The King’s Avatar 全职高手 has wrapped filming last September and posted some behind-the-scenes photos. It’s all in black and white maybe because they don’t want to give anything away. In contrast, the full-blown poster complete with anime-like elements look very exciting and fun. I’m glad that Yang Yang is finally back in a gaming drama. He starred in Love O2O before and gained a lot of popularity because of it, so I’m kind of expecting a lot from him in this one.
I’ve seen the anime version of The King’s Avatar and the fighting scenes were the best parts. The story overall was captivating so I know that this is a story worth my time. It revolves around Xiu/Ye Qiu (Yang Yang) who ranked as a professional top player but got removed from his profession after 10 years of playing “Glory.” He eventually sets up a new account and starts over. Action is undeniably a big part of this which is why the cast starring Yang Yang, Maggie Jiang Shuying and Leon Lai Yi among others are in motion capture suits.
