Streaming website iQiyi recently released trailers and news for a slew of upcoming shows that will either air exclusively on the site as web dramas or on national networks next year. Which shows are you looking forward to most?
Here’s the first trailer for The Destiny of White Snake, a re-imagination of the popular Chinese legend about a thousand-year old snake demon who falls in love with a human. Yang Zi (Legend of the Dragon Pearl) and Ren Jialun (Glory of Tang Dynasty) play a white snake spirit (what’s with the cartoon CGI?) and a deity respectively, who fall in love and are subsequently banished to the mortal world.
Legend of the Dragon Pearl: The Indistinguishable Road 龙珠传奇之无间道 has released a couple more stills. Starring Yang Zi, Qin Junjie, Mao Zijun, Shu Chang, He Zhonghua, and Zhang Na, couple more images I don’t believe we’ve posted yet for those interested.
