decree to get married to the Heavenly Emperor’s grandson, Fu Rong. The guy’s Casanova reputation forces her to run away. However, during her escape she’s injured and returns to her true form – a phoenix. The bad luck comes her way as she’s hunted down by a group of hunters. They pluck her golden feathers and sell her on the street vendor as a hairless chicken. LOL. That image is hella funny. She’s bought by a sickly scholar, who is actually a powerful God in Heaven who was bored (or whatever) and decided to enter the human realm with his memory intact. He can see that she’s a phoenix demon but doesn’t let her know about his knowledge or identity, in order to play tricks on her.
Director is Deng Ke (My Heroic Husband) and scriptwriter is given to Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (original novel author). Sounds good!
Qiyi describes the story: Finally, It’s My Turn to Fall in Love is adapted from the popular novel “The President’s Mistakenly Pampered Sweet Wife,” which is a story about the contractual love between Su Yanxi, a “girl who is never defeated” and Gu Xicheng, an “odd-ball who has a thing for even numbers” who had to sign this contract by accident. This drama tells the story of beauty vlogger Su Yanxi (played by Lin Xinyi) who is threatened by her twin sister He Jinxi (played by Lin Xinyi) and forced to replace her sister to become “contract lovers” with the wealthy president Gu Xicheng (played by Luo Zheng). Gu Xicheng, who wanted to make his sick grandma happy pretended to be in a relationship, yet he found himself slowly becoming more attracted by this optimistic and bright Su Yanxi. Xicheng gradually removed his irritable and cold shell, revealing a soft heart. At the same time, Su Yanxi, who has been hiding her identity and unable to tell the truth, is in a deep conflict… This drama establishes an image of young people who are self-reliant have the courage to reflect, and learn to grow. At the same time, by honing the hero and heroine, learning to gain character and growth in life, encourage young people to realize their dreams and gain love through their own efforts and charm, conveying a positive attitude towards life, and guide the audience to establish a correct attitude towards life. The concept of marriage and love has a very positive meaning.
Sorry for the lack of updates! Real life is taking away my time atm!

Sorry for the lack of updates guys, moving into a new place has completely taken over my life the past few weeks. The newfound freedom is great but the cleaning and organization is not!
Last I wrote about Love You Seven Times was in January of this year and now filming has wrapped and new promo videos and stills are also released! Seven Unfortunate Lifetimes All Thanks to a Moment of Impulse (一时冲动，七世不祥) is adapted from the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang. From my previous description: Female lead is a cloud fairy with no big ambition and spends her days preferably sleeping. Lol. She works for the stingy God of Moon (aka Yue Lao aka Matchmaker in Heaven) for very little money and intends on using that money to buy herself a fan. She’s napping peacefully one day when our male lead literally drops onto the carpet outside of the Moon’s temple. He asks for help in a disrespectful manner and has the audacity to try and whip her! Luckily…or in this case, unluckily, his whip ends up destroying her most coveted thing – her fan! Now he’s getting whooped. LOL. She ties up her hair, performs a measly spell to trap him, and then chomps on him with all her strength. 😛 He then pulls her hair! A full-on brawl takes place. In front of Jade Emperor, they are punished for messing up other people’s red strings of fate – by being sent to the mortal realm and experiencing 7 lifetimes of fated love. HOHOHO. As it turns out though, it was Yue Lao who messed up the strings the other day when he was drunk and our heroine is covering up for him. In the first lifetime, our girl smartly avoids having her memory wiped and swears to make the hero’s life a miserable existence. xD
