Omg, you won’t believe this, but I was rewatching a Novoland: Eagle Flag 九州缥缈录 trailer today and wishing for it to air. The next thing I know, the show is pulling out a surprise premiere! News first broke on the internet, but only got confirmed when streaming sites Tencent and Youku subsequently made their announcements this afternoon and released posters of Liu Haoran, Lareina Song and Chen Ruoxuan.
I’m still traumatized by how suddenly Eagle Flag was pulled 20 minutes before it was supposed to air last month. With no concrete reason, many thought that it was due to censorship and also speculated that the title Eagle Flag would have to go. Whatever the reason is, it seems that the title is intact.
Even though it’s not ideal, I could get used to these surprise premieres. Last month, The Longest Day in Chang’An released episodes even before anyone found out. At least with this, we have a few hours heads up. Novoland: Eagle Flag is expected to air July 16 at 10pm on Zhejiang TV, Tencent and Youku.
