Wang Churan Top Bills New Historical Opposite Li Hongyi

New Youku series “Feng Ying Ran Mei Xiang 烽影燃梅香,” which quietly started filming in January 2024, has finally announced its cast. This marks Wang Churan’s first time top billing a heroine-centric drama, and she’ll be taking on the challenge of playing two characters as Mei Jiu and An Jiu. The historical romance is adapted from the novel “Records of a Fake Killer of the Song Dynasty” (伪宋杀手日志), written by author Xiu Tang (袖唐) who also penned “Miss Truth.

The drama stars Wang Churan and Li Hongyi in the leading roles, supported by actors Yan An, Chen Yuxian, Guo Cheng, and Bian Cheng. Special appearances include Hu Yixuan, Zuo Ye, Dong Xuan, Jiang Yiyan, Xu Zhengxi, Hanikezi, and Li Wenhan, with Zhang Xiaocheng, Ai Mi, Zhang Lei and Flora Dai Yanni as guest stars.

Wang Churan faced countless bashers last year after being shoved into the spotlight with “Fireworks of My Heart.” Moving past it, the 25-year-old actress has continued to land back-to-back projects. There was some contention on who will get top-billing since Li Hongyi is also coming off the highly-rated The Blood of Youth. Regardless, there is much anticipation for their first collaboration. It’s also interesting to see Xu Zhengxi involved again; as it looks like he has a number of completed projects lined up even after he’s “retired.”

Feng Ying Ran Mei Xiang centers around a heroine who becomes a female agent for the royal family and meets a young general along the way. So far, we only have a conceptual poster, but hopefully, new promotional materials will be releseased soon so we can see the cast in their costumes.
