Look who’s back with a new drama to boot!
A year after appearing in The Legend of Yunxi together, actors Ju Jingyi and Zhang Zhehan will be reuniting once again to co-star in a new historical romance entitled The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion 如意芳霏 which is already in the works! Now The Legend of Yunxi may not have had the ending to satisfy everyone, but I guess we can all do with another helping of Ju Jingyi and Zhang Zhehan. After all, their on-screen chemistry as Han Yunxi and Long Feiye was super adorable to watch.
Adapted from the novel of author Xiao Jiaren, The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion tells the story of Fu Rong, a woman who’s determined to decide her own destiny through self-reliance. In order to escape an arranged marriage, she runs away to the capital where she meets Xu Jin. Ju Jingyi previously played a strong and gutsy female in TLY so I’m glad she gets to play another plucky and spirited woman in this new drama. In contrast, are we going to get another dose of the aloof and “holier than thou” Zhang Zhehan? Y’all will just have to wait and see when The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion airs.
Anyway, the drama recently held its boot ceremony to ring in the start of filming. Ju Jingyi appears in period garb whilst co-star Zhang Zhehan is dressed entirely in an all black very modern ensemble as it looks like he hasn’t changed to costume yet. That aside, the pair appear to be in very good spirits, joking and laughing with each other so I guess they’re both pretty chill with working together again especially since this is their second time already.
