Considering how much Luhan‘s name has been thrown into the ring as the perfect person to play Xie Lian for the live adaptation of Heaven Official’s Blessing (Tian Guan Ci Fu) 天官赐福 , don’t you find it quite interesting that the singer-actor has also been tapped to sing the main theme song for the donghua’s second season?
Luhan’s brand new song is entitled Lian Cheng Ci 怜城辞 and incidentally, it’s the very same “Lian” as the character he’s being considered a top contender for. Granted, I might be reading a wee bit too much into things but how mind-blowing would it be if this was one of those “connect the dots” kinda situation hey? After all there’s enough fan made videos out there to see that Luhan’s visual is definitely a suitable match. Then there’s also the visuals his Chen Chang Sheng presented in Fighter of the Destiny 择天记 all kitted out in similar white robes Xie Lian would totally wear which had many fans convinced. Coupled with the recognition he received for his acting in Cross Wire 穿越火线 and Sisyphus 在劫难逃 fans certainly think the chances of him nabbing the role are high.
In any case, while casting for the drama is currently up in the air, there have been rumours going around that an official announcement is imminent since a February kick off is being expected. But until that actually happens, have a listen at Luhan’s new MV for the animated series of Heaven Official’s Blessing in the meantime.
This song sucks compared to the actual song used in the donghua. Generic and devoid of any emotion.
This song is sooooo good!!! You just know the second season is gonna be so sad !
Nothing memorable about this one. I didn’t like donghua’s ost, and was hoping for this but it’s still meh.
I’m not a fan of his acting so hope he doesn’t get cast. XL is a very nuanced character and I just don’t think Luhan could do his character justice. I could be proven wrong though. But I hope the casting is based on skill rather than just looks.
