The Lost Tomb 2 announces Neo Hou and Cheng Yi, cast begins filming

The Lost Tomb 2 announces Neo Hou, Cheng Yi
After years of waiting, I've started to ignore rumors surrounding The Lost Tomb 盗墓笔记第二季 sequel, but it's for real this time as the drama finds its leads in Neo Hou Minghao (The Monkey King 3) and Cheng Yi (The Legend of Chusen). So it's not the dream team that people were expecting since neither Li Yi Feng nor Yang Yang return to reprise their roles. It also looks like Qin Jun Jie who was initially thought to be a main character has passed from the drama altogether.

I usually advocate the return of the original cast, but I'm quite happy with the new ensemble. Neo Hou who plays Wu Xie seriously reminds me of a younger Li Yi Feng. Cheng Yi plays Zhang Qiling and although he doesn't look like Yang Yang to me, I had to take a second glance when I thought that it was Yang Yang in the pic (it isn't, right?)!

The Lost Tomb sequel begins filming
The show has dropped opening ceremony pictures today and unveiled more names to include Li Man, Zhang Bo Yu, Yao Lu, Jin Shi Jie and Shu Yao Xuan. I don't understand why there are already stills, maybe they started filming much earlier.

  1. Is Lost Tomb a good watch? I remember watching the first episode and lost interest because I don’t really understand what’s happening, so I dropped it right away. Should I give it another try?

    1. Lost tomb is a so-so drama for me but it really depends on your personal preference. If you are interested in mystery and adventure type of drama,I think it is worth a shot to watch it

    2. It's not really a drama I recommend but maybe because it's not my fave genre. That said, I drop a lot of dramas after starting but managed to watch this till the end, and I like the cast of eye candies, so like the commenter above, it depends?:)

  3. It's no surprise there are already stills as Hou Ming Hao has been preparing for the role for about a month now, the first news/rumours appeared on March 18th that he was casted, and that was when he had his hair dyed for a new role.
    What I don't understand is why you refer to "Monkey King 3" which hasn't been released yet (so obviously nobody can assiociate him with that production at this moment...)
    And by the way, in Neo's name "Ming Hao" is written always separately (not "Minghao" like you wrote it)- this is the only form you will find in all official materials issued by Neo's agency/management
