Wolf-girl Liu Shishi meets the dashing young general played by Eddie Peng in the first stills of new Shanghai Tangren drama Desert Melody 大漠谣. Liu Shishi plays a girl raised by the wolves in the deserts of the West who falls for the famous Han-dynasty general Huo Qubing in this series adapted from the book of the same name by author Tonghua (BuBuJingXin). The drama has yet been approved by SARFT due to accusations of defamation of Huo Qubing.
Fellow Tangren series Xuanyuan Sword: Scar of Heaven 轩辕剑之天之痕 has been much more lucky, finally airing this week in Hunan TV’s new weekly slot (two eps a day on Friday and Saturdays) this week. The gorgeous cast of Jiang Jinfu, Liu Shishi, Hu Ge, Gulnazar, Tang Yan, Lin Gengxin, Ma Tianyu and Lv Yi has so far not disappointed. Liu Shishi’s acting has always been improving, and her portrayal of Tuoba Yu’er is already so much more natural than her equally sassy role in Strange Hero Yi Zhimei.
