First Trailer and Stills for Agarwood Like Crumbs with Yang Zi and Cheng Yi

The Legend of Chusen‘s Lu Xue Qi and Lin Jing Yu reunited in a new drama, adapted from Su Mo’s novel, Agarwood Like Bread Crumbs (沉香如屑).

Copied and pasted from my last post: The story sounds quite tragic too with the past, present, and future intertwining. The story follows our female lead, Yan Dan (Yang Zi), who is a lotus flower fairy; her “owner”, Yu Mo, is a fish who has cultivated for many years. The two travel around to many places, consuming evil, weak souls to nourish their power/bodies and calling it “doing one good deed a day”. However, one day, they encounter a Taoist Master, Tang Zhou (Cheng Yi), whose goal is to eliminate the evils of this world and protect the humans. The three travel together to find four ancient artifacts which leads to the discovery of their twisted past together – 800 years ago. Our female lead was an exotic four-leaf flower (not sure how to describe her…Lol) in heaven who also had a twin sister. Her body was considered extraordinary herbs with great healing powers. Yan Dan fell in love with the god of war, Ying Yuan, who was terribly injured during the battle with the demons and lost his eyesight. To heal him, she willingly gave up her petals, and even half her heart to cure his eyes. Alas, once he could see again, he didn’t appear to remember her…. To forget him, she gave up her immortality and just like that 800 years went by. Her fish friend escaped heaven to search for her and the two share 20 years of peace together.

800 years later, she meets Tang Zhou, who turns out to be Ying Yuan’s reincarnation. Ha. There’s a lovely twist to this story as you have to figure out the REAL male lead. There’s another guy who’s a god too but he comes and goes.
