Oh no, I’m just the bearer of bad news this week. After Tientsin Mystic 2 changed its lead, we get another change in cast now that Arthur Chen Feiyu confirms the rumors that he won’t be returning for season 2 of Ever Night 将夜. It doesn’t seem like the best timing to break the news as the drama is still airing, but maybe it’s best to be up front about it.
It was sweet that Arthur Chen uploaded photos with Director Yang Yang who played a huge part in casting him in his very first drama. He writes, “Thank you to each and every one of the Ever Night cast and crew for the 200 days of companionship. Thank you to Director Yang Yang for giving me the opportunity two years ago to enter Ning Que’s world and to grow together with this stubborn young man. To me, you are like a strict mother, but also a close friend. Today’s Ning Que can shine brightly on screen because of your meticulous guidance, turning a bashful kid like me into a young man. Thank you to everyone who has liked Ever Night. 宁缺毋滥 (Chinese idiom)”
Ever Night has been quite well received along with its rookie lead. It’s unfortunate to know that the main actor won’t be able to reprise his role due to scheduling conflict. Arthur Chen is currently filming another fantasy drama called Legend of Awakening.
Sighh… I’m so sad right now!
^x 1,000! Sad all around.
I think everything have heard the rumor that Dylan Wang will replace him in the second season. I think this rumor is pretty solid considering Dylan said in the interview that his next project would be historical.
It'd weird if he played Ning Que because I'm pretty sure second season is direct continuation to the season 1's story with the same set of characters. It's not a spin off.
I didnt watch Meteor Garden so I dont know what to expect but hopefully he can bring the same charm to Ning Que the way Feiyu did.
Now that I think, it's amazing that Eternal Love cast can reprise their role until Season 3 (which is confirmed already). Might be becaude the cast are not too popular and have no other better work offer hence no schedule conflict. It's so hard to get popular cast or big name cast to return for second season. Feiyu is relatively new but he's the son of famous director Chen Kaige, naturally he'll get many other work opportunities.
Sad news as I'm mainly watching because of Arthur Chen. Hope Legend of Awakening will be airing somewhere I can watch!
Chen Feiyu was never the reason I watch Ever Night. First it was the anticipation following the trailer, then the good word of mouth, then of course the drama itself, which delivers so far! But I've grown attached to the cast, particularly him, Song Yiren and some of the supporting cast. So it's a sad news for me. It will feel bittersweet to complete the series, and it won't feel the same without him in Season 2.
I think it's not just because he is a son of a famous director, but people have grown to love him too. He has a lot of potential. His acting is also acceptable, for someone his age, he is very handsome, and his arrogance and fresh casual/relax vibe are likeable. He also looked great in fighting scenes He delivers his movements smoothly with enough force, so it looked real.
Sooo noob iam watching only because of Arthur Chen and iam not going to watch season 2 so sad
Agree with lenje above. I came to really like CF's NQ and his chemistry with the cast. I may give season 2 a chance but prays that it's not Dylan Wang – I just can't see him as NQ. If he is confirmed as NQ, I may just stick to the novels. Let's hope CF can come back for season 3.
oh you are definitely wrong i am 100% sure you are not watchinh the dear inn 2 which was a reality show he really fits the role that is why there is no audition for the lead the director chose Dylan Wang and no other than because he has his own original charisma. don't judge bol by its cover. you ain't nothing but to throw the trashes you've been loved out of the window.
Oh, I'm so hoping that CF comes back for season 3 🙁
So sad that Arthur Chen not to return to play as a lead role in season 2.. actually, they are gud match airen song and him to play as a lead role..but we are not expected that they are not continues their partners at the season 2 filming of evernight..🙄😟..about Dylan Wang..he is a good actor for acting also..he is my idol too like Arthur Chen..but honesty,, I still like airen song And Arthur Chen as leading partner in evernight season 2..😍😍😍..but now we have no choice..maybe Arthur Chen, have a reason Why….
That's sad as I just started watching yesterday after all the praise this drama has received. Loving the drama so far and I'm enjoying Arthur's performance but I guess I will try not to get too attached to the actor now.
Oh my god, -'Ever Night'- all sub language ? ! ? here : streamhdcinema.blogspot.com
I am a fan of dylan wang. I actually watch evernight 1 thinking he was the title role but realized he will be in second sequel instead. I continued to watch because i liked the plot of the story and chen feyu kinda grew into me. I became a fan too. I started Watching evernight 2 of course with dylan wang. I knew he’ll do a great job ( he did well with fight scenes as well as drama scenes in “Miss dragon king”. He is also as tall as cf. It feel weird at first, especially some of the original characters i alao loved have been replaced with new faces like the tang king and wife and daughter, etc. I like that brothers 1 and 2 of tang academy are involved in fights more now. I just hope they can dub conversations in english than just sub titles, lol. I am always fascinated witht his kind of fantasy themed movies. It kinda takes me to their historic culture too. Love the head dresses ponytails and of course the elaborate beautiful vibrant colors and ornaments on their robes /costumes. To all asian movie producers, writers and stars…keep making movies and more power!
Hope he takes back the role in season 3 (if there is one)
I really don't mind the cast change since I've watched Meteor Garden, but yea, I just grow attached to the original cast in any show.
I watched Meteor Garden and i am really not sure for this young actor. I feel for him actually as Arthur has made Ning Que his own and the chemistry between the 2 leads is so charming. Wait abd see and hope for the best.
Ever night is not the same without Arthur. I am so sad…☹☹☹
Arthur Chen blew my mind!! His NQ is arrogant, confident, lovable… For the first time i m liking this kind of hero. N i have watched a lot of movies n dramas.
Its a good news and at the same time its a sad news for me.
Good news he will have a new project but the sad part he must leave the other one.
But I am congrats and good luck for the upcoming season two.
It is always sad when a lead is changed, no matter the reason, however Aurther Chen made the comment about his director that I think will ensure the continuity of the character "Ning Que". Director Yang Yang gave meticulous guidance to him on the characters role, for which he was very grateful. I can only hope and trust in her to maintain the Characters completeness in the series 2, even though we will have someone different. It is always good to sit back and watch a show, apllaud the actors and easily forget who and how they are motivated and driven.
Some shows lose this drive from their Directors and eventually we can see the actors struggle to keep it alive. A good show is a two part symbiotic process, Great Director and a receptive Actor or Actors. Lets just wait and see, give it a chance and not be dooming season 2 before it has even started.
I look forward to it and will support it as much as I can.
I miss Arthur already.
I haven't seen Ever Night yet, but will be watching because of Dylan Wang. 100% sure he can surpass the first actor. No hate. It's my own opinion after knowing the characteristic of Ning Que. Really fit to Dylan. Saw bts of his action scene, and it's really highly anticipated. Will watch Ever Night for Arthur Chen, I'm sure he's also great in portraying the role. 🙂

I am very sad ??? we want Arthur Chen… I invest my quality time watching in season 1 i am concerned the emotional attachment and chemistry of the main cast Arthur Chen it won't be the same. Dylan is a good actor but in this role ever night 2 much better if Arthur Chen continue to be the main cast so that the audience won't dissapointed and give high rating. we are very satisfied Arthur Chen as Ningque the main cast of season 1… Now as a satisfied audience of ever night season 1, may we request the director and staff of ever night please don't replace ArthAr Chen and please don't broke our ?. We want Arthur Chen as Ningque for ever night 2.
Rando J Balauro
You say that because you did not watch the season 1. How about us the satisfied audience in season 1? We are broken hearted now. And even you did not watch the season 1 still got high rating. Look at viki. This drama got high rating. That why you don't need to watch it because the rating is high already. I am very concerned the season 2 because many audience like me very dissapointed for the replacement of the main lead Actor Arthur Chen. I hope the Director and staff of Ever Night consider the emotional and chemistry attached to the audience and the main cast Arthur Chen. We have high expectations for season 2 Please don't replace the main cast.
Rando J Balauro
Can we file a petition? So sad they replace arthur chen… I hope they give 2nd thoughts. Season 1 got high rating. I don't know I am very sad ?
Rando J Balauro
We can wait the ever night 2 when Arthur Chen available for his schedule. Please make proper cooperation to the management of Arthur Chen and I hope they consider the feeling of the sarisatis audience in Ever Night season 1
I think I am in the minority as I think Arthur Chen is not a good actor. He makes the weirdest facial expressions and half the time I'm not sure what emotion he is trying to convey. Maybe in a few years he will improve but right now he is very green. I just wish the director casted someone who has actually been in a drama before. I have only seen Dylan in Meteor Garden but I think he did a good job in that so I think he will improve on the roll of Ning Que in season 2.
Rando J Balauro
Not agree with you. First reason season 1 got high rating. 2nd many satisfied viewer wanted Arthur Chen back. I watched medior garden 2018 version ep1 and ep2 only because I don't like Dylan Wang so thin.
From what I understand, the high ratings wasn't really because of Arthur, but because the drama in general is good. Most comments I've seen around the web is Arthur Chen was only ok as Ning Que. High ratings do not mean the actors are necessarily good. Look at the Korean drama Boys Over Flowers. That got high ratings but the main actress was not good (she was universally disliked). Just because something got high ratings doesn't mean it was because of an actor. But I am happy you did like Arthur Chen and it probably made the drama much more enjoyable for you.
Lol I rating Ever night high rate coz main lead actor, Ever Nigh it's not same if Arthur Chen changing, I watch Ever Night one of them coz the main actor is good actor
Rando J Balauro
I agree with you 🙂
I heard that the director is don't want arthAr chen back. I don't know the reason.
Rando J Balauro
Is this for real?
How about the metior garden the original one compared to the 2018 version who got high rating? Of course the original one right?
Enjoyable for him… In my opinion You are self centered I rate ever night 1 because of Arthur Chen.
I am watching the first instalment of Ever Night because Dylan is the lead for the 2nd instalment. I thought it was odd that the director was fine with changing the lead but when I saw Arthur's acting, I felt that Dylan would actually do a much better job.
Dylan was one of the reasons why Meteor Garden 2018 was refreshing. He had a lot of tearjerker scenes in Meteor Garden and he pulled them off really well. Arthur still has some ways to go. Dylan has a very strong charisma and Ning Que's character is utterly perfect for him. Not to mention, his action scenes look so good!
I cannot wait for the second instalment of Ever Night!
Isnt Arthur Chen going back to school after his second historical drama? If so, EN would have to be shelved for years to get to the next season then? No actor is that indispensable (esp that the leads are all still rookies)
Will there be a season 3 ? Anyone who knows please please tell 🙏
Ning Que and Dao Ming Si are different character, I saw Dylan photos as Ning Que he looks weak and thin, he needs to work a lot.
Just finished season1 of ever night, for sure Arthur Chen to some extent made me feel the real world, supported him through all battles like my very own, him with sang sang desplayed my entire spirit to keep watching the series, am really so disappointed for this news, it would have been a different actor but not him, just worried about how good season 2 will be ?????
It is the emotional scenes where Dylan will outshine Arthur. Frankly, towards the end of Evernight, Arthur's emotional scenes were horrendous. He just could not shed a tear. Yiren was heaps better. Evernight 2 is going to be an emotional rollercoaster and I believe that Dylan can bring that emotion to the screen.
Seriously, If you read chinese novels uploaded on the internet, Arthur Chen exactly portrays the characters from historical novels. Don't judge him just because he is a son of a director and an actress, but it surely did help him to develop into a very good actor or artist since his foundation is already solid from the beginning.
If it weren’t for AC’s strange envy/hate toward a certain other actor who has done nothing to him, I would say he’s not so bad. I previously heard that he was being replaced due to scheduling conflicts, but then I saw many people say behind the scenes other issues were going on. Of course it’s conjecture until there’s proof in this case with Ever night, but I also know that AC was involved with hating another actor for no reason other than apparent envy, & was even caught red handed & called out for trying to spread rumors. So I believe it could be the case that there were other issues if those things are true (some of them for sure are).
As for his acting, his emotional scenes in Ever Night were extremely lacking & I’m hoping Dylan will overcome those well based off the performance he gave in MG—he can do intensely emotional scenes if needed which I felt AC struggled with.
All d love I had have for ever night was simply bcus of arthuer Chen
I love watching Ever Night, the production values are terrific. I love Arthur Chen as Ning Que, he plays the character beautifully, his fight scenes are amazing, looks so real. All the actors are wonderful, as if they were born to do those roles. I'm sad that Arthur Chen won't be in Ever Night 2, but I'm looking forward to seeing how the new actor does. I'm a Dr. Who fan so you kinda learn how to handle lead character changes, especially if you really like the current doctor (David Tennant) at time and don't want them to leave. So I look forward to seeing Season 2, especially if the other characters are still in it.
I swear its gonna be crazy if cf didn’t come back for the season three
It is funny how LOTS of people commented Chen Feiyu’s lack of ’emotions’ in his acting, seems like LOTS of them truly do not understand Ever Night’s Ning Que. HAVE YOU READ THE FVCKING NOVEL?! Chen Feiyu PERFECTLY realizes the Ning Que we imagine. And the sad part is, season 2 is where Sang Sang and Ning Que’s romance solidify. She’s being sweet with a WRONG MAN, IT FEELS LIKE SHE’S CHEATING ON NING QUE. ? More likely watching your bestfriend kissing her boyfriend who had switched soul with another but everyone is fine of them kissing since they don’t know it wasnt the real him! DAMN IT. Frankly, I didn’t watch season 2 for that very reason. I know I ask too much, but they could have change everyone since the chemistry of the cast isn’t the same anymore anyway. Happy for Arthur’s continuous success, and happy for Dylan’s new projects. Still, if Chen Feiyu won’t be casted in season 3, I’ll stick with the novel forever.
For an instance, when a confirmed Meteor Garden 2 casted everyone except Dylan, would MG fans like it? LOL I bet they’ll run amok not just because of Dylan but because of the drama itself. How about The Untamed (more spin off, if ever) casting everyone except Xiao Zhan, will they sit still? HYPOCRITICAL!!!!
I didn’t read nor opened any news regarding this matter, was too heartbroken and was very upset. I remember how I cried back then tho. I still haven’t move on and I just have to say something as season 3 is confirmed but casting wasn’t published yet. If he won’t be Ning Que, then fine. I’ll just wait for Immortality’s Mo Ran then ?
Sad you think that way. Replacing the main role lead is a no no. Garbage ever night 2. I’m not watching.
Isirome Jackson tom
We need season 3 for ever night Ning que wake up that season please….
At first, I thought I could give season 2 a watch but I later realized without NQ, it was so boring. Let me wait for season 3 hopefully he will be back. Nevertheless, am not following it again
I dont like the face of the second actor I will not watch the season 2
Luís Henrique Andrade de Moura Barbosa
I don’t think is a good idea changing the main character actor.
I finished the ever night season 1 in this day, but looking at the Wang Dylan actuation in the few minutes of season 2 confirmed that this was the director worst idea to continue without Arthur.
1. Dylan can’t perform Ning Que perfectly and pass the emotion in the scene he is in ep 1 minute 7:26 and 8:20 8:25 the entire moment i can’t sense the felling that he is really sad about sang sang injure like the season 1 Ning Que.
2. The impression that the new actor pass to me is that he is more like performing a character that is just righteous, pure in the sense of being less naughty the opposite of Ning Que personality, Dylan faces pass the impression of a guy who never kill people for revenge or have a kill intent. He is more like a guy who have a good back ground and a good boy that never falling to devil actions unlike the character Ning Que. Arthur can perform this better, he in season 1 make the felling that Ning Que real fall in darkness and care about Sang Sang.
3. Dylan don’t pass the felling that he threat Sang Sang he is cruel like Fu Zi said in the minute 9:00 (ep 1 season 2) and he fail in expression sadness and guilty
4. The first Arthur work that I watched is Legend Awakening and he is perfect to interpret characters who have a sad past. For a better comparation Dylan is more like represent honest, integrity and righteous tendencies, Arthur Ning Que and Lu Ping, don’t mind about using tricks or honor, fame. The felling that Arthur give me is that he likes more these tendencies and maybe he is like that in real life. My point is i think Dylan is better at characters that have righteous tendencies and never fall in devil ways, he pass me the felling that he is the typical main character like luffy or other characters who is good and never make wrong things, but Arthur pass me the felling of a character that is called the “anti-hero” in occident or for me more like Nie Li.
Yes, i’m a normal person who just writing somethings and never showed to anyone, i like read things so i’m not a expert in acting skills this is just my opinion.
