Hey guys! Our trio of talented volunteers, Maymay and Becky (translations), and Lin (subtitles), have joined hands to translate the opening and ending theme songs for the currently airing drama Love Between Fairy and Devil, which is adapted from the novel Cang Lan Jue (苍兰诀) by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang starring Dylan Wang He Di and Esther Yu Shu Xin.
It follows the romance of the ancient Demon King resurrected thanks to a powerless, immortal Little Orchid. The beginning sounds quite humorous with them inhabiting each other’s body causing the demon clan to be stupefied by their Lord’s behavior from time to time. Our trusting Little Orchid slowly defrosts the cold, arrogant, powerful Demon King.

His first task is to kill ghosts in the mortal realm and this is when he meets the other male lead, Leader of Ghost City (Zhang Ling He). Unbeknownst to our Prince, Leader of Ghost City has been harboring a crush on him for 800 years. Turns out, the Crown Prince saved the boy during his first ascension. The lightning bolt of love hit then and it looks like a deep one.
I can see why some fans are upset with the styling, it’s the same hairstyle in the manhua for Zhai Xiao Wen but I don’t think the style fits his face well. Zhang Ling He is gorgeous to look at and his red clothes reminds me of Zhan Zhao. Lol. Since it’s still the early stages of filming/testing out costumes/hair, let’s relax and see how they will alter the details going forward!
First Impression? What a good-looking group of kids!
