The Legend of Fuyao has already aired. Here are some stills from last week’s main romantic events, aka the accidentally walking into your otp’s bathroom/bedroom scene.
I haven’t gotten this far yet since the plot kind of simmers down after the Triwizard Tournament, but I can at least vouch for that part. The costumes are pretty, the CGI solid, the plot interesting, and Yang Mi’s really cute in it.
“If there is no way out, then draw your sword” – Meng Fuyao
In Legend of Fuyao, Yang Mi is the independent and kick-ass female lead who never backs down even if the world is against her. She embarks on an adventure to protect the lands, reclaim her identity as a royal of the Xuanji line and defeat the ruler of the Firmament. Ethan Ruan plays her protector and love interest Zhangsun Wuji.
The 66 episode drama airs 2 episodes every Monday-Thursday evening beginning tonight (Viki).
Ending theme: Love is Hard to Find by Lala Hsu

I was able to recognized 34 of the 42 without looking at the list of names, how many can you identify?
Youth and The Liquidator both cancelled their September/October air dates pretty abruptly, and it was reportedly because some of the scenes couldn’t pass by censorship board. Both movies have gotten new premiere dates – Youth will be released in cinemas on December 15th, while The Liquidator will follow on December 22nd.
