"It's us against the world."

Picking up from where season one left off, Ning Que and Sang Sang’s epic story continues in Ever Night 2 将夜2 as they face a world who wants Sang Sang dead.  After malevolent forces expose Sang Sang’s identity as the person the prophecy names will usher in eternal night, everyone is out to get her.

Unwilling to see his kind hearted Sang Sang hurt, Ning Que takes it upon himself to accompany his childhood friend as she breaks through obstacles along her way. At this time, the Tang nation was about to fall prey to various forces out to ensure its destruction leaving innocent citizens in danger. As a protector of the Tang nation, Ning Que must rise above his personal grudges for the sake of his homeland. Thus begins his battle to safeguard his homeland and his love.

Casting wise, seems the drama was able to get many of the old cast to return for the second season save for a few casualties. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first shall we as the biggest shake up to the casting line up is season one’s Arthur Chen Feiyu who won’t be returning as Ning Que for the show's second installment. Quite a bit of a bummer for fans who're no doubt excited to see how the relationship between the two progresses what with Arthur’s Ning Que being the perfect foil to Song Yiren’s Sang Sang in season one and the pair’s promising chemistry. Stepping into his shoes as Ning Que instead is (the new) F4’s Dylan Wang (aka Dao Ming Si).

I’m not quite sure how he’d fare but I suppose it might work - he was able to make the big height difference with Shen Yue’s Shan Cai work and the BTS of him training for the action scenes look awesome. It's just a matter of him and Song Yiren having that chemistry.

Meanwhile, also not returning for the second season is actress Meng Ziyi's Ye Hongyu as her character will be played by actress Liu Kejun instead. Shame that despite many of the old cast returning for the show, it’s quite unfortunate that they all won’t be working together. But I guess that’s the rhythm of showbiz for you eh.

New season also means new characters - Produce 101 alumna Yang Chaoyue nabbed the role of (goddess of light) Hao Tian as well as Wang Jinsong who joins the cast as Master Qishan. Also in the impressive cast roundup are Yuan Bingyan, Liu Kejun, Adam Cheng, Kris Sun ZujunMarco Chen Zhen, Dylan Kuo and Lin Linqi amongst others.

    1. Douban score may be low but it had high viewerships so a second season is foreseeable.

      But since the original author is getting sued for plagiarism, everything is up in the air....

    2. What? Ever Night 1 got 7.5 on Douban, far from "bombed". It was praised for the directing and cinematography. Why wouldn't executives pour money into that franchise?

    3. PA = Princess Agents (the show that bombed critically). No matter how high the viewer ships, a bad ratings taints the shows reputation. Execs n investors are cautious ppl. They're looking for high viewership AND high ratings b4 they will sink money into sequels...

  4. I love Didi so I'm okay with the cast change. At least we actually got a season 2, that doesn't happen often.

  5. This new dude is not Ning que,this guy is emotionless just like a tree. Chen was the best. Why did they not make sure he finished this drama. Now it all suck

  6. Arthur Chen was way too cocky. The new dude suits Haotian better coz from what I've gathered on forums, Haotian eventually takes over SangSang's body, that twin girl in SangSang's dream. Imagine Arthur Chen + Haotian as couple. Bleh, that guy was much better suited to SangSang.
