    • Same, the story seems so mainstream, but the cast and the producers make me curious about the final product. We will have to wait a bit more to actually see stills and get a concrete idea..

    Guli Nazha? She’s captivating onscreen, but her acting says otherwise. All of a sudden I’m seeing her everywhere, lol She was in that fox drama followed by The Classic of Mountains and Seas. She was a guest in God of War and Go Goal Fighting. Her new drama, First Love, is airing and then CP5 will air in June. What a busy gal!


    • Her acting definitely improved compared to when she debuted (she did Xuan Yuan Sword if you are curious), but her acting is still lacking. Yop, now that you list all her projects, she does sound to be everywhere! And let’s not forget that the girl also has a boyfriend. Busy busy bee~


  2. I really love your site.. Great colors & theme. Did you build this site yourself?
    Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my own blog and want to find out where you got this from or exactly what the theme is called.
    Thank you!

      Hi Jason!
      No, the site is freely hosted by WordPress and we use the free theme Sorbet. I really like it too since it allows readers to just scroll down and get all the information 🙂

    The novel have this peaceful and tranquil atmosphere in it. I have no idea if the series wil be able to capture that feeling. They change several things from the original story (Chen Cang San’s reason to go to the city is because he’s the one dying, not his master).

    Can’t wait for the drama


    • It sounds like a big project, especially considering that they casted Luhan for the first time in a drama! I am not a 100% won over by Guli Nezha’s acting though… Ahhh, I see! Maybe, they wanted want the male lead to look too weak! I hope Luhan will do well in this project.

    Im not a fan of tv dramas, but i’ll make an exception for FOTD. And the synopsis, isnt it his disease instead of his master’s?
    2017.. still far ahead


  7. Does the drama has the same title as the novel?
    I read the tl novel and it is entitled “way of choices”. Anyway, i’m here because i like the novel though i’ve only read until the latest tld chapter, 271.
    Looking forward to the series though i really do think they changed a lot from the novel. I wish to see gou hanshi moving huhu and i ship chen changsheng with loulou not xu yourong 😦
