Former EXO member Luhan (The Tomb Raider) will star in Fighter of the Destiny 择天记, a Chinese xianxia based on a novel by Mao Ni 猫腻 about a 14-year-old orphan who leaves his master to seek a cure for his ill-ridden physique that is not meant to live pass the age of 20. Thus begins the magical adventure of a lifetime.
The cast includes Luhan (The Great Wall), Gulnezer Bextiyar (Chinese Paladin 5) and Janice Wu (Love O2O) whose youthful aura fit the premise to a tee. Then I realize that Luhan is already 26, which I never would have guessed because he looks super duper young.
On the other hand, Gulnezer Bextiyar is literally everywhere much to the dismay of some netizens who complain that her acting does not justify the exposure that she has been getting. I'm not one of those haters but if I had a dollar for every time I write a new drama with her name attached to it and there're a lot, I'd be rich.
