Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan Confirmed as Leads for Upcoming Fantasy Epic C-drama Legend of Fuyao

Good news is better when confirmed fast and this confirmation satisfied my excited appetite for a potentially great onscreen drama pairing. Last night the Chinese drama fans were treated to a drama cast flirting via Weibo that put to rest the leads for the upcoming C-drama adaptation of romance novel Empress Fuyao. C-actress Yang Mi has been cast for a month now and started costume fitting but the public was eagerly awaiting who would be her leading man coming off her mega successful last drama pairing with Mark Chao in Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles Peach Blossoms.

Yang Mi started off with her Weibo post of “Hello, I am taking medicine, you are? @RuanJingTian”. The Chinese phrase “taking medicine” (fuyao) has the same pronunciation as her character Fuyao so that was cute, and was clear once she Weibo tagged Ethan (Chinese name Ruan Jing Tian). He then replied “Hello, I am dancing concubine. You are? @YangMi”, with the Chinese phrase “dancing concubine” (wuji) the same pronunciation as his character’s name in the drama Prince Chang Sun Wu Ji. So there you have it, MiMi and Ethan as the next blockbuster drama OTP for Legend of Fuyao (drama title) so start your countdown for 2018! Continue reading
