It seems like the training Yang Yang took part in for Glory of the Special Forces has paid off, because the first trailer looks pretty good. Li Yitong also made an official appearance at the Tencent press conference, and has confirmed that she will be playing Ai Qianxue, the hero’s main love interest. [Extended Synopsis]
Upcoming military drama Glory of the Special Forces 特战荣耀 (lit.) stars Yang Yang (Martial Universe) as Yan Poyue, a high school student who comes from a family of soldiers. He forgoes the university entrance examinations and joins the armed police force in order to prove his worth to his father.
Actor Yang Yang is captured by Wei Lai in what is actually a car ad posing as an editorial, but I’ll take what I can get of his pretty face.
Yang Yang’s Martial Universe is currently streaming, and he was recently on Happy Camp last week. Also watch his recent ads for Lay’s, Pepsi, and this car.
Martial Universe 武动乾坤 follows Lin Dong’s (Yang Yang) journey as he levels up to become the most powerful fighter in the land, and protects the world from an attack by the demons. Zhang Tian’ai and Wang Likun play his love interests. It’s also acclaimed historical drama director Zhang Li’s (Ming Dynasty 1566) first attempt at a fantasy drama, so I’m curious to see the outcome.
The 40 episode drama has been split into two parts, and will air in the 10pm time slot from Tuesday to Thursday on Dragon TV beginning tonight. Watch on Youtube here.
