Live-action drama Legend of Ravaging Dynasties is cloaked in mystery

With the sequel to the movie L.O.R.D. coming in July, not many know of an iQiYi drama based on the same Guo Jingming 郭敬明 novel that may also be due for a summer release, though it's probably also owed to everything being very hush hush about the production. 

Live Action L.O.R.D. Legend of the Ravaging Dynasties
The drama adaptation of Legend of Ravaging Dynasties 爵迹临界天下 has completed four months of filming to wrap since August of last year. Posters and a teaser trailer have been released, neither of which reveal much about the identity of its ensemble of dukes and disciples. Joe Cheng (Partners), Zhang Mingen (Tientsin Mystic), Maggie Huang (In Youth), Ji Chen and Xiong Nai Jin (Legend of Chusen) are currently listed as the cast. 

My guess is that Joe Cheng is Duke Seven, Zhang Mingen is his disciple and Maggie Huang is Lian Quan aka the titular heroine popularized by Fan Bingbing. Zhang Mingen seems like a sure bet for Qi Ling and I could have sworn that the silver-haired guy in the trailer is Joe Cheng which leaves Maggie Huang. Given her streak for villainous roles, she could easily play Shen Yin which was portrayed by Yang Mi in the movie.

  1. Every source is saying Huang Mengying is playing Shen Yin, the female lead for this drama. Which is interesting because I can barely remember Shen Yin having any screentime in the movie other than her little loveline with Ni Hong.

    1. woah so it's going to be different from the movie? Do you happen to know who's the lead in the novel? I am totally clueless when it comes to the books:) Either way, as long as she's the lead, am quite happy with that.

    2. oh that be interesting if she play SY and the drama can go deeper into her story...from the book I though it's SY who's lead but then in movie they shift the focus to more FBB character cause she supposely be the goodside. Vs SY is more in dark side with her own agenda and such but you don't really know cause her chanracter is so mysterious...her love interest with Ni Hong is somewhat complicate but I so would ship them, they are the last corroders NH has a primitive protectiveness and attachment to her...and her twin let's not forget about :)

    1. It looks legit but so blurry:) It still seems like Joe Cheng's Yin Chen, Zhang Mingen's Qi Ling and Maggie Huang's Shen Yin not Lian Quan as I guessed at first.
