My Own Swordsman director to film Gu Long comedy wuxia

The series is directed Shang Jing and “written by” of My Own Swordsman, so I expect it might be similar in tone. The original listed writer was Ning Caishen of  My Own Swordsman but has been changed to Shang Jing after Ning Caishen got banned for doing drugs, but I suspect the script may still be based off his script. The two’s tone should work well with the novel, which is  episodic and an attempt by Gu Long to focus on the more human and mundane stories of the wuxia world.
