If you’ve seen Monster Killer, then this news will certainly tickle your fancy as its author Ni Luo is having another one of her books adapted into a drama. Twelve Legends 十二谭 held its booting ceremony yesterday, October 21. It’s a collaboration between Youku and Tangren Media and tells the story of a main protagonist with powers and a mission to fulfill. Of course, who can forget about the romantic angle that spans more than a thousand years.
Ten Years Late star Guli Nazha will play the main heroine, and I’m pumped up to see her in the Republican era. Acting alongside her is Jasper Liu whom I loved in Before We Get Married. Jasper had such sizzling chemistry with Puff Guo that I’d be curious to see how his pairing with Nazha turns out.
While the cast is made up of up and comers, I found quite a few familiar faces like Gao Hanyu who gave life to the Master Tactician in The King’s Avatar live action and the adorable Zhou Junwei from Put Your Head on My Shoulder. There will also be a special appearance by X-NINE’s main rapper / titular emperor in Oh My Emperor, Jason Koo Jiacheng.
Also in the cast are Chen Yusi and Yang Zhiying while Ancy Deng Enxi, Chen Zheyuan, Tu Nan and Zhang Lei will be making a cameo.
