Mao Zi Jun, Zhang Yao, and Lu Xiao Yu confirm drama adaptation of novel The Story of the Bat

I apologize, I had this post in the draft section for 2 months…. o.o

Adapted from the BL novel written by Feng Nong, The Story of the Bat (夜燕白) and stars Mao Zi Jun, Zhang Yao, and Lu Xiao Yu. Lol. Another boy-love novel coming your way. Our first male lead, plays by Zhang Yao, has lived quietly since birth; he’s the unfavorable third son of the Bai family. Why unfavorable? He’s the result of Master Bai’s traitorous nights with a blind girl who rescued him and they were trapped for a short period of time together. He and his mother were taken in under the disguise that he’s Madam’s Bai’s son (she has two biological sons). The poor child is shunned by people in the Bai Manor and is not allowed to learn Kung Fu. He’s sent away to learn education and only returns once a year to visit. In this story, he is the BAT – living and thriving in the dark, beautiful and alone, harboring a heart of resentment. Mao Zi Jun plays the other male lead – leader of jianghu, master of the demon sect. Powerful and arrogant, who would have thought he would fall head-over-heels for the unfavorable third son at first glance? He sacrifices, waits impatiently, and even gives up his respected status for love.

Hohoho, the novel sounds awesome but turned into a drama, what will be preserved, what will be removed?

Love In Between with Zhang Yao and Zhang Ya Qin to air in June

Love In Between (少年游之一寸相思) is based on the novel written by Zi Wei Liu Nian. Zhang Yao plays a young noble in search of a famous painting masquerading as a physician. On his journey, he meets masterful thief of disguise – our female lead, played by Zhang Ya Qin.

When people want to attack her in jianghu, our male lead jumps in to help and gets entangled in the drama of the jianghu as well as the drama of court politics.

Aww, looks like both of our leads have a sad upbringing. She is of ethnic minority, is often looked down, and hence has low self-esteem; always thinking that she doesn’t deserve someone of noble like him. She was saved by her Shifu so she thinks highly of him, and when he went crazy, she was the only one who stood beside him while the whole sect turned away. While he may be noble, he was poisoned by his dad’s wife and was taken to the mountains since he was young to be cured.

They sound so precious! 😭

Airing 6/8!
