On to the next big drama airing this season: Legend of Fu Yao, starring Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan, is proving to be the next big thing. Encompassing love, revenge, fate, friendship, companionship and royal intrigue, the drama is set to keep viewers on the edge of their seats whether in suspense or all out belly-aching laughter.
Join the crew of IMOmusings, Iridescent, Enid Bee and linjaturtle as we embark on this 66 episode long journey with weekly recaps.
Legend of Fu Yao might be this summer’s biggest hit series if Yang Mi played her cards right again! The airing date was mentioned to be June 18th during Yang Mi’s guest appearance on Run Brothers but today the official drama weibo has also confirmed the good news for fans, accompanied by a new shiny trailer. So mark your calendar folks!
The process felt longer didn’t it? They filmed quite fast for an ancient drama! Legend of Fu Yao (扶摇) is adapted from the novel written by Tian Xia Gui Yuan with Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan as the main leads. And of course, you will see her harem of pretty kids as well. =P
You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.
I love how whenever they dress Yang Mi as a male, she looks the same in all her dramas with that cute little scholar hat. Lol. Legend of Fu Yao (扶摇) is adapted from the novel written by Tian Xia Gui Yuan and began filming on June 27th and plans to film for about 5 months.
