Technically considered a web series as the broadcaster is iQiyi and Youku, Legend of Awakening is a novel to ‘drama’ adaptation based on the novel of the same name penned by Hudie Lan (also known as Butterfly Blue).
Starring the popular Arthur Chen (Chen Fei Yu), Cheng Xiao, Dylan Xiong (Xiong Ziqi) and Deng Enxi it premiered on both Youku and iQiyi on April 23, 2020.
Legend of Awakening (天醒之路) is based on the novel written by Butterfly Blue, who was also the author behind The King’s Avatar. And it is this drama that Chen Fei Yu picked over filming Ever Night 2. Devastated by the beasts, people in the Northern and Southern dynasties turn to cultivation for protection. Two orphaned siblings, played by Chen Fei Yu and Deng En Xi, are taken into the Zhai Feng Martial Arts School, where they become good friends with two more central characters, played by Dylan Xiong and Yu Yi Jie. They four youngsters make it their destiny to become the awakeners, people in charge of protecting their homeland.
They just dropped the opening themesong so I’m thinking the airdate is near ~
I’m not anywhere near the finale of Season 1 but it’s because I dread finishing Season 1 and won’t be seeing Chen Fei Yu anymore. I like his freshness, I like his sass, and was still holding on to the hope that they won’t change the lead actor. Silly me. In Season 2, Dylan Wang (Meteor Garden) will take over the male lead character. I haven’t seen Meteor Garden 2018 yet so no opinion from me about his acting.
How was the ending guys? Did they leave room for major plots in Season 2?
Guess who’s home and have time to watch dramas! Kappy! Why? She got her four wisdom teeth extracted. Bloody hell, let me tell you. I’ve been high on pain drugs for the past 3 days. I think it makes me nice and tolerant of everything. Lol.
Ohhhhh Ohhhh….I am strangely looking forward to Ever Night (Jiang Ye), adapted from the fantasy novel written by Mao Ni. I have never seen the two leads in any other projects, both are rising new faces, especially Song Yi Ren who looks so adorable with her petite frame. What amazes me is the veteran actors enlisted for this drama, you have Leon Lai (what?! I didn’t recognize him at all, time is not kind to him, lol), Adam Cheng, Ni Da Hong, Hu Jun, just to name a few.
Will this be the drama to get me out of my drama drought? Just one caveat I notice….all the girls he meets….they look smitten with him…that is too many girls! But I’m also happy to report that the drama weibo has been posting short clips of the cast dubbing their own voices. Another yay!
