Sadly, the star-crossed lovers’ disparate positions put them at odds with each other at a time when the four warring states of Jin, Yan, Liang and Qin are in constant turmoil.
The cast is led by Wallace Chung, Angelababy, Sun Yi Zhou, Gan Ting Ting, Yu Bo, Qi Hang and Mai Di Na (Ice Fantasy). I have always liked Wallace Chung since his younger days and call me impressed that he is still snagging commendable roles at the age of 41. Angelababy plays his love interest though I hope it’s not a repeat of Song in the Clouds, which despite the hype fell very flat.
Release Date: Jan 2, 2017 on Hunan TV (eng subs on Dramafever)
