Sheng Yi Lun and Olivia Wang confirmed for the fantasy epic Swire God

Swire God Sheng Yi Lun


For someone who has had an ugly fallout with his management company, Sheng Yi Lun (Oh My General) seems to be doing well career-wise. I'm happy for him that he's getting all these lead roles but at the same time, I have yet to warm up to any of the cold and distant personas that he's so accustomed to playing because I always find myself rooting for the other guy while finding Sheng Yi Lun, well, distant.   

Swire God 太古神王 is a Chinese drama adapted from a novel by Jing Wu Hen 淨無痕 and it looks like the main protagonist Qin Wen Tian will be cut from the same cloth in the sense that he is a man in his twenties, cold and handsome. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I can name so many such characters that are impossible to resist, so it's really up to the actor to bring the character to life. Update: On the upside, Olivia Wang (Ode to Joy) has been confirmed as the female lead. 

What's interesting is that an article shared on the show's official weibo account calls Swire God a combination of the fight for the throne from A Song of Ice and Fire and the story of youth and growth from Harry Potter. Can this be true?

  1. Don't understand how he is getting any roles at all. He can't act at all.

  2. LOL! Well, I guess you have to be diplomatic as the site runner when you report news but I don't!

    I really like Olivia Wang too. She deserves a better. She will act circles around him like all his co-stars.
