Immortality: Drama adaptation of The Husky and His White Cat Shizun drops First Posters with Chen Fei Yu and Luo Yun Xi

Adapted from the boy-love novel The Husky and His White Cat Shizun (二哈和他的白猫师尊) written by Meatbun Doesn’t Eat Meat (Lol), Immortality (皓衣行) stars two male leads in Chen Fei Yu and Luo Yun Xi. I’m trying to read the translated novel and I think you guys know that I don’t do well when it comes to Shifu-disciple relationship in dramas. Lol. Chen Fei Yu is set to play Mo Wei Yu, the disciple, and Luo Yun Xi is taking on the role of Shifu here.

And it looks like the dynamic of Shifu and disciple in here is just as volatile as any other. We meet the disciple Mo Wei Yu when he’s on top; designating himself as the emperor of the cultivation world, referring to himself as Mo Ran. He lies, cheats, sleeps around, and does all sorts of murderous events which ends in his death in chapter 1 of the novel. The long-suffering cultivators finally work together and rise up to fight him, the merciless tyrant. A little before that, we learn that he beat his Shifu in a battle and has brought him back to be imprisoned in his castle for ten years. Not letting himself be killed by others, Mo Ran consumes a deadly poison, and even digs himself a hole in the ground for his death. Lol. What a character. They find him dead….but when Mo Ran opens his eyes, he’s reborn, or shall I say, he wakes up to see a younger him in the mirror. He’s given a second chance at re-living his life. But this time, another angle to the story is presented, and his eyes finally see all the small and quiet ways his Shifu used to protect him in the past. He was just too stubborn to see. His Shifu, Chu Wan Ning, is a man of few words and is often misunderstood for his inability to express himself. And so the two suffer painfully….and for many years.

I didn’t finish reading the novel, like always. XD

Love is Sweet with Bai Lu, Luo Yun Xi, and Xiao Yan is set to air soon

Bai Lu to romance Luo Yun Xi in the novel-to-drama adaptation called Love Is Sweet (半是蜜糖半是伤). She plays a young, idealistic woman who holds a master’s degree in both economics and psychology and is a little sensitive to tears. After her father’s death, she enters an investment banking company to follow his wishes and that is where she’s reunited with her childhood-friend-now-Deputy-general-manager played by Luo Yuo Xi. While she’s happy to see him, she finds him a changed person, now opposing her at every corner, and known for his poisonous tongue. I’m reading some comments from novel readers and it looks like HE is in love with HER, but she likes someone else, so he conspires to break them apart. Will she forgive him? The English title of the drama is misleading too, as the literal translation is Half is Honey, Half Hurt/Pain. They forgot the other half. Lol.

The two female leads from The Legends reunited once more!

The novel is available to read at NovelUpdates.

UPDATES: Not airing today… Lol….
