Update 2019: Back then, drama and movies were seemingly being done in pairs with Three Lives and Three Worlds and Love O2OThe star-studded movie League of Gods was released in 2016 when a drama with the same storyline had also completed filming in 2015. Coming back to this post years later and it's finally airing!

I'm realizing a few things about the drama belatedly, like the fact that I hadn't yet discovered Deng Lun as this was way before his Ashes of Love fame. His name is now up there along with Wang Likun and Luo Jin in recent promotions for the drama though I'm not sure how big a role he actually plays as the fox demon who takes Da Ji's soul. 

I also thought that this was about Yang Jian's journey, but it seems to be more about Da Ji and her struggle with evil. It all sounds very intriguing to be honest since Da Ji is often portrayed as the villain. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but keeping precaution in case it falls among one of those overly tacky fantasy dramas that are just bad 😅. It takes over the slot for The Legends so you guys, this may be another one to watch?

Release Date: April 8, 2019 Hunan TV (two episodes every Monday to Thursday at 10pm). Starting May, it will air from Monday to Wednesday.
