Records of Nanyan Studio has released pictures of its two leads Liu Yifei (Once Upon A Time) and Jing Boran (Monster Hunt 2), in character as the mysterious owner of a perfume shop who heals broken hearts and a member of a secretive organisation respectively.
Zhang Hanyun (Princess of Lanling King) plays Wan Daiqing, a young girl who is saved by the male lead and learns martial arts from him, Jin Hao (Su Ranran’s Husband Hunting Journey) plays military officer Yuan Shichen and Liu Mintao (The Disguiser, Nirvana in Fire) costars as the main antagonist. Wei Daxun (Shuttle Love Millennium), Zhao Lixin (Great Expectations) and Zhang Luyi (Legend of the Demon Cat) have also been cast in unspecified roles.
The drama will reportedly expand on the incomplete original manhua and tone down on the supernatural elements to avoid the censors. The first six chapters have been translated into English under the title Records of Southern Mist House.
The 40 episode series is co-directed by Liu Haibo (Chinese Style Relationship) and Ye Zhaoyi (Princess of Lanling King), and is Wu Jiuxi’s (New Year’s Eve of Old Mr. Lee) first solo project as a writer.
