What was a rumor yesterday has been confirmed today as Alan Yu (The Fated General) attends the opening ceremony in Wuxi, China for his upcoming drama The Legend of White Snake 新白娘子传奇. I think this counts as the big reveal for the mystery posters from two years ago though I’m a little confused as to whose pictures were used in the past (was it really them?).
There are a few reasons to be excited about this. For one, Alan Yu finally takes the lead! He’s been a supporting character in every costume drama that he’s starred in that it’ll be nice to see him stepping into leading roles for a change.
He also reunites with Ju Jing Yi (Legend of Yun Xi) who played his love interest in Xuan Yuan Sword: Legend of the Han Clouds. They really didn’t get enough screentime then (you’ll know why when you watch it), so it’ll be cute to see their couple pairing getting another chance. I guess the biggest downside is that there are already two adaptations of the same story that have yet to air – The Destiny of White Snake and Legend of the White Snake. Which one will you be watching?
