We learn two things today. First, that the casting rumors pairing up Dilraba Dilmurat and Shawn Dou are true (yess!!). Second, that it has finally begun filming. Shawn Dou was present for the opening ceremonies of Legend of Sun and Moon 日月传奇, which as the title implies is about a legendary story about two well-known deities.
The production team has been preparing for this movie for two years and they are introducing it as a fantasy romance comedy. I wasn’t expecting comedy, but a little humor is always welcome especially in the face of a sad love story. If it goes by the Chinese folklore, the main couple are separated as the heroine ends up on the moon. Dilraba Dilmurat wasn’t able to attend as she’s currently in Europe for Milan Fashion Week.
