I can count on one hand how many dramas I watched from beginning to end, so I’ve decided to do things differently this year and shine the spotlight on the characters that I really liked. Feel free to submit your own reviews and posts here.
Perhaps to celebrate its lead’s 20th birthday, xianxia drama Legend of Awakening released its first video previews today. This includes the MV for the theme song by Wang Sulong (below), as well as previews for the leads on Weibo here.

Chen Feiyu has bowed out of Ever Night Season 2- Wang Hedi takes over the role of Ning Que, while Song Yiren will reprise her role as Sangsang.
Legend of Awakeningis an upcoming fantasy drama based on Hudie Lan’s novel of the same name, and stars Chen Feiyu(Ever Night), Xiong Ziqi(One and Another Him), Cheng Xiao (Cosmic Girls) and Deng Enxi(Last Letter) as youngsters who are recruited and trained as warriors.
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 has the youngest leads yet for a major production, with Chen Feiyu born in 2000 and Deng Enxin in 2005.
