Bloody Romance 媚者无疆 is a Chinese wuxia series adapted from a novel written by Ban Ming Ban Mei 半明半寐. The title seems perfectly apt for a story that is meant to be both thrilling and provocative.
Our heroine, Wan Mei, is a woman who goes through hell and back to become an assassin. She has to deal with a myriad of personalities such as Cha Meng, the cruel and impulsive master of Gui Men, the gentle Xing Feng and the blind prince Gong Zi.
Wan Mei falls for Ying Zi, a man who stays by her side like a shadow. While it’s based on an erotic novel, I have a feeling the drama adaptation will be a lot milder in all aspects to make it appropriate for a c-drama and already, the focus seems to have shifted to a romance between two people in a complicated world or should we say three given the two male leads Ying Zi and Gong Zi revolving around our heroine have the story setup for a love triangle.
It stars Li Yitong (Sword Dynasty), Qu Chuxiao (Rule the World), Wang Duo (Inference Notes), Li ZiFeng (Demon Catcher Zhong Kui), Puff Guo (Shuttle Love Millennium), Jill Hsu (To Be With You), Marguax Ma Ge, Liu Mengmeng (The Starry Night The Starry Sea 2) and Zhuo Yuqian. I recognize a few faces in the cast, but it’s really the plot that has me intrigued.
Release Date: July 24, 2018 Youku (episodes released every Tuesday and Friday at 8pm)
