Cang Lan Jue (苍兰诀) aka The Parting of the Orchid and Cang/Demon King is an adaptation of the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (The Legends). Dylan Wang He Di wishes Yu Shu Xin happy birthday 12/18 and on the cake were their cartoon characters and drama name. After he was defeated thousands of years ago, our Demon King was put in coma (since he can’t die), a curse placed and his body stored at Hao Tian tower. It follows the romance of the ancient Demon King resurrected thanks to a powerless, immortal Little Orchid. The beginning sounds quite humorous with them inhabiting each other’s body (and eventually sharing the same body when hers is destroyed), causing the demon clan to be stupefied by their Lord’s behavior from time to time. Our trusting Little Orchid slowly defrosts the cold, arrogant, powerful Demon King.

Getting a season 2 in Cdramaland is very difficult, almost impossible, much less keeping the cast changes to a minimum. Ever Night somehow did that, not without upset fans and sides, but here we are at the premiere of Season 2. Even though I didn’t finish season 1, certain scenes still linger in my mind, which is a sure sign that I will return to finish. Looking forward to see those awesome action sequences again; in the hands of a female director (Yang Yang) no less!
Speaking of part 2, I still need to finish part 1. The change in our male lead from Arthur to Dylan was quite upsetting for many fans, but I want to remain optimistic. His height next to Yi Ren is spot on. Now let’s show us that signature smug!
No confirmed air date yet but it’s rumored to be soon. 🙂
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?
