Who’s your OTP in Ancient Sword?


Did you know that if you Baidu 古剑奇谭, you find a poll asking whether Qingxue (Yang Mi‘s character) or Shaogong (Qiao Zhenyu’s character) is the true love of Li Yifeng‘s character, Baili Tusu? As I type this, Qingxue is winning, but Shaogong still has over 250k+ votes (which keeps increasing: as of August 2nd, it’s at 340k+). (I haven’t figured out how to vote yet, but if we’re talking about the drama, the bromance between the two guys is more than a match for what’s been shown between Tusu and Qingxue…). idarklight believes the only reason why Dashixiong isn’t in this vote is because he would win by a landslide.

Asides from that, Ancient Sword 古剑奇谭 is still slowly airing on Hunan TV. Who do you ship? Ma Tianyu‘s adorable and mischievous young master with Zheng Shuang‘s fox demon, or Zhang Na‘s frail young lady? William Chan‘s eldest disciple with his sect sister? Qiao Zhenyu‘s physician with his childhood friend Zhang Meng, or his dead lover Gillian Chung?

Qiao Zhenyu, Gillian Chung for Ancient Sword

Qiao Zhenyu is too pretty

Qiao Zhenyu’s face is sufficient reason for you to watch this.

Li Yifeng must have it really hard when both of the other two male leads are so much prettier than him. This week, we feature Qiao Zhenyu and Gillian Chung, the once happily married couple of currently-airing series The Legend of Ancient Sword.  Qiao Zhenyu plays one of the two titular characters of the first game, the current life of an immortal master musician punished to the human world and caught in the wheel of reincarnation.  In the process, his soul was split into four horcruxes parts, and the loss made him slowly lose his memory and rationality as he seeks to be whole again.

Stills of Qiao Zhenyu and Gillian Chung below the cut, and Qiao Zhenyu trailer below. Can you spot the Zhang Meng among the stills?

Stills of Ma Tianyu, the “female lead” aka goofball of “Legend of the Ancient Sword.” Ma Tianyu is really the winner of the show, with William Chan as his brother, Zhang Meng as his sister, Qi Wei as his fiancee, Zhang Na as his first love, and Zheng Shuang as his current love.

Ma Tianyu, Zheng Shuang adorable for Ancient Sword

Can you count how many times Ma Tianyu got hurt in this trailer?

Before, I was definitely just watching for the cast, but this trailer for The Legend of Ancient Sword settles it once and for all that this will be a fun drama to watch. Zheng Shuang and Ma Tianyu are hilarious, Yang Mi is cute, and even Li Yifeng is adorable in this.

Trailer below.  I’m so excited for next week!

Ancient Sword releases opening, ending by Zhang Jie, Yu Kewei

The OCD in me wishes they were arranged by the colors of the rainbow.

Crazy cast Legend of the Ancient Sword released its  opening theme, Heart of the Sword 剑心, by Zhang Jie, and the ending theme, Faraway远方by Yu Kewei.

The series has a ridiculously gorgeous cast of Li Yifeng, Yang Mi,  Zheng Shuang, Qiao Zhenyu, Ma Tianyu, Gillian Chung, William Chan, Chen Zihan, Dilireba, Li Xiaolu, Zhang Meng, and Qi Wei, and will begin airing next Wednesday.

Which song do you like more? Who do you look forward to the most?

Li Yifeng, Li Xiaolu, Yang Mi in first of Ancient Sword MV’s

“Come out, damned spot! Out, I command you! “

Upcoming super cast Legend of Ancient Sword 古剑奇谭 released the first of a series of songs.   This theme to one of the two titular characters,  Baili Tusu (nicknamed Susu), is sung by Li Yifeng and written by Lu Hu. The MV  focuses on Susu’s relationship with his mother (Li Xiaolu) and love interest (Yang Mi).

In addition, the OST cast has been announced to feature an all-star cast of Anson Hu, Yu Kewei, Jeff Chang, and Zhang Jie. I can see this easily being one of the best OST’s outside of ee-Media.

The title of the song, 剑伤 (literally Sword Wounds), is a double reference to wounds caused by the Sword and wounds of the Sword as embodied by Li Yifeng’s character.

Leading females gather for “Ancient Sword”

Seven leading females in one drama? Yes, please!

Ancient Sword must have one of the most incredible female casts in a while, with at least seven of them being regular drama leads by themselves.  The series boasts a cast of Yang Mi, Zheng Shuang, Gillian Chung, Zhang Meng, Li XiaoluChen Zihan,Dilireba, Zhang Na, Wang Yimiao, and Qi Wei.

I can’t believe we never posted character posters for this, but as the series is scheduled to air in July, be prepared for a lot of photo spam. Female character posters below the cut.

Zheng Shuang’s back! (and single)

Zheng Shuang

There’s something about Zheng Shuang (is it her honesty?) that no matter what she does or how much they bash her dramas or films, everyone still likes her.

Two things always come to mind about Zheng Shuang : she cannot lie, and she was willing to donate her bone marrow to a stranger without any second thoughts. After four years of almost filming nothing except for an occasional role with Zhang Han, Zheng Shuang is returning with new looks, new perspectives, three new dramas, and even a new restaurant.

“Happiness should be fought for by yourself. You can’t just get it by waiting at home for someone else,” said Zheng Shuang. “I think that both girls and boys should have their own career.”    She’s already filmed three dramas since her return, including a Ancient Sword, Beauty’s Private Kitchen 美人私房菜 with Ma Tianyu, and The Cage of Love.  That’s the same number of leading dramas as she’s done in the past five years.

After being bombarded by reporters with all sorts of loaded questions at press conferences for her two new dramas, Zheng Shuang finally admitted that she broke up with Zhang Han.   Continue reading
