Two of this summer 2022 hit C-dramas will be coupled up for a forthcoming xianxia drama adapted from a novel. It’s called Hidden Gods (神隐 Shen Yin) and is the sequel to the novel and drama Ancient Love Poetry which starred Xu Kai and Zhou Dong Yu to mixed reviews. Apparently the male lead in Hidden Gods is their son and this story follows his romance with a little ghost who may or may not be a great goddess. Hidden Gods reportedly will star Cheng Yi with Zhao Lu Si and has Bai Jing Ting as the second male lead. I’m game for this casting but for Cheng Yi totally pigeon holing himself in too many xianxia roles from Love and Redemption to Immortal Samara, but I think Zhao Lu Si is right on time to take on her first big budget drama goddess xianxia role.
Hey koala I think the male lead is gonna be Jing Boran not Cheng Yi.
Why do you think so?
After watching -and falling in love with- Love between fairy and devil -it’s better than it sounds,please believe me- I’m in a fervent search of a good xianxia drama
The leads in Ancient Love poetry had no chemistry. What’s up with that. I love both of those actors and they left me cold. I thought xu Kai could have chemistry with a piece of wood but nope. Was it the way the character was written? Idk
Yeah.. good story.. but the FL seems to have more chemistry with Her disciple Gu Jun, than ML.
It’s okay for cheng yi to be in another xianxia but not a copycat Production as in “Immortal samsara” mirroring “love & redemption”…..especially on the repeated and lengthy scenes of cheng yi bleeding and close to dying …worse still, they tortured Yang zi in having the same cheesy and low quality scenes for her… 🤪
I highly doubt Bai Jingting will be Cheng Yi’s or Zhao Lusi’s second male lead after the success of Reset.
yeah, bai jingting is solidly in male lead/headlining territory now.
I dont’ get the hype with xianxia. I’ve seen two…that’s enough.
a bunch of name have been paraded but yesterday a lot of big accounts started reporting the male lead is going to be jing boran. it’s the closest credible news we’ve had so far, seems he’s finally a lock in. looking forward to this pair up!
Yeah I believe it’s Jing Bo Ran … never seen him act before…
No official announcement yet. There has been a parade of potential MLs but nothing is confirmed.
Please no more xianxia for Cheng Yi for a while. I don’t want to see the poor guy cough up blood anymore.
Cheng Yi definitely have a very strong management company…he is so heavily marketed and his pairings are all the popular female idols… Rosy is a very charismatic actress…she does pair very well with all her leads… Looking forward to this..
Yeah no…. that’s bc most of them are from his own label…. HuanRui uses him as a human meat shield
After seeing three dramas where Cheng Yi just consecutively vomits blood, I really do not want to see him in another guzhuang again. The latest rumored male lead is Jing Boran thankfully. Looking forward to seeing Zhao Lusi in her first xianxia. She portrays cute and bubbly so naturally without overdoing it, and her emotional scenes are great too.
NOOOOOO lol to anyone I don’t deem fit to start with Zhao Lusi 😂
Zhao Lu Si has done Xian Xian before. The Xian Xian genre is fine as long as it is not repetitive. I can say all Palace dramas are the same too with the power struggle or concubines fighting each other, but the route, character, and story is what makes it different. What is repetitive is when an actor doesn’t approve or chooses to act the same for a different character.
First of all it’ll not be Lusi Jie’s first big budget drama as she’s one of the top listed actress in C- industry. We’ve seen dramas like “Love like the Galaxy” and “Who rules the World” pairing with Wu Lei and Yang Yang and dominated the drama industry. And also There is still no fixed news about Chang Yi being the ml, and rumor says it’ll be Jing Bo ran.
There’s no way Bai Jingting will play second fiddle to Cheng Yi lol. Also, I believe Jing Boran has always been the rumored male lead. I honestly feel lethargic from watching too much Zhao Lusi this year. Girlie has been on costume dramas back to back.
As a westerner I personally LOVED Ancient Love Poetry and I thought that the leads of Shanggu/Houchi and Bai Jue/Qingmu were great together and I loved their chemistry. Made me cry when Shanggu disappeared. Yes it was slow in the beginning but I loved it personally and I just ADORE Gu Jun and Tianqi!
I love tianqi so much
For me I think I would like to see Cheng you paid with Zhao lusi boran can wait for another drama I want d drama lit not as boring as ancient love poetry😂😂😂pleasw we all saw how immortal samsara was i support Cheng yi😂 chayo!!☺ Not frm china tho
For me I think I would like to see Cheng yi paired with Zhao lusi 😏boran can wait for another drama I want d drama lit not as boring as ancient love poetry😂😂😂 pleas we all saw how immortal samsara was i support Cheng yi😂 chayo!!☺ Not frm china tho
I honestly want to watch Dylan Wang and Zhao Lusi in one drama , xianxia is even better after watching dongfang qingcang ❤️❤️
Lusi and Dylan in one drama would be HUGE. these two are the most popular actor and actress respectively this summer based on data in China.
Although any male lead would definitely work well with Zhao Lu Si.. I still would love a modern drama for her and Wu Lei..period!
I’m super excited for the main leads to play (Zhao Lusi and Cheng Li) fav all time , waiting excitingly
Has it been confirmed? They are my favorites too.
Zhao Lusi is my favourite actress..I’m hoping to see her marvellous acting in xianxia drama as well…And I’m excited to see Lusi and Dylan in one drama too..
the new name is now Jing Boran. cheng Yi really needs to say NO a hard no to anymore xianxia dramas. He has made so many already is schedule to make more that he will have a lifetime worth of this genre. Retire it. lol
I like zhao Lusi any roles she’s very good… I like cheng yi too he isagoodactor theo ly thing always redundant role he died and suffered a lot at the end. I WATCH THE IMMORTAL SAMSARA so many episodes I escape ..yes they add 2 episodes to make the ending happy but doesn’t have an infact…still his great act in love and the redemption the rest is just a repetition..they have to create something interesting..

I’m so looking forward of this drama , I’ve been waiting theme to be in one drama … So I’m hoping 🙏
Same here, I am a huge fan of Rose after seeing her in Love like a galaxy, I think my whole conception and view of her has completely changed. I love her comic timing and the way she really just becomes the character she’s playing.,
I think she was marvellous and also I really did love the chemistry between here and the ML….. Great Pairing 😊I think they really suited each other, they complimented each other so well and I’m looking forward to seeing more of her work and his work as well.. I think the her and Cheng Yi is gonna be a good pairing because she seems to have fabulous connection and chemistry with all her male leads and definitely speaks volumes..
Cheng Yi’s too busy with Lotus Casebook for that. And pls no… not even cuz of this fictional blood coughing but pls… leave Cheng Yi’s poor old waist alone. I’ve seen him support his waist in a lot of reuters and wearing those waist wraps. Just no. I want him in a modern drama
Jing Bo Ran and Zhao Lusi listed as leads with full cast on mydramalist.
Cheng Yi and Zhao Lusi would be an interesting pairing but I’d like a modern drama. Need a break from all the Xianxia this year😂🤣
