Yes guys, it’s true! With no warning whatsoever, The Wolf 狼殿下 was trending on Weibo hot search after it suddenly announced that it was premiering today, Nov. 19.
The 49-episode drama is now available on Chinese video platforms Tencent, iQIYI and Youku with two episodes released every Thursday to Saturday. What’s more, all episodes were released immediately for VIP subscribers!
The Wolf starring Darren Wang Talu and Li Qin was shot from April to September in 2017, so it’s been three long years! Although Xiao Zhan plays a supporting role with his character Ji Chong reportedly only appearing from episode 11, the fact that this drama can premiere can finally quash the rumors that his past works are being blacklisted following the 227 incident.
Also in the cast are Xin Zhilei, Yao Yao, Ding Yongdai and Lin Youwei. Okay, the posters seem a little tacky perhaps due to this being an older drama, but I am off to watch this because it’s been a long time coming!
