Legend of Awakening has the youngest cast yet for a major production

With the youngest leads yet for a major  production,  xianxia series Legend of Awakening 天醒之路 has recently began filming on-location in Xinjiang and Ningxia. The series stars Chen Feiyu, Deng Enxi, Xiong Ziqi, and Cheng Xiao of Cosmic Girls and seems to follow the typical xianxia mold of a group of young people journeying across a fantasy land while fighting bad guys.

The series has the youngest leads yet for a major  production, with Chen Feiyu born in 2000 and Deng Enxin in 2005. The previous two are currently streaming Youku series Eagles and Youngsters, with Wang Junkai (1999) and Wenqi (2003),  and upcoming series The Great Lord , with Wang Yuan (2000) and Ouyang Nana (2000).

Zhang Zifeng falls for two different Xiong Ziqi’s in One and Another Him

Following the now common tale of a cold, brilliant soul  and a friendly, goofy soul living in the body of one hot love interest, One and Another Him 我和两个ta looks like a dupe of a bunch of other similar dramas like Fool in Love with You^2 and Two Spirits’ Love. Zhang Zifeng (Chinatown Detective) can be a brilliant actress at times, though, so it might be good.

Xiong Ziqi plays the male lead while  Liu Jianyu, Liu Yichang, and Xia Ruoyan round up the rest of the cast.  I don’t know the supporting cast but they look cute.

The Heart Painter stills

Definitely a difference from current “good” drama productions in terms of production but it’s not bad.

The Heart Painter 画心师 stills again today.  Starring Xiong Ziqi, Zhu Xudan, Li Junchen, Bao Tianqi, Sun Bohao, Huang Tianqi, Qiu Haoxuan, Maggie Siu, Zhong Jiufu, He Zhonghua, Gao Xiong, and Fang Xiaoxi, those waiting on this production can get a better look through these stills.
