Mirror: A Tale of Twin Cities with Li Yi Feng and Chen Yu Qi confirms broadcast date in January

Aha! Here’s the first big ancient drama of the year! Mirror: A Tale of Twin Cities or used to be called Mirror Twin Cities (镜双城) has confirmed its broadcast date! It is based on the novel written by Cang Yue (Listening Snow Tower). It’s the first novel in her Mirror series. Persisting war in Central Plains forces optimistic Miao girl named Na Sheng to leave her home and wanting to escape the chaos of the world by going to an otherworldly fairy land, known as Desolate Clouds. During this journey, she meets many interesting characters, including our male lead, Su Mo, who is a blind masterful Puppeteer and carries around 2-foot high puppet he refers to as his brother, A Nuo. But is Desolate Clouds really a peaceful utopia as told from generation to generation? I guess not because what awaits our heroine is turmoil and bloodshed among many races and peoples.

Above is my quickie summary of the novel… and as you know…drama might be different. Viki Summary: In a world populated by powerful gods and warring mortals, two enchanted beings meet in a peace-filled realm: They are Su Mo (Li Yi Feng), a prince of sea gods, and Bai Ying (Chen Yu Qi), a princess and descendant of a mighty sword deity. They are immediately attracted to one another and begin on a romance, unaware that they are effectively crossing enemy lines and sparking animosity between two warring factions. Their actions anger other deities and Su Mo is eventually expelled from the realm. Overcome with grief, Bai Ying attempts to put her existence to an end by jumping from a magnificent pagoda.

However, three tender-hearted female deities intervene to save her from a cruel fate, although she falls into a slumber that lasts for years, leaving her father devastated. She eventually emerges, but under a brand new guise. When Su Mo becomes the sea emperor, he goes in search of his love – but fierce battles are raging in multiple realms, putting the future of both the sea world and the sword folk at terrible risk. Can they save their respective worlds – and can love bring them together once more?

Airing 1/16~
