Yu Zheng actually has a sense of humor. It’s evil, but hella hilarious considering he caused a near riot with his one weibo today. Yumama announced that he was making casting changes for his adaptation of The Swordsman, with Han Dong playing Dong Fang Bu Bai, Chen Qiao En playing Ren Ying Ying, and Yuan Shan Shan playing Dong Fang Bu Bai’s younger sister Dong Fang Xiao Mei. I don’t even know why anyone out there could have taken this as anything other than as an April Fool’s joke, since there isn’t a Dong Fang Xiao Mei anywhere in the novel. And in fact, the name is a riff on a character in Yun Zhong Ge called Shang Guan Xiao Mei (Xiao Mei means little sister). Anyhoo, sorry to burst anyone’s bubble, but the original casting stands. With that said, we get a first glimpse of Chen Qiao En as Dong Fang Bu Bai and Han Dong as Tian Buo Guan. I can safely say that these two are now my favorite characters for this drama adaptation. Love their style and the fire I glimpse even on the surface. They are going to steal the show, mark my words. Though there is no way anyone can convince me Dong Fang Bu Bai has got boobs like Chen Qiao En’s famous perky bosom.
