Hu Yi Tian, Niu Jun Feng, and Jian Ren Zi audition for The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber 2018

Uh Oh. Supposedly leaked photos for the upcoming adaptation of Jin Yong’s The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber are said to be circulating the net.

I adore the lad and if we go by past adaptations, the main hero isn’t exactly the handsome type. Lol.

See, cdramaland needs less of those and more of a step-up in all directions.
