With Legend of Fuyao and Sweet Dreams airing this month, it’s interesting that a mix and match in casting has led to a new pairing. Bambi Zhu Xudan is known for playing second, sometimes third fiddle in many Jaywalk Studio productions after Yang Mi and Dilraba Dilmurat. This time, she takes the lead opposite Ethan Ruan. We all know that Ethan Ruan is currently romancing Yang Mi in the recently-aired Fuyao, so it’s quite amusing how things have worked out.
The story revolves around a military officer who falls in love with a beautiful woman whilst working together to fight a greater enemy. It pretty much sounds like the standard issue Republican drama. The Way We Were star Wang Tianchen plays the second lead. Other stars include Qin Han, Sun Chun, etc.
Filming began in Hengdian World Studios on June 18, 2018, which also happened to fall on Dwanwu Festival.
This is a very random observation but Lv Xing who’s one of the supporting characters was the second lead in the 2005 drama My Bratty Princess led by Jang Nara and Alec Su. It’s crazy how time flies.
