What usually comes to mind whenever Legend of the White Snake 白娘子传奇 is mentioned are classics like the 1992 Taiwanese TV series starring Angie Chiu and Cecilia Yip and the 1993 Hong Kong movie Green Snake starring Joey Wang and Maggie Cheung.

Legend of Chusen has been raging lately and its stars are rising to fame along with it. Even though Yang Zi has only been in one costume drama so far, she is said to be the frontrunner for White Snake Green Snake, an upcoming Chinese drama to be produced by H&R Century Pictures.

Her potential leading man Ren Jia Lun is also a Chusen alumni who played the kind-hearted six tailed-fox. As for the green snake, there are talks that she might be played by Mao Xiao Tong (nope, not happening) who was brilliantly villainous in Princess Weiyoung. What do you think of the potential casting?
