Ooooh this pairing is so up my alley! C-ent casting blogs are saying that Allen Ren and Zhao Lu Si are cast in an upcoming period drama. It’s called Sword Comes (or Sword Arrives) a short two word title but from the title it’s clearly a wuxia drama and not a xianxia (fantasy) drama. Both have had hit dramas in recent years and are part of the new cadre of “young actors and actresses cast in every other drama” alongside Dilraba Dilmurat, Xiao Zhan, Yang Zi, Yang Yang, Bai Lu, Wu Lei, Seven Tan, and you get my drift. I’m a recent Allen fan thanks to him making the dumb as bricks but oh so pretty merman drama Blue Whisper worth watching and of course Zhao Lu Si for me went from just so-so in Who Rules the World to my new actress bae thanks to her balancing both expressive and restrained in equal measure performance in Love Like the Galaxy.
