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.
I wish the show looked like this poster.

Potentially his best magazine profile shot since his photoshoot with Liu Yifei?
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.
Yang Yang looks like he came out of the anime .
Yang Yang looks even better than he did as a gamer in O2O in these first footages released of him filming The King’s Avatar 全职高手.

When designer Lawrence Xu puked rainbow unicorns over Liu Yifei and Yang Yang.
Liu Yifei is pretty much the definition of fairylike for me, and so I was so excited when she announced she’ll be playing a fox immortal in Once Upon a Time三生三世十里桃花. Unfortunately, even her and Yang Yang’s face could not savage the film’s undeveloped characters, zero chemistry, poor acting, and atrocious aesthetics.
The film opens as Bai Qian (Liu Yifei), a fox fairy that is 30,000-years-old, runs through the forest like fairies do and then enters a giant jellyfish carriage to attend a wedding. There we find out that the immortals have terrible taste in fashion, and Bai Qian finds a wandering child who speaks like Siri. Soon we learn that Bai Qian looks just like the child’s mother, and the child’s father is her betrothed (Yang Yang) . What a small world!
It’s hard to criticize this face, but it’s about the only thing going for the film.
Liu Yifei and Yang Yang‘s fantasy romance film Once Upon a Time has released a pretty new teaser, and focuses on Bai Qian / Susu and Ye Hua’s heart-wrenching romance. Images of significant locations have also been released – for those familiar with the source novel (or drama adaption), how many can you recognise?
The King’s Avatar 全职高手 is based on the web serial novel of the same name by Hudie Lan, and stars Yang Yang (I Belonged To You) as Ye Xiu, the best professional player in online game Glory.
