Manhua series Rakshasa Street (超级网剧镇魂街) written and illustrated by Xu Chen gets a drama adaptation starring Jiro Wang (Looking for Aurora) and An Yue Xi (Tornado Girl 2). Release date has been announced to be August 2nd with 24 episodes. If you’ve been reading news about this project, you know I (and a few others) have watched the anime! The effects aren’t shabby at all. While Jiro is not my “older” brother material, I’m gonna be hopeful! Please develop the female character because her story doesn’t get anywhere. Lol.
Born in 1994, new actress Bai Lu is the latest addition to Yu Zheng Studio. She’s in both Zhao Ge and Untouchable Lovers and the recent webdrama Da Wang Bu Rong Yi, and now she’s given the lead monarch role in the supposedly drama version of Zhao Li Ying’s movie, The Monkey King 3: Kingdom of Women. Playing the role of our righteous and kind monk (in his youth) Tang Sanzang is Hou Ming Hao (The Devotion of Suspect X). I remember him from 72 Floors of Mystery, the poor kid got betrayed by Kris and Li Ying. But…Errr, he is only 18… and if the whole drama is about him in Kingdom of Women, wouldn’t he have kids…and grand kids too at that point?! Forget about the scripture then… LOL.
You are either gonna have productions that release stills every 3 days or ones that don’t release a sniff of anything! This webdrama is unfortunately the latter. Drama adaptation of manhua Rakshasa Street stars Jiro Wang (Looking for Aurora) and An Yue Xi (Tornado Girl 2) in a supernatural modern world where there’s hell and heaven, and the in-between dimension.
Beside two new posters + first trailer, we have nothing else. Lol.
Oooo. Sexy cat-and-mouse game between two geniuses! It’s adapted from Japanese novel, The Devotion of Suspect X (容疑者Xの献身 Yōgisha Ekkusu no Kenshin?), written Keigo Higashino, and follows the intense investigation when one tries his best to hide and the other tries his best to uncover. In the end, who will win?
If they keep the soundtrack from the anime, I think this webdrama will be all set! It’s so good to jam to. Rakshasa Street (镇魂街) is the drama adaptation of a manhua starring Jiro Wang (Looking for Aurora) and An Yue Xi (Tornado Girl 2) as the leads in a supernatural modern world where there’s hell and heaven, and the in-between dimension. What is causing me to side eye this production is the lack of a child actor to play Jiro’s adorable, beyond-his-age, brother! WHERE!? I saw the stills of the brothers when they were younger but nothing when Jiro is playing the adult role. Please don’t remove that aspect. I love the brotherhood!
