Fighter of the Destiny releases teaser

It’s nice to see productions in all different genres coming through the works as opposed to every other drama being a palace period or any other of the genres that have been popular lately.

Fighter of the Destiny 择天记 has released more stills and a teaser.  Starring Lu HanGulnazarWu QianYao DiZeng ShunxiXu LingyueJu XianhaoZhang JunzhuGao HanyuChen Shu, and Eric Tsang, it seems like as of late, a decent production team is only covering the basics of what it takes to make a successful drama as other production teams ramp up on these regards.  Dramas with productions that may have once commanded hoards of fans and dominated ratings are finding it harder to do so with other productions in the line-up.

Fighter of the Destiny begins filming

In the case of some of these more recent dramas, I really wish they took the money from making pretty character posters and re-allocated it to the actual production or costumes… since some things still… just look off to me… DX

Duke of Mount Deer airs

Han Dong tries to sell make up…

 

Jin Yong fans who are allergic to Yu Zheng can rejoice as Huace Media’s rendition of Duke of Mount Deer, has finally aired on December 20th.  Starring Wei Qianxiang, Lou Yixiao, Jia Qing, Zhang Xinyu, Wu QianZhang Meng, and Han Dong, character stills have been released.  With this 50-episodes monster unleashed last week  along with  Fan Bingbing‘s 86-episode The Empress of China (December 19th) and the recently released 60 episode Red Sorghum, we have to wonder if Chinese networks have suddenly decided to try to make us all go blind.

Your face after seeing this trailer.

With their latest adaptation of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils as well as Virtuous Queen of Han, Huace Media is poised to release a barrage of adaptations of Chinese epics in literature and history.  Adding to the list of epics will be their adaptation of Duke of Mount Deer, starring Wei Qianxiang, Lou Yixiao, Jia Qing, Zhang Xinyu, Wu Qian, and (probably most importantly) Zhang Meng and Han Dong.

This 50-episodes behemoth has recently released its first trailer (6 minutes!!  A baby by Chinese trailer-length standards).  More stills below the cut.

Stills released from latest Duke of Mount Deer

Zhang Meng plays Shuang’er, the “ideal lover” who gets the most ink-time.

With Han Dong as Wei Xiaobao and Zhang Meng as Shuang’er, the 2014 television adaptation of the Duke of Mount Deer promises to have human eye candy. Shawn Wei Qianxiang takes on the role of Kang Xi, while Lou Yixiao plays the sadistic Princess Jianning. Wei’s most beautiful wife, A’Ke, will be played by Jia Qing, and Viann Zhang will play yet another wife, Su Quan (for those who don’t know: Wei ends up with seven, total). Mu Jianping, the youngest wife, will be played by Wu Qian. Fang Yi will be played by Zhao Ke…

Duke of Mount Deer is set in the Qing dynasty (as evidenced by the bald heads). Wei is a rascal of a man, who manages to endear himself with Kang Xi. Much of the plot results from his efforts not to displease either Kang Xi, or the rebel sect that opposes the Qing emperor. The drama will run for 50 episodes.  Continue reading
