“In a world that’s overexposed, the coolest thing you can be is a mystery.”
Upcoming fantasy drama Mirror Twin Cities 镜·双城 based on a novel by Cang Yue seems to take this saying to heart as it is indeed wrapped in mystery. The series has reportedly began filming in Sichuan, however, the cast has yet to be announced with one measly poster released last November to curb the appetite of the viewing public.
But of course, every secret has a way of coming out with Li Yifeng and Yang Zi’s names floating around. If you are a big fan of costume dramas then there’s a fat chance you’ve seen Li Yifeng’s works already. The singer-actor secured his fame by playing the hero in the highly successful Swords of Legends five years ago.
Not only that, should the casting rumors turn out to be true, it will be a mini-reunion from Legend of Chusen where Li Yifeng played the main protagonist Zhang Xiaofan and Yang Zi played the second lead Lu Xueqi.
Mirror Twin Cities author Cang Yue also wrote Listening Snow Tower. This time, the story revolves around a Miao ethnic girl who is pure and bubbly. The male lead is a complicated character with a light and dark side. It sounds like the kind of genre that would be a walk in the park for both.
But please, let’s not get our hopes up because as of this time of writing, there has been no official announcement except for the pictures leaked in separate occasions that show Li Yifeng and Yang Zi going for a costume fitting for ‘something’.
