A Chinese Odyssey: Love You A Million Years 大话西游之爱你一万年 releases its first stills of Huang Zi Tao as the Monkey King. It apparently takes four hours just to complete the full hair and makeup and and I have to say that it seems worth the effort as the result is the most legit-looking Monkey King I have ever seen. I can barely recognize Z Tao from the pictures but it's him alright.
The c-drama has its fair share of naysayers for trying to remake a classic using a bunch of newcomers. I agree to some extent but I may also be one of the few who find that Z Tao's unmistakable air of confidence actually fits the role. Not to mention his bubbly personality that can never sit still and an iron rod for a weapon? That's practically a signature of his since his EXO days.
