Gorgeous stills of Republican fantasy drama, The Shadow, with Gao Wei Guang and Ouyang Nana

The Shadow (如月) is adapted from the novel written by Ni Luo, who is also the author for Wu Xin: The Monster Killer. Much to fans’ happiness, Gao Wei Guang is finally going to portray a vampire. Lol. A thousand years old vampire who is a famous business man. He angers the Japanese during a transaction and they send a group of assassins after him. During the chase, he’s rescued by our blind female lead (played by Ouyang Nana) and her friend (played by Dong Si Cheng). To repay her kindness, he searches for her and discovers her bad family situation, prompting his concern and protectiveness over her. The people behind the assassination join hand with a common enemy of his and promise to uncover the truth behind our male lead. What is it? That he likes blood? You want to volunteer your neck? I’m sure it will be classy – served in a wine cup. 😉

I was initially excited because Vengo will make a beautiful chiseled vampire, but he’s almost double the age of Nana. o.o Ottokee!
