Gu Jian Qi Tan releases character stills and trailer

The rest of the stills border on bad cosplay, but Zheng Shuang and Ma Tianyu look wonderful as their respective characters.

The costumes that the characters wear in upcoming drama Gu Jian Qi Tan (Legend of the Sword) are remarkably similar to the ones in the eponymous game. A little too similar, since everyone besides Zheng Shuang and Ma Tianyu look like they were transplanted, but otherwise, the cast is promising. We have Yang Mi‘s return to wuxia as the protagonist, a somewhat sheltered and spunky girl who is part of the  Nüwa clan (but is not one of the descendants). She eventually falls in love with the cold male lead (played by Li Yifeng), a young man who possesses the fourth fragment of a fallen deity’s soul (and a horrible hairstyle). They are joined by Zheng Shuang‘s half-fox, half-mortal girl looking for her mother, and Ma Tianyu‘s slightly spoiled and scholarly young-master. Their core group of six is rounded off with Yang Mi’s older brother, Gao Weiguang‘s drunken swordsman, and the red-robed sword spirit (played by Chen Zihan) sent to watch over Li Yifeng by his master, a 400-year old immortal played by Zhang Zhiyao.

Just as important, though, is Qiao Zhenyu‘s elegant gentleman, who has the other soul fragments and secretly plots to reclaim the rest. His secret agenda also includes the restoration of the ruined land of Penglai (whose princess was once his beloved wife), no matter the cost. Interesting side-story characters to look out for include Qi Wei, a woman scorned from Ma Tianyu’s previous life, and Li Xiaolu, who plays Li YIfeng’s mother. Look below the cut for the trailer and pictures.

On another note, Ma Tianyu cross-dresses again in the trailer.

  1. Long trailer released here!~
    The first four minutes are…not that great. Zheng Shuang/Ma TIanyu/Yang Mi cuteness after that <3
    …and then it’s back to CG plot and etc. I think I’ll end up fast forwarding for everything with Ma Tianyu and Zheng Shuang, and skip the rest -____-

  2. okay, I just cannot get over the male lead’s hair.
    I checked; it’s supposed to look like that in the game, but that’s a /game/ and he looks horrible with it here TT____TT

  3. This drama’s female cast is ridiculous. Any one of them could be a female lead in another drama – Yang Mi, ZHeng Shuang, Gillian Chung, Li Xiaolu, Zhang Meng, Qi Wei, and even Dili
