Legend of Fei 有翡 is an upcoming wuxia drama that depicts the growth of a female warrior in a time when the influence and power of the pugilist world (wulin) is on decline. Zhao Liying plays the likable heroine Zhou Fei, and Wang Yibo plays a carefree martial artist who is later revealed to be Xie Yun, the Prince of Duan.
My expectations are pretty low given the fact that sequels never work, though with directors Kong Sheng and Li Xue at the helm, it’s bound to look gorgeous.The 50 episode drama will air two episodes every Monday to Wednesday on Dragon and Beijing TV beginning tonight. English subs will be available on Dramafever and Viki.

She has the opportunity to leave the country and dance abroad, but reality becomes an obstacle, and Xu Nuo tries to cheer her up by preparing a surprise…yet this “surprise” forces these impulsive youths to pay a significant price.
The theme song was sung by Angela Wang Shiling (Dad, Where Are You?) and the director of the movie, He Jiong! Look below the cut for more pictures. Li Yifeng also lends his voice for two theme songs. Continue reading →
