The premise sounds less gut-wrenching that the usual Fei Wo Si Cun adaptations that I’m used to and noticeably lacking a vengeful streak though I suppose it’s wise to assume that there will still be a fairly heavy dose of melodrama given the addition of a third wheel and a ruthless competitor as the villains.
I can’t end the post without sneaking in a Princess Agents easter egg because how poetic is it that Li Qin and Shawn Dou can get together this time? Update: Four years after filming wrapped, Tears in Heaven finally secures a release date of June 23, 2021 on LeTV, MGTV, iQIYI, Tencent and Youku.
