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.
