Legend of White Snake 新白娘子传奇 has wrapped after four months of filming. With The Destiny of White Snake premiering next week, this version will likely be the last to air amongst the recent drama adaptations based on the classic love story. Even so, it stands to be the most faithful to the beloved 1992 TV adaptation starring Angie Chiu and Cecilia Yip.
As this remake is looking very much like an idol drama, there’s bound to be skeptics who are worried about another childhood favorite headed for ruin. After watching Ju Jingyi in Legend of Yunxi, I’m quite optimistic if not downright excited for this especially since she reunites with Alan Yu Menglong from Xuan Yuan Sword: Legend of the Han Clouds. Also in the cast are Xiao Yan (The Legends) and Pei Zitian (The Taoism Grandmaster).
Alan Yu finished filming his scenes back in June while Ju Jingyi just wrapped in the past couple days. It seems like the leading ladies are almost always the last ones standing though I supposed it makes sense with Ju Jingyi playing the titular white snake.
