Costume influences seem to draw from all over the Chinese history timeline.
Fighter of the Destiny 择天记 has released stills of more of its characters. Starring Lu Han, Gulnazar, Wu Qian, Yao Di, Zeng Shunxi, Xu Lingyue, Ju Xianhao, Zhang Junzhu, Gao Hanyu, Chen Shu, and Eric Tsang, those who are looking forward to this drama can get a glance through this post.
chinese is not my language . i only get to see tv shows which make to US and are with subtitles. so my knowledge is very limited. still it amuses me to see the mauling of titles when comes to naming them in english .
in this particular case the book has a lovely name translated as “way of choices” ( Zé Tiān Jì – 择天记 ). title reflects the heart of the novel .
btw love the stills / photos you post.
I think it’s mainly kind of a marketing thing since at least at this point it is rare for Chinese dramas to go mainstream in the West. Therefore, sometimes I feel titles are only there “for show.”
The costume designers are taking liberties again. Never seen a such a weird collar as shown in the last picture.
