Hmmm, I don’t know what to say about this casting choice. It’s a beautiful group of people for sure but Wu Lei romancing Dilireba is a little odd. Lol. Well, filming has just begun for those interested. The original male lead is Qu Chu Xiao who had to bow out due to management issue. Chang Ge Xing aka Song of the Long March (長歌行) is adapted from the manhua of the same name written by Xia Da. It follows our heroine, who’s a princess on the run. Her father is Crown Prince Li but after the new Emperor ascended the throne, he ordered his brothers and families put to death. She escapes, fakes her own death, disguises herself as a male and plots her revenge against the new Emperor, becoming a fierce military leader in the process. The manhua is highly rated among fans and has solid rating of 9 on douban. Readers also poured their hearts out for the arts as well.
I’m reading reviews and our heroine sounds awesome – merciless and highly intelligent. Since she was young, she was trained in martial arts and battle strategies, so she holds her own in a fight. I always have hopes in the novel description and the drama adaptation hasn’t been accurate …..at all in recent years. Lol. I really do hope she kicks A$$!! Our male protagonist is no less of a worthy character – he’s the adopted son of Jieli Khan, a leader of his own army, who is known for his ruthlessness and doing things his ways in the beginning. He slowly melts that attitude and begins to realize how his actions could affect those around him after meeting our leading lady. But he doesn’t know SHE is a SHE for a little bit. HEH.
Gosh, gosh. Baby Wu Lei needs a few years to really execute that general look. xD
The Killing of Three Thousands Crows (三千鸦杀) is adapted from the novel by Shi Si Lang and stars Zheng Ye Cheng and Zhao Lu Si in a romance that started ten lifetimes ago. She’s the princess of a fallen nation, The Great Yan. To save her own people from enslavement, she vows to find the magical lamp. During her search, she hides out at Xiang Qu Mountain and works there as a servant under the constant teasing of our male lead. Our hero turns out to be the lamp wick to the magical lamp. When the lamp is lit, he will disappear. At the same time, the person who lights the lamp will also be sacrificed! This is an interesting twist. So they are both dead? Lol. I can’t tell you more than that….won’t be fun for your journey. xD
