Luo Yunxi, Chen Feiyu’s Immortality releases first looks

The drama, featuring Luo Yunxi as a teacher of Chen Feiyu in a battle of good vs evil, was originally sold to be the most expensive BL drama made, we’re not so sure anymore given all the other ones that have came into the mix (such as Zhang Zhehan Gong Jun’s A Tale of the Wanderers, Jing Boran, Song Weilong’s The Society of Four Leaves, and Tan Jianci and Chen Zheyuan’s Winner is King, as well as several big projects in pre-production). I feel like this one has the best team (Ashes of Love CGI and world-building, Tribes and Empires costume designer, World of Dugu director) and most shippable leads, but we’ll have to wait to see who comes out on top in the end.
