Yang Zi plays Bai Yaoyao, the titular white snake who hopes to become a deity after a thousand years of cultivation. Ren Jialun plays Xu Xuan / Xu Xian, young master of a medicine valley who meets and falls in love with the snake spirit. In this adaption, Bai Yaoyao will have a more innocent and lively personality, while Xu Xuan will be less naïve and gullible. A more detailed summary of the original folktale can be found here.
Mao Zijun plays Qi Xiao / Fa Hai, who reportedly only becomes a monk at the conclusion of the drama . There will also be a new antagonist in the form of Xu Xuan’s jealous disciple sister, who wreaks havoc on the human world by freeing a mythological dragon from its dungeon.
Than for the update I’ve been waiting for this.
