The Legend of White Snake begins filming with Alan Yu Menglong

Alan Yu Menglong Legend of White Snake
What was a rumor yesterday has been confirmed today as Alan Yu (The Fated General) attends the opening ceremony in Wuxi, China for his upcoming drama The Legend of White Snake 新白娘子传奇. I think this counts as the big reveal for the mystery posters from two years ago though I'm a little confused as to whose pictures were used in the past (was it really them?).

There are a few reasons to be excited about this. For one, Alan Yu finally takes the lead! He's been a supporting character in every costume drama that he's starred in that it'll be nice to see him stepping into leading roles for a change. 

He also reunites with Ju Jing Yi (Legend of Yun Xi) who played his love interest in Xuan Yuan Sword: Legend of the Han Clouds. They really didn't get enough screentime then (you'll know why when you watch it), so it'll be cute to see their couple pairing getting another chance. I guess the biggest downside is that there are already two adaptations of the same story that have yet to air - The Destiny of White Snake and Legend of the White Snake. Which one will you be watching?

  2. it is like they did not have any idea to make a new story with different story line...keep publish something the same...because the story about white snake are remake with so many times..it is weird they produce drama with the same story line...I know maybe the script,the cast and the acting style are different...but the story is the same because the story still about white snake...how many time to remake this..please come with new idea with the genius and real story line rather than fantasy

  3. The Yang Zi adaptation looks interesting because of the xianxia elements (and the fact that the two leads are a real life couple) but I reaaaaaaaaally like both JJY and Alan Yu, much less the two of them together on one screen, so I have to give this one a chance even if the story's 'meh' for me.

    They're both such pretty people!
