Technically considered a web series as the broadcaster is iQiyi and Youku, Legend of Awakening is a novel to ‘drama’ adaptation based on the novel of the same name penned by Hudie Lan (also known as Butterfly Blue).
Starring the popular Arthur Chen (Chen Fei Yu), Cheng Xiao, Dylan Xiong (Xiong Ziqi) and Deng Enxi it premiered on both Youku and iQiyi on April 23, 2020.
Legend of Awakening (天醒之路) is based on the novel written by Butterfly Blue, who was also the author behind The King’s Avatar. And it is this drama that Chen Fei Yu picked over filming Ever Night 2. Devastated by the beasts, people in the Northern and Southern dynasties turn to cultivation for protection. Two orphaned siblings, played by Chen Fei Yu and Deng En Xi, are taken into the Zhai Feng Martial Arts School, where they become good friends with two more central characters, played by Dylan Xiong and Yu Yi Jie. They four youngsters make it their destiny to become the awakeners, people in charge of protecting their homeland.
They just dropped the opening themesong so I’m thinking the airdate is near ~
I thought this was simply a rom-com drama but Zheng Shuang is actually playing a robot who’s a nanny/assistant to an arrogant celebrity, played by Thai Actor God Itthipat Thanit. A love story between a robot and a human….we have seen plenty of those in Kdramaland this year. Lol. But of course this was filmed waaaaay earlier and released today.
If anyone is busy, then Dylan Xiong Zi Qi is one to add to the list, busy filming one drama after another. He’s another new face from last year that I haven’t gotten the chance to watch in any projects yet. Seems like a nice kid on variety shows. He will be romancing Li Xi Rui in Pretty Man (国民老公), adapted from Ye Fei Ye‘s novel. It’s a modern love story that starts in high school where our two leads harbor crushes for each other but not brave enough to admit. Events happen and he thinks she likes his younger brother (of a different mother), while she thinks he hates her. And just like that 13 years pass by and now he’s a rich CEO of a company, also an acting god, while she’s a budding new actress in the scene. Behind the scene, they are forced to get married but he’s acting under the name of his younger brother – who’s in a coma after an accident. Now linked together, they will jump through hurdles to the very end. Sweetly.
Hmmmm this sounds melo but readers promise it’s a darn sweet story afterwards ~
