Meeting the Dragon 遇龙 (lit.) stars Dylan Wang as Weichi Longyan, a two thousand-year old dragon king who is saved by kind-hearted young maidservant Liu Ying (Zhu Xudan).
From classics like Daming Palace/Palace of Desire and Chinese Paladin to recent films like The Legend of Demon Cat and Cry Me a Sad River, Tencent’s new acting competition Attention, Actors 演员倾就位 combines the best of I am an actor and Phantastic by capturing the actors for a TV performance rather than on stage while still maintaining an one-take rule.

Plus, they have some great stills and posters that are better than many dramas and film posters that are wallpaper-worthy. You can watch episode two English subbed here. Zhang Yunlong and Chen Xiaoyun act out Romance in the Rain:Continue reading
Four actresses who have recently starred in Jin Yong dramas – Janice Man (as Wang Yuyan), Chen Yuqi (as Zhao Min), Zhu Xudan (as Zhou Zhiruo), and Su Qing (as Azhu) – pose for this wuxia-themed photoshoot by Leslie Zhang Jiacheng.
Heavenly Sword and Dragon Slaying Saber the ninth announced its release date of February 27th with a new trailer and a few posters. The series stars Zeng Shunxi, Chen Yuqi, and Zhu Xudan in a fight between three religions and three countries.
Both of the trailers have actually looked interesting to me, and given that there haven’t been a true-to-the-books version made yet, it’ll be interesting to see director Jeffrey Chiang’s take on it given his success with the 2017 version of the Legend of the Condor Heroes.
