Dilraba Dilmurat and Wu Lei’s live adaptation of the popular manhua series The Long Ballad 长歌行 made its surprise premier on March 31st. And although we all know Dilraba and Wu Lei’s characters will end up to be the couple viewers will be shipping and CP-ing, that clearly didn’t stop Netizens from cheekily christening Dilraba and co-star Zhao Lusi with quite a few CP names after the tearful scenes of the two cutting ties.
Dilraba Dilmurat and Zhao Lusi play princesses and cousins in the series. However, unlike her cousin, Dilraba’s character was forced to disguise herself as a man to avenge the death of her family.
Moving past the budding romance between Li Chang Ge and Wu Lei’s Ashina Sun which we all know is a given, the relationship between Chang Ge and Le Yan also adds a new layer of complexity that has drawn a lot of viewers in. And although the pair are as different as night and day when it comes to their personalities, witnessing the growth of their characters as fate (and circumstances) continue to test their relationship appears to be something viewers are also excited to see. So much so that they’ve even bestowed upon the unlikely pair their very own CP hashtags.
Ba巴 Si思 Guang光 Niang年, Di迪 Lu露”or even “Li丽 Lu露 Xiu修” which when translated to English spells Lelush after the popular Chuang 2021 Russian trainee … Take your pick amongst the potential appellations Netizens creatively came up with by mashing together Dilraba 迪丽热巴 and Zhao Lusi’s 赵露思 names. Whereas the scenes of Chang Ge with the daughter of the man responsible for the demise of her entire family in his ambition to be King were quite emotional ones, I guess everyone can all use some levity after the tension heavy scenes between the two cousins.
