The drama adaptation of Tong Hua’s Da Mo Yao recently wrapped production after four months of filming, with the cast filming the Chang An scenes first in Heng Dian and then moving to Xiang Shan to film the desert and Xi Yu sequences. At this point I’ve seen all the BTS stills, which are so thoroughly leaked that I’ve pretty much seen every major scene from this novel transformed from written to visual. I’ve settled into grudging acceptance of the casting, and its actually Tangren’s latest ridiculous and horrible Xuan Yuan Sword that has me worried that DMY will turn into an equally mind numbing mess. XYZ is so so bad it actually pains me to know it came from the set production minds behind Bu Bu Jing Xin, which was flawed but ultimately quite winning. I can only cross my fingers that DMY will resemble its cousin BBJX in quality. With that said, the latest pictures finally show us what feral wolf girl Yu Jin looks like, a get up best described as “beggar hippie girl with dreads”. Liu Shi Shi definitely does not look like a young teen as Yu Er is described in that stage in the book, but I like that she exhibits an earthy quality. But what gets me super happy and excited is to see Brother Wolf in action, still more dog than wolf. Better yet, his brood of puppies roamed the set and caused cuteness explosions everywhere. Check it out.
