Zhao Li Ying becomes producer as The Legend of Shen Li begins filming

Impressive! I knew she was playing the female lead but she’s also listed as producer for The Legend of Shen Li (与凤行) at today’s booting ceremony! Hopefully, this means that she can have some control on reigning in the original novel story!

Based on the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (author of Ostentatious Zhao Yao, The Blue Whisper), The Legend of Shen Li follows the story of a strong-willed “Prince” of the demon world, Shen Li. To clarify, the “prince” here refers to our female lead, who is not blood-related to the demon royalty but a title given to her for her successes in battles and military prowess. Unluckily on her 1000th birthday, she receives a degree decree to get married to the Heavenly Emperor’s grandson, Fu Rong. The guy’s Casanova reputation forces her to run away. However, during her escape she’s injured and returns to her true form – a phoenix. The bad luck comes her way as she’s hunted down by a group of hunters. They pluck her golden feathers and sell her on the street vendor as a hairless chicken. LOL. That image is hella funny. She’s bought by a sickly scholar, who is actually a powerful God in Heaven who was bored (or whatever) and decided to enter the human realm with his memory intact. He can see that she’s a phoenix demon but doesn’t let her know about his knowledge or identity, in order to play tricks on her.

Director is Deng Ke (My Heroic Husband) and scriptwriter is given to Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (original novel author). Sounds good!

Who Is The Murderer with Zhao Li Ying, Xiao Yang, and Dong Zi Jian to air

If you miss Li Ying, she’s finally back on the small screen!

Qiyi describes the story: In the cold winter of 2001, a murder case occurred in the affiliated hospital of a printing factory in Haizhou City. Rookie policeman Leng Xiao Bing (Xiao Yang) and his senior rushed to the scene after receiving a report, but accidentally faced the murderer of the serial murder in Haizhou City. Leng Xiao Bing was timid and afraid to shoot. The murderer fled from the scene and killed his senior, Li Lan. Another witness at the scene is a victim, orphan Xia Mu (Dong Zi Jian), hiding under the bed. In order to stay in the police force, Leng Xiao Bing concealed the fact that he did not dare to shoot, Xia Mu did not expose him either. So far, the murderer has been in the hiding, and the Haizhou case is still pending. Sixteen years later, Xia Mu came to the force for an internship. Threatening with the fact that Leng Xiao Bing didn’t dare to shoot, he coerced him into investigating the case with him. Just as the two pointed their suspicions at the father of the psychologist Shen Yu (Zhao Li Ying), Shen Yu also launched a plan to create a crime of imitation. Then a corpse that had been dead for more than sixteen years caused the three of them to fall into the dark night of souls. The three finally joined forces to trap the real murderer.
