The King's Avatar unveils roster of players that include leading lady Lai Yumeng

The King's Avatar 全职高手 finds its leading lady in actress Lai Yumeng (The King of Blaze) who plays the role of Su Mucheng. Her introduction finally comes after some initial casting change as she joins as one of the players in the drama's expansive world of esports. It does seem that she's not getting as much exposure as perhaps Maggie Jiang who is the bigger star of the two, so I wonder whether there will be any change to the storyline. 

The latest batch of posters reveal the many characters making up the four guilds: Excellent Era, Blue Rain, Tiny Herb and Tyranny. What do you think of the cast?

  1. I really dont know most of these people. T.T Anyway from the novels it is mainly a 1 man show about Yang Yang and there was little to no romance in the book but of course it is a drama so they will change that. Funny fact Lai Yumeng and Maggie Jiang and ex-female lead Song ZuEr were all in the reality TV show together (Divas Hit The Road, Season 3).
    I really hope they does well because this is a really good opportunity as I believe this show is going to be big as the IP has a very big fan base. They just finished airing the OVA for the anime and i know that people want the drama even more now.

    1. Lol, that's quite interesting to know. And it's same for me too! Most are unfamiliar really, even Lai Yumeng. With such a huge fanbase, I wonder if the cast at least looks the part.

    2. I personally have read the book and watch the anime and most of the cast do look good. I think Maggie Jiang matches her character really well, the boss lady that doesnt take any crap from anyone. I think Yang Yang is too good looking for the main lead as in the book he inst meant to be the best looking but it is a drama so no main lead is ever going to be ugly XD. Apart from the members in Team Happy i don't know how much screen time the other people will get as in the book they do not play massive roles and thats why they have a lot of unknown names. Seeing as this is produced by Tencent do they have affiliation with any agencies, might be good to know which agencies these actors are from.

    3. On the contrary, even tbough ye xiu has the biggest presence in the novel, it also expands on the pov, circumstances and stories of the supporting cast. There is a LOT of character development in there and almost every named character is well characterized. I will not say that it is a one man show. After all, Glory is never meant to be played alone.
