A while back it was announced that Jackie Chan was producing a drama version of his movie The Myth, and picked Hu Ge to play his part. Hu Ge’s probably sick of ancient dramas at this point, but it’s hard to say no to a Jackie Chan offer (just ask Wang Leehom!). Bai Bing takes over the main female character in the drama, and together she and Hu Ge continue the tradition of singing the lovely themesong. over again.

Hu Ge may not be the most perfect singer but to his credit, he never lip-synchs if he can help it, and once at an event, made them play the track over again.

This MV shows more of the modern day half of the Myth, so I guess you could say Hu Ge is one step closer to doing modern series. It also shows more scenes of Ren Quan, the secondary male character who shows up at 1:03 in the video. Ren Quan, for those who don’t know him, is a Shanghai Theatre Academy graduate and was a classmate and good friend of Li Bingbing. According to her baike, she jokingly responds to questions about marriage plans that if she marries anyone soon it’d be him. He was in a lot of different shows including Young Justice Bao, but I’ve not seen him in a high profile series for a while, so I’m definitely looking forward to checking this one out if I have the time.
