Well, things are looking up on the Zhou Dongyu and Xu Kai collaboration front as finally seeing their brand new pairing on screen clearly isn’t too far off. Ancient Love Poetry 千古玦尘’s production team has just announced today that filming for the project has finally wrapped.
When the pairing between the two was first announced a few months ago, I know a lot of people were surprised. Apart from it being quite unexpected, I guess many of us never quite imagined seeing Zhou Dongyu all done up in pretty period clothes and long long hair. Quite silly really since Zhou Dongyu is an award winning actress right? Sooner or later we’re bound to see her in anything but her usual short styles!
Anyway, what do you guys think about her look as the goddess Shang Gu in her very first xianxia? I say she looks equally right at home in period gear as she does in her pixie cut and gritty look on Better Days which she incidentally won Best Actress for at the Hundred Flowers Awards last month. Xu Kai on the other hand looks resplendent as usual in his long period robe and wig as Bai Jue. Not that I expected any differently since he’s already proven he’s a dab hand in the xianxia genre. As for the visuals of them together, they look really good all paired up and I can’t wait to see some more!
