Li Ying is making a comeback after having her first child! Legend of Fei (有翡) is based on the novel You Fei/Bandits (有匪) written by Priest. It sounds like your typical wuxia drama that takes place during the Northern and Southern dynasties (?), where legends have fallen to the chaotic world, allowing room for the new rising heroes of the pugilistic world, some of which are our leading lady and man, Zhou Fei (Zhao Li Ying) and Xie Yun (Wang Yi Bo). Our female lead grew up in a neutral zone where there is no war, known collectively as the 48 tribes, so she leads a pretty peaceful life. That changes when her father is invited to join the Southern region, and she is forced to enter jianghu shortly after. Our male lead is an optimist, who knows a lot about the world because he has basically done a lot of jobs. His expertise? Running away and talking his way in/out of things (Lol). During our female lead’s journey, he is there to help her as she slowly becomes a hero in her own right.
As I read through the reviews of this novel, a lot of them describes the writing of Priest as draggy and there’s a lack of romantic scenes between the leading couple.
I only know one half of the equation (pairing) so I can’t judge much but reading everyone’s positive reviews about The Untamed makes me feel slightly better about this pairing.
I haven’t had time to check this drama out yet. T___T
Guardian or Zhen Hun (镇魂) is a webdrama adapted from the supernatural novel written by Priest following our two male leads. Zhao Yun Lan (Bai Yu) is a leader of the Special Investigation Department, in charge of cases done by non-human beings. His family is rich and the department is created by his father. Lol. Arrogant and a little shameless about his talents, he also fights well. He is responsible and lives like the quote, “an eye for an eye”, so don’t mess with him. His real identity was a god at the same time as Nüwa but for certain reasons, was reincarnated to become a human being, without his powers. The other male lead is Chen Wei (Zhu Yi Long), a University Professor, known for his pretty looks and pink cheeks when teased by the other male lead. His real identity is one of the two Demon Lords. He has a sword which can slice and obliterate ghosts. As they solve crimes together, more of their history will be unraveled.
SO STINGY! STINGY! I waited a full day after Bai Yu teased on weibo about the trailer coming out soon….trailer my butt, it’s only 10 seconds long… Lol. Good thing I like you boy!! XD Anyway, Guardian is definitely one of the webdramas I’m looking forward to the most, starring two actors I really like – Zhu Yi Long and Bai Yu in a twisty bromance with fantasy elements and intertwined with the past and present.
EEEEEE! I can’t wait for this webdrama with Zhu Yi Long and Bai Yu! They are adorable behind-the-scenes! Guardian (镇魂) is based on the novel Zhen Hun written by Priest. A world beyond scientific understanding with a group of passionate adults trying to solve cases done by such forces.
A thug and a clean-cut professor working together? SIGN ME UP.
Look at those adorable faces! *___* Imma watch you two, I will! I do need a good bromance story right now. Three months of filming comes to an end today for fantasy crime-solving webdrama Guardian (镇魂) with Zhu Yi Long and Bai Yu as leads; Yi Long jumps immediately into another project, lol, will write about it when I have more details.
No longer a boy-boy love story, it is brotherhood all the way, every single day. I wouldn’t want it any other way. =D
YAYAYYAYA!! This is even better then the first round of casting! Bai Yu (Memory Lost) and Zhu Yi Long (Border Town Prodigal) are the leading men in upcoming webdrama Guardian (Zhen Hun) based on the novel written by Priest. Originally a boy-boy love story, the drama will change it to focus on brotherhood instead. I can’t complain when you put Yi Long as lead. XD And a story about ghosts, demons, solving supernatural crimes? I’m in!
