First question, why is the drama called Airbenders when it has nothing to do with Aang?!
Airbenders (乘风少年) is an upcoming modern drama about youth and following their dreams. Our hero is a talented pianist who is all set for his study at Julliard until his family went bankrupt and he resigns to becoming a trainee for another agency instead. Because of his classical training, he is placed in a back up group, where he meets a few other talented male trainees and learns pop music from them. His old friend has now targeted him as a foe and the two are engaged in a fierce competition to debut.
Oh! My Emperor (哦！我的皇帝陛下) is a webdrama tailored to promote the boys from boyband X Nine with Gu Jia Cheng and Zhao Lu Si in the leading roles. It’s a fantasy drama with our heroine coming from the 21st century and traveling to a mysterious country where people are ruled by their astrological sign and the hilarious encounters she has with each of them in the palace ~ Sounds like a lighthearted series!
While we see glimpses of his romance with the ladies, it’s Wu Lei‘s chemistry with his master, Baron Chen, that cracks me up. He puts the poor kid through a lot to get that kind of face above! So many pretty ladies, Wu Lei putting the moves on his Jie Jies. Tsk tsk!! XD
More pretty! I don’t know about ya, but having a good hair is important to me. Lol. Last time, they released wintry stills of the cast galloping in the snow, and now we get a peek at the styling of all the key players. Fights Break Sphere is adapted from Battle Through the Heavens (斗破苍穹), a xianxia novel written by Tian Can Tu Dou.
Ah, so after the initial rumored cast was exposed back in November, we finally have our confirmed cast and first batch of wintry stills for Leo Wu Lei‘s next epic costume drama, Fights Break Sphere, adapted from Battle Through the Heavens (斗破苍穹), a xianxia novel written by Tian Can Tu Dou with over 1000 chapters. Male lead was confirmed months ago for Wu Lei’s casting and now we have his female lead in Lin Yun, a film actress who broke into the scene by playing the mermaid in Stephen Chow’s movie, The Mermaid. She’s 20 to Leo’s 17. Very close! Her character, Xiao Xun Er, is adopted by male lead’s family and his childhood friend, very loyal and dedicated to him.
Holy. If they really invited all the listed celebrities, this is one heck of a pretty drama to look out for. Battle Through The Heavens or Fights Break Sphere (斗破苍穹) is based on a xianxia novel written by Tian Can Tu Dou with over 1000 chapters. That part alone makes me want to watch than read. Lol. The synopsis from Wuxia World: In a land where no magic is present. A land where the strong make the rules and the weak have to obey. A land filled with alluring treasures and beauty, yet also filled with unforeseen danger. Three years ago, Xiao Yan, who had shown talents none had seen in decades, suddenly lost everything. His powers, his reputation, and his promise to his mother. What sorcery has caused him to lose all of his powers? And why has his fiancee suddenly shown up?
