Once a video game character, always a video game character. After Chinese Paladin 3, Hu Ge, Yuan Hong, Liu Shishi and Tang Yan meet again for another online game, this time as the spokespeople for the latest spinoff version of one of the biggest Chinese online games – Zhu Xian/Jade Dynasty. Separated from her two true loves, Yang Mi is instead the cover girl for a new online game called Tian Xia.
I think everyone’s been waiting for Shanghai Tangren (CP,CP3,Fairy in Wonderland, Young Warriors of the Yang Clan 2006, LoCH 2008) to make a drama out of the Zhu Xian series, especially because there is a popular novel based on the game. And since Tangren hasn’t done anything recently, as its big star Hu Ge was off doing The Myth by EGM, this could possibly be their next series. Or, maybe Huayi will take it up since Zhou Xun just sung the theme for Zhu Xian 2. I’m still waiting for that mermaid movie, Huayi.
