Considering that Dylan Wang was recently spotted on the set of Ever Night 2 将夜2, it was only a matter of time before they made it official. He will be joining the show as the main protagonist, replacing Arthur Chen who previously stated that he wouldn’t be returning for the sequel.
The look and feel of the series is much like season 1 with the same old umbrella, the same leading lady played by Song Yiren, the same director Yang Yang (not the actor) and producer Wang Yuren.
Despite having a rookie actor in the lead, season 1 turned out to be a magical journey on a grand scale that hit all the right spots for fantasy buffs. There’s always a big risk that comes with a major casting change and a lot of pressure falling on the shoulders of the new guy. The production team is unanimous in saying that Meteor Garden star Dylan Wang has what it takes to play the role of Ning Que. It is Dylan’s first period drama and second drama in his career. Now that he’s in costume, what do you think?
Season 2 is expected to continue the story after the great battle as Ning Que returns to Tang Cheng.
