Bai Yu, Zhu Yilong to star in web drama adaption of BL novel

The new supernatural show is titled Guardian 镇魂 and based on famous BL (boy love) author Priest’s novel of the same name. Bai Yu (Memory Lost) and Zhu Yilong (Border Town Prodigal) play male leads Zhao Yunlan and Shen Wei respectively, and the story will focus on their bromance friendship that transcends past and present lifetimes.

Posters have also been revealed for the four sacred objects that will reportedly play a crucial role in the conflict between humans, deities and demons. The rise in popularity of web dramas has prompted China’s censorship agency SAPPRFT to develop stricter guidelines with regards to the content, so it’s unknown how faithful the adaption will remain to the original.

Guardian is directed by Zhou Yuanzhou (Noble Aspirations, Sparrow) and will begin filming in April.
