Heaven Official’s Blessing (天官赐福) is an upcoming ancient drama adapted from the novel written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu (The Untamed). Our two male leads have quite the history. The story begins 800 years ago, one of our male leads is Xie Lian (Zhai Xiao Wen), a beloved Crown Prince from Xian Le kingdom who has a grand wish of helping the common people. A child prodigy, he’s given a chance to ascend heaven at age 17, but is unfortunately demoted back to the mortal realm due to some unforeseen circumstances (bad decision, good intentions). He never gives up, that is his saving grace trait. Though he lives in poverty and has to work every job possible, he perseveres for his belief in helping people. He’s once again allowed back to Heaven, just to be banished a moment later (lol, this poor kid). 800 Years later, he’s given another chance to ascend heaven but isn’t very well-received. His first task is to kill ghosts in the mortal realm and this is when he meets the other male lead, Leader of Ghost City (Zhang Ling He). Unbeknownst to our Prince, Leader of Ghost City has been harboring a crush on him for 800 years. Turns out, the Crown Prince saved the boy during his first ascension. The lightning bolt of love hit then and it looks like a deep one.
I can see why some fans are upset with the styling, it’s the same hairstyle in the manhua for Zhai Xiao Wen but I don’t think the style fits his face well. Zhang Ling He is gorgeous to look at and his red clothes reminds me of Zhan Zhao. Lol. Since it’s still the early stages of filming/testing out costumes/hair, let’s relax and see how they will alter the details going forward!
