Legend of Chusen

2016 c-drama Legend of Chusen



Based on a novel called Zhu Xian written by Xiao Ding, the Legend of Chusen 诛仙青云志 or Noble Aspirations is a big-budget fantasy wuxia starring Li Yi Feng (Sword of Legends), Zanilia Zhao Li Ying (Legend of Zu), Yang Zi, TF Boys, etc. and it premieres on July 2016

All the excitement surrounding the drama is largely due to casting where names like Angelababy where thrown into the pot until it secured its leads in Li Yi Feng and Zanilia Zhao Li Ying, two of the most sought after stars today. 

The genre as a whole is getting a lot of love these days that even c-pop idol boyband TF Boys is appearing in the series, no doubt to cater to younger fans.

Legend of Chusen is about Zhang Xiao Fan, a young man with mediocre skills made up by an abundance in determination to become a martial arts hero of the Qing Yun Sect. 

Li Yi Feng will once again play a character that has an alternate persona, Sword of Legends much? Frankly, Li Yi Feng's character looks and feels like a reboot of himself as Bai Li Tu Su, which is not a bad thing considering the former's success but redundant nonetheless.

On the other hand, Zanilia Zhao Li Ying is getting a lot of flak for not fitting the bill as the character Bi Yao. I find the backlash unexpected given that she is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful faces in the Chinese entertainment but her first stills with the bangs pretty much says it all.

No wonder people are making comparisons to cosplayer Qiu Xiao Chen and some netizens even took it upon themselves to photoshop their own version of Zhao Li Ying as Bi Yao, the way that it should be. At least the production team seems to be listening since the recent batch of promotional stills have improved by leaps and bounds such that everyone looks great.

  2. haha yep thought it was interesting that the non official stills looked really good. Didn't know it is for a video game? I thought it was just a random person who photoshopped the pic that is now making the rounds on the internet.

  6. I think Zhao Li Ying fits the role perfectly. I can see the resemblance to Qing xue that she played previously. They both love with their whole hearts both are delicate and have disapproving grand/parents
