Chen Feiyu in The Forbidden Palace, someone cast him as The Last Emperor!

This photoshoot of Chen Feiyu in The Forbidden Palace is not only visually stunning but gives me so much Puyi (China’s last emperor) vibes that after starring at the photos long enough, I decided Chen Feiyu could definitely pass for a better-looking Puyi. Someone hurry and make another drama or film about him while Chen Feiyu is still young. Hey Chen Kaige, here’s your chance for a great Puyi bioepic.

Chen Feiyu just finished up filming for  Legend of Awakening and has been seen at auditions for the Beijing Film Academy. He was also studying for the SAT’s last year, so he may also come back to the US for college.

Ever Night stills round-up

I’m slightly obsessed with how intricate that cape collar looks.

This week’s installment of new Ever Night stills. Rumor is that season 2, where the story really goes off the rails (it’s like the The Amber Spyglass vs season 1’s The Golden Compass), might switch out Chen Feiyu. If so I hope they also switch out Song Yiren because her character is supposed to be tall and chubby later on, and I can just not watch it since neither lead is in it.

Review: Ever Night Episodes 1 – 12

The two leads’ daily interactions are adorable.cr: 不吃菜XBS

Pros:

  • the leads are super cute together
  • stylized fight scenes
  • original soundtrack by Roc Chen ( A Bite of China)
  • Song Yiren is perfect for the role
  • Chen Feiyu is charming and has some acting potential
  • Tong Yao’s gorgeous
  • the scenery
  • a couple of the supporting cast is great. My favorite is  Yin Taosheng as the head of the outpost at the beginning
  • first female director + scriptwriter for a male-lead Xianxia drama

Despite clear shortcomings, Chen Feiyu has some acting potential.

Legend of Awakening has the youngest cast yet for a major production

With the youngest leads yet for a major  production,  xianxia series Legend of Awakening 天醒之路 has recently began filming on-location in Xinjiang and Ningxia. The series stars Chen Feiyu, Deng Enxi, Xiong Ziqi, and Cheng Xiao of Cosmic Girls and seems to follow the typical xianxia mold of a group of young people journeying across a fantasy land while fighting bad guys.

The series has the youngest leads yet for a major  production, with Chen Feiyu born in 2000 and Deng Enxin in 2005. The previous two are currently streaming Youku series Eagles and Youngsters, with Wang Junkai (1999) and Wenqi (2003),  and upcoming series The Great Lord , with Wang Yuan (2000) and Ouyang Nana (2000).
