Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost 香蜜沉沉烬如霜 has dropped stills of Yang Zi and Deng Lun wearing three sets of costumes and my curiosity is piqued. Are they in different lifetimes? They are gods and deities after all. Whatever it turns out to be, I’m just relieved at the improvement from the initial character posters that were like a bad case of photoshop because c-dramas can be a hit or a miss, but you can almost always count on them to look gorgeous.
This drama adaptation which is based on a fantasy romance novel seems on par in scale with Journey of Flower and Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms. Both made big stars out of their main leads, so I’d be interested to see what it does for the careers of its two rising stars. I was robbed of the chance to see much of Deng Lun in Princess Agents, and I’m hoping that this one more than makes up for it.

I recently finished reading the book, but I'm already getting a different feeling just looking at the costumes in the stills.
