The Untamed is now available with English Subs on Youtube here. The bromance series, which aired without much warning, also finally released some more promotional materials. There’s even a trailer! The two leads will also begin their promotional tour soon, including filming Happy Camp this week. I haven’t had the time to watch it yet, but it’s definitely gaining traction among the slash shipping fandom. How does it measure to your expectations?Continue reading
Bromance xianxia drama The Untamed 陈情令, a very loose adaption of Moxiang Tongxiu’s BL novel Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation 魔道祖师, has finally aired today. The series stars Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo as the two leads, with Meng Ziyi playing the third wheel. The series is available on Tencent here, with two new episodes every Thursday and Friday.
I would do a promos round-up but the series aired so suddenly that there are no new promotional materials other than the posters, stills, and promotional shoot previous posted.
Opening theme:Continue reading
The two leads of bromance drama The Untamed 陈情令 posed together (?) for a promotional photoshoot by Zack Zhang. I really hope Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo didn’t take the time to do this photoshoot together because even though it’s pretty, it looks like they were photoshopped together in the one photo they appear together.
Posters, stills, photoshoots, and random photos that caught my eye this week. This week is all mostly rising actors with a few drama stills
Liu Haoran, Wu Lei, Li Yuchun, Cai Xukun, Yang Mi, Tong Liya, Han Geng, Kim Jaejoong, Zhai Tianlin, Yin Zheng, Gulnazar, Jing Boran, Zhou Dongyu, Xiao Zhan, Li Qin,
Wei Daxun Dong Li,etc. pose as if they were at a press conference for a Cosmo event. The photoshoot is probably one of the more interesting “event photoshoots” lately, although they didn’t even bother to change the color palette when they ripped off of a Ni Ni Gucci ad.
Who looked the best?
I’m not even sure if I want to watch BL drama The Untamed, but I couldn’t say no to posting pictures of pretty people in ancient garb. Xiao Zhan plays a carefree young hero of the Jiang clan who appears 16 years later as the founder of the demonic sect, and controls an army of walking corpses. Wang Yibo (variety show Produce 101) costars as the righteous Lan Wangji, a cultivator of the orthodox sects.
