Arthur Chen won't return for Ever Night Season 2

Arthur Chen Director Yang Yang Ever Night
Oh no, I'm just the bearer of bad news this week. After Tientsin Mystic 2 changed its lead, we get another change in cast now that Arthur Chen Feiyu confirms the rumors that he won't be returning for season 2 of Ever Night 将夜. It doesn't seem like the best timing to break the news as the drama is still airing, but maybe it's best to be up front about it.

It was sweet that Arthur Chen uploaded photos with Director Yang Yang who played a huge part in casting him in his very first drama. He writes, "Thank you to each and every one of the Ever Night cast and crew for the 200 days of companionship. Thank you to Director Yang Yang for giving me the opportunity two years ago to enter Ning Que's world and to grow together with this stubborn young man. To me, you are like a strict mother, but also a close friend. Today's Ning Que can shine brightly on screen because of your meticulous guidance, turning a bashful kid like me into a young man. Thank you to everyone who has liked Ever Night. 宁缺毋滥 (Chinese idiom)"

Ever Night has been quite well received along with its rookie lead. It's unfortunate to know that the main actor won't be able to reprise his role due to scheduling conflict. Arthur Chen is currently filming another fantasy drama called Legend of Awakening

  3. I think everything have heard the rumor that Dylan Wang will replace him in the second season. I think this rumor is pretty solid considering Dylan said in the interview that his next project would be historical.

    It'd weird if he played Ning Que because I'm pretty sure second season is direct continuation to the season 1's story with the same set of characters. It's not a spin off.

    I didnt watch Meteor Garden so I dont know what to expect but hopefully he can bring the same charm to Ning Que the way Feiyu did.

    Now that I think, it's amazing that Eternal Love cast can reprise their role until Season 3 (which is confirmed already). Might be becaude the cast are not too popular and have no other better work offer hence no schedule conflict. It's so hard to get popular cast or big name cast to return for second season. Feiyu is relatively new but he's the son of famous director Chen Kaige, naturally he'll get many other work opportunities.

    1. I think it's not just because he is a son of a famous director, but people have grown to love him too. He has a lot of potential. His acting is also acceptable, for someone his age, he is very handsome, and his arrogance and fresh casual/relax vibe are likeable. He also looked great in fighting scenes He delivers his movements smoothly with enough force, so it looked real.

  4. Sad news as I'm mainly watching because of Arthur Chen. Hope Legend of Awakening will be airing somewhere I can watch!

  5. Chen Feiyu was never the reason I watch Ever Night. First it was the anticipation following the trailer, then the good word of mouth, then of course the drama itself, which delivers so far! But I've grown attached to the cast, particularly him, Song Yiren and some of the supporting cast. So it's a sad news for me. It will feel bittersweet to complete the series, and it won't feel the same without him in Season 2.

  6. Agree with lenje above. I came to really like CF's NQ and his chemistry with the cast. I may give season 2 a chance but prays that it's not Dylan Wang - I just can't see him as NQ. If he is confirmed as NQ, I may just stick to the novels. Let's hope CF can come back for season 3.

  7. That's sad as I just started watching yesterday after all the praise this drama has received. Loving the drama so far and I'm enjoying Arthur's performance but I guess I will try not to get too attached to the actor now.
