Della Ding Sings for “Legend of Moon and Stars”

Liu Shishi adamantly keeps quiet about the broadcast date for Legend of the Moon and Stars.

Legend of the Moon and Stars (星月传奇), which stars Liu Shishi, Eddie Peng, and Hu Ge, recently gave us its ending theme, titled “Ancient Poem of Old Age” (白头吟). The MV, which is embedded below, is not really anything special (and it looks like someone went crazy with the artistic filters in Photoshop in the beginning), but Della Ding is always worth listening to when it comes to drama soundtracks.

Legend, which is also known as The Song of Desert, is based off Tong Hua‘s book Desert Melody (大漠谣). The series finished filming in 2012, but its broadcast was delayed because of protests of its treatment of history. It’s been rumored that Dragon TV will begin airing Legend of the Moon and Stars in June or August, but so far, no official broadcast date has been announced.

Hu Ge currently stars in a Shanghainese dialect play “Forever Yin Xueyan 永远的尹雪艳”, which is probably only showing in Shanghai theater houses. He also starred in the controversial costume drama Da Mo Yao 大漠谣 (Romance of the Desert) with Liu Shishi and Eddie Peng. There are rumors on the internet about the drama being banned by SARFT, but I can’t find any official sources as of now.

In addition to Hu Ge’s lead role in Da Mo Yao, he will also be making a special appearance in iPartment 4. One of the regular cast member of the popular sitcom recently signed with Tangren – Sun Yizhou 孙艺洲 is now one of the beautiful peopled stored at Tangren Film
