Former child actress Jiang Yi Yi headlines Nezha as the deity himself

Yes, you read right, the former child actress is gender swapping to play a male character. Jiang Yi Yi is no stranger to the limelight having played the younger versions of.. well, a lot of leading ladies. At the age of sixteen, she's certainly ready to take on the leading role as a young lady, but ups the ante to play Nezha, a powerful hero in Chinese mythology

Many adaptations throughout the years have interpreted the character in different ways turning him into a hero, a villain, a child and now, a lady (that's technically still a man). Nezha Xiang Yao Ji 哪咤降妖记 is a new drama that has been filming in Xiang Shan for over a month, and it has recently dropped stills of Jiang Yi Yi looking beautifully handsome.

Dai Chao, Wu Jia Yi, Wei Wei also join the cast, but I think the current scene stealers have to be A Lalei and Li Yi Hang from the popular Chinese variety show Where Are You Going, Dad? The two kiddies have won over audiences with their cuteness, and they're only five and six years old. From the stills, it looks like they'll attending deity school to learn the art of cultivation.
