The Rise of Phoenixes 天盛长歌 finally wrapped in Guizhou after almost two hundred days of filming. As the main leads, Chen Kun and Ni Ni were among the last to finish their scenes and both were crying by the end of the journey. Chen Kun was always the fan favorite to play the titular lead and he has expressed his love for the character many times before that it’s no wonder that he would become emotional at the thought of goodbye.
Fellow actor Ni Da Hong who wrapped his scenes as the Emperor more than a week ago purposely flew in as a surprise guest. Chen Kun welcomed him with a big hug while tearing up. The two seem to be really good friends as Chen Kun previously gave Ni Da Hong a big kiss when it was his last day. As the way these things go, there were many bouquets of flowers handed to members of the cast that also include Zhao Li Xin, Yuan Hong, Wang Ou, Bai Jing Ting and Zhang Xiao Chen.
