Dylan Wang and Zhu Xudan Stars as the Dragon King and Maidservant in Xianxia Romance Drama

dylan wang zhu xudan
Just announced today is the drama adaptation of Yulong 龙 which fans of Stairway to Stardom may find familiar since it was the drama being filmed within that modern drama about showbiz. Yu Long will be turned into a xianxia centering on the story of a maidservant who rescues a snake, only it turns out it wasn't a snake at all but a thousand year old dragon!

Dylan Wang whom we last saw in Ever Night 2 opposite Song Yiren, will star as the dragon, Yuchi Longyan. He will be joined by Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms baddie, actress Zhu Xudan as Liu Ying. Liu Ying is the maidservant who saves Yuchi Longyan's life and whom he wants to marry as repayment.

Both actors were spotted trying on period clothes last week and Dylan was even photographed trying on a long blondish wig in the costume fitting. With today’s announcement, I guess we now finally have confirmation as to what these two were preparing for. 

Yulong held its boot ceremony today which means filming for the drama has already started.

  2. The synopsis is just like Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms... the snake she found was in fact a dragon and Yehua marries her as a repayment

    2. The story may seem unoriginal... like most xianxia stories, if they're not saving a snake or dragon, they're saving a phoenix. This drama is an adaptation of the game. She is a maid and her young mistress is afraid of snakes and wanted to kill the snake, but she saved him instead. It's the same concept but different execution.

    2. WHAT? Now I'm uninterested lol. It's so weird to see Bambi (her English name) to be the lead in a somewhat similar drama as TMOPB when she was already a supporting character there. Pleaseeee change the plot a bit. What is it with the three lifetimes thing tho lol. That concept became so popular after TMOPB.

    3. I don't know if you know this but... honestly TMOPB was not the trend setter for these similar themes. These elements have been used in many many novels before TMOPB, which is a plagiarized novel. TMOPB didn't even focus on three lifetimes much. Si Yin was pretty much a cross-dressing Bai Qian and Ye Hua died alone as his mortal form since Bai Qian couldn't be bothered to stick around for it. Because of Yulong, the maid dies and he decides to watch over her or something. I can't do anything to change the script, so complaining to me won't help you.

    4. Plus I played the game, and it's different. So it's simple. If you don't like it, you don't have to watch it.
