The drama will consist of several standalone stories, much like Tangren’s previous Liaozhai and Fox series.

Twelve Legends tells of the thousand year romance between a luminous night pearl (Nazha as the human form) and a rock (Jasper Liu as the human form). [Extended Synopsis]

The 32 episode drama premieres on Youku tonight.

Promo Round-up: Weaving A Tale of Love

Fun fact: This is the first period show to premiere on primetime television since Legend of Xiao Chuo in November, and Hunan’s first primetime period show since Serenade of Joy in April 2020.

Weaving A Tale of Love 风起霓裳 (previously Bright Moon of the Tang Dynasty 大唐明月) apparently has nothing to do with the original novel, but Hunan TV’s teasers do make the show look appealing in its own right. The period romance stars Nazha as an imperial seamstress who wants to avenge her mother’s death and Xu Weizhou as her love interest. [Extended]

The 40 episode drama is a loose adaption of the first half of the novel, and releases 2 episodes every Sun-Thurs and 1 episode every Fri-Sat.
