    Wallace is going to kill this role in a good way but I actually think it would have been better casted as He Xia since he is a more complex because even at the end of the novel I didn’t find myself hating him for all the horrible things he did I mean he does some unforgivable things but I think is going to be hard to pull off unless the drama changes the character making him completely unlikable. I can already tell how different this might be from the novel makes me sad because this novel is really beautiful imo I rather see an anime for it because I discovered the manhua first just wishful thinking

      Wallace Chung definitely took on all kind of roles during the past few years so he is probably better as the male lead 😛 I didn’t read the book but I am really excited for this drama 😀

    This turned out to be better than I expected. I think that they did toned down Angelababy’s prettiness to fit the role of Bai Ping Ting. I think that Sun Yi Zhou would do a good job as the complex He Xia. He was quite good in Scarlet Heart 2 (yes, that Scarlet Heart) despite the horrible plot and script.


  3. actually, I’m quite disappointed with the cast.

    first, bai ping ting isn’t a beauty, but her charm and brain makes her shine. definitely not an Angelababy, she is too beautiful to became bai ping ting, maybe right for princess yaotian.

    two, chu Bei jie is an devilish handsome. and wallace is too gentle for him. but i agree with lucy. maybe he would better casted as he xia. he is handsome, gentle, yet complicated character.

    i just hope the drama would be the same with the book since its very very dearly to me. its makes me sad, laugh, and love it until the end. its a bittersweet story….

      Awwnn… I don’t know what the story is… but hopefully the drama will stay true to the original story. A lot of people approved of Angelababy’s casting and she isn’t a bad actress… so maybe it will turn out well?

      The project looks good… so far xD

        The novel is awesome totally an easy read and nothing too complicated where you are like wait did I miss something and have to reread. Also the translation by CMK scans or xah is well done one of the better English translations of novels I’ve read.


    • Lucy says:

      I adore this novel and I agree with AB cast but this is a big project so it needed a big name but she really is too beautiful to be Pingting so would have been better casted as YangFeng or Princess Yaoting but I hope she will do the role justice not like how she ruined Yunge for me but Yu zheng can be to blame for that too changing o much of the story such a disappointment

    Whoa…I adore ABB’s image in here. Her costumes are lovely. She’s given white to show her simpleness. Hope her acting is better than what I saw in YZG lol

    Is it me or does the 4th guy from the top down look like Raymond Lam?

    Every characters look good so far. Wallace here actually look very young with that bun style of hair. Normally, that hair style makes them very mature looking.

    Sun (although very handsome) probably age 5 or so more years then his modern look. I feel he hit the jackpot with this role. HeXia was such an interesting character. From the beginning, he was mysterious and then as the story progresses, he gradually changes into this ambitious and cold character has he slowly losing his only family member left, Pingting.

    Love the updates on this drama, please keep them coming!!!
