Heavy Sweetness, Ash-Like Frost is an upcoming fantasy drama starring Yang Zi (Legend of the Dragon Pearl), Deng Lun (Ode to Joy 2) and Luo Yunxi (A Life Time Love) as celestial beings who get involved in a love triangle.
Jin Mi (Yang Zi) is the daughter of a flower deity who can’t feel or express romantic love due to being fed a magical pill at birth. She first meets the Heavenly Prince Xufeng (Deng Lun) in his true form as a phoenix, though mistakes him for a crow due to his burnt feathers. There’s co-habitation shenanigans and cute misunderstandings aplenty due to Jin Mi’s condition, though the story takes a dip in melodrama territory when Jin Mi is tricked into killing Xufeng.
A decade later, Xufeng is now ruler of the demon world, while Jin Mi’s other suitor the Night Deity (Luo Yunxi) has inherited the Heavenly throne. Unable to resolve the misunderstandings between herself and Xufeng, Jin Mi sacrifices herself in the final battle, and is transformed into one of Xufeng’s teardrops. Many years later, Jin Mi is restored to life with the help of the flower deities, and is able to live happily ever after with Xu Feng in the mortal world. Costars include Chen Yuqi (Fresh Teachers) as princess of the demons and Wang Yifei (Pretty Li Huizhen) as leader of the bird clan who has a one-sided love for Xu Feng.
The 50 episode drama is directed by Zhu Ruibin (Noble Aspirations) and written by Zhang Yuan’ang (The Mystic Nine).
