Xiao Zhan and Wu Xuanyi are the Rumored Stars of Douluo Continent

The drama adaptation of Douluo Continent 斗罗大陆 based on a novel by Tang Jia San Shao 唐家三少 held a low key ceremony to mark the start of filming last December without the presence of the cast. 

With another fantasy drama underway, it's only natural for people to be curious about the leads. There have been no official announcements, but Xiao Zhan and Wu Xuanyi have been attached as the main leads. What gives this rumor some credibility is the fact that both are filming something in Hengdian World Studios.

Duoluo Continent casting

Following the likes of Martial Universe and Ever Night, Douluo Continent follows the legendary tale of a young man named Tang San. He gets transported to a world without magic and without martial arts, a place for mystical souls.

X Nine member Xiao Zhan has acted in several costume dramas since his debut in 2016. In comparison, Wu Xuanyi, who is a member of the girl groups Cosmic Girls and Rocket Girls has yet to make her drama debut. Incidentally, he has also partnered up with Wu Xuanyi's fellow member Meng Meiqi for the movie version of Legend of Chusen

  1. Honestly, I am such a huge fan of novels like Desolate Era, Martival Universe and Douluo Dali. But, the drama adaptations have been very disappointing and my heart can't really take another drama that will seem to flop.

  2. I wish tencent could stop casting rocket girls' members in iconic fantasy/xian xia novels live action adaptions. Meiqi as Biyao was a total miscast, and now Xuanyi as Xiao Wu too...

    1. I agree too! I feel that they're casted for their fanbase rather than actual talent.

    2. And their fans acting like they (mmq, wxy) are the best, and well casted, often stepping on fellow actors (xiao zhan, li qin), mocking and demeaning them because they are not as 'popular'...it kinda makes me respect those two girls less even though their fans' actions are not their fault. I really feel bad for xiao zhan, being paired with an rg member again in what looks to be a trash drama.

      Btw I've seen some fantaken pictures for this drama and wxy really doesn't look good in ancient costume. My Xiao Wu is ruined. This is really Mmq's Biyao all over again...
