  1. So far i've not missed any of Nanpai Sanshu's adaptations and will continue to watch the rests as they come out, i enjoyed them and i even loved the fact that he got all these popular actors and now the upcoming popular actors to star in his films..even his variety show is fun to watch.

  2. Happy that Zhu Yilong got an offer to lead another drama! He is always a versatile actor but his acting in Guardian was really the icing on the cake.
    I didn't read the Lost Tomb novel series but isn't it BL XD It's gonna be interesting seeing Zhu Yilong playing innocent and clumsy again when his last roles were mainly sharp-minded and serious.

  3. I am head over heels for Zhu YiLong especially after seeing his fantastic acting in Guardian as Shen Wei! He absolutely nailed it and is perfect for Lead Roles in any of the Tomb Series! I would even have preferred him as Er Ye in Mystic Nine! ❤️��

    1. ummm I actually drop Mystic Nine so ... I don't know. XD hahaha

      But I still look forward for this drama. I think he'll act it out just fine!

  4. can they cast Bai Yu as Zhang Qi Ling that'd be cool

    1. I would love that but that is in our dreams.
