Elvis Han and Sebrina Chen Yao are reuniting for the third time for a new season of Monster Killer 无心法师 produced by Tangren Media. Familiar faces from previous seasons attended the booting ceremony held in Hengdian World Studios. Considering that the story is about an undying man who fights monsters, I bet they can carry the same concept for years to come though a part of me remains fiercely loyal of the original. I never quite enjoyed season 2 in the same way and yes, I do miss Gina Jin.
Nevertheless, there’s no question that Elvis Han is born to play Wu Xin, so seeing him returning to play the character in the past four years is a nostalgic callback. This time, the story moves away from the Republican era and into the Tang Dynasty.
Chen Yao has been a formidable match since playing Yue Qiluo. She’s been changing shapes in the drama to become Xiao Dingmao in season 2, and I’m curious to see what season 3 has in store for the versatile actress. As it takes place even further into the past, it will explore another layer of relationship between the two. It’ll be interesting to see everyone in Tang dynasty costume. Her hair though, it’s slightly worrisome.
