Bromance drama Winner is King 杀破狼 has finally finished filming and it unfortunately looks like every other historical drama, with almost no signs the story is set in a silkpunk ancient world. The cast looks cute, though. The series is an adaption of Priest’s BL novel of the same name, and has cast Tan Jianci(The Advisors Alliance) and Chen Zheyuan(The Handsome Siblings) as the leads.
When Republican-era doctor Mu Xingchen (Zhao Lusi) stumbles upon a mysterious land that hasn’t caught up with modern times, she befriends prince Ye Yunshang (Li Hongyi). Seeking to escape the court politics wrecking his family, he returns with her to Republican Era China (yikes, he might as well have stayed where he was). So begins a journey of the only prince in Republican Era China in fantasy rom-com Prodigy Healer 青囊传.
The series is directed by Hu Xuxi (New Detective Squad) and written by a team of scriptwriters. It’s set to be released late this month.
