On January 31, cast members of Sword of Legends 2 古剑奇谭II appeared to an expectant crowd inside one of the palace locations of Xiang Shan Studio in full costume. Everyone's fervent smiles seem to indicate a successful event yet pressure is building to see whether the sequel can even live up to the original Sword of Legends starring Li Yi Feng (Legend of Chusen) and Yang Mi (Three Lives Three Worlds).
Many fans are skeptical and frankly, so am I because I have yet to find the new cast appealing whereas the old cast, which may not have been perfect was certainly oozing with charisma.
Fu Xin Bo (The Journey) takes the leading role opposite Ying Er (Decoded). Having been around for a while, he had his start on Jia You! Hao Nan Er alongside Li Yi Feng though he has yet to find the next big thing to propel his career forward. Will Sword of Legends be the answer? We can hope.
