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!
Yay!!!! Xiao Zhan is finally back. Yahoo! I couldn’t believe it when I saw it on YouTube earlier. I love this surprise! Will watch it when I get home today. 🙂
OMG! Finally! I thought this day would never come. I’m totally going to watch it.
I was so excited that I am binging this series and am half way done. This is a Li Qin’s drama. The plot mostly surrounds around her character. Darren is such a miscast in here. Instead the cool and aloof Bo Wang, we get someone who is too stiff, awkward, and doesn’t match historical period garb. Given that this was Xiao Zhan’s first drama filmed, he was not too bad. I enjoyed his dialogues with Ma Zhai Xing. This series reminds me of idol series, lots of cheese and plenty of shipping moments. Overall, an okay series thus far. Nothing spectacular and hasn’t bored me yet.
Thanksfor the review so far. I’m going to start watching the 2 episodes tonight.
I agree. Darren looks awkward in history garb..
The drama pacing is good and midway done as well but what annoys me is the constant bipolar thing Darren’s character does to Li Qin’s. Like they go I love you then I don’t love you. Honestly even tho Xiao Zhan isn’t the main guy, he definitely steals the show and his fans will be delighted with his ending. Personally he turned me into a fan from this series.
Enjoyed the Chinese drama The Wolf It is 49 hours of viewing a beautiful actress and is always fun. To keep it interesting Sweet Li is: stabbed. Shot with an arrow. Tossed to the ground. Insulted. Locked up
Married to two different men. Led an army in battle. Always fun to watch
But 49 hours? I think the same soldier actors must have been killed 20 times! Clashing armies look alike.
Q: married couples. Are together for years and…where are the cute little Wolf Babies?”
Could have been great as a 12 hour mini-drama. Just cut out Sweet Li staring into the eyes of her two handsome husbands..
Nice hip-hop music. The romantic piano music is Okay but could be a little more creative.
He appears from Ep 11, omg, only 4 has been released and sub so far. OK, I may have got all the episode but I will need to just look at their actions to understand the situation.
Haha, life is hard.
It is interesting that the whole drama is released to VIP. its like all of a sudden they cannot wait to push it out.
Xiao Zhan is the only reason I’m even watching this series. Anxiously awaiting his scenes/episodes.
This is the only reason for me too. we have to wait until Ep 11.
I watch this drama coz waiting for xz…… He hasn’t appears yet….. But it’s ok I can wait for him
Are all episodes available in the US?
Youtube has been releasing the episodes but they haven’t all been released yet. But if you watch on duboku all the episodes are out
I could only watch it till ep6, I was watching it in the very hope for a glimpse of Xiao Zhan??
You can watch all 49 episodes for free here (link below). I’m watching it from USA. I’m on ep #9 right now. I think Xiao Zhan starts at the end of ep #10. That was what I heard people said. Thanks Jimin for the info.
