ASDFJKL; I was scrolling through Wu Qian’s weibo and saw these stills, and somehow I thought she was second lead again… but lo and behold she is playing the main role!!
Wu Qian will play the main role in upcoming Chinese drama An Oriental Odyssey 盛唐幻夜, otherwise known as The Magical Nights of Glorious Tang.
The plot follows a magician who died and left behind a string of nine pearls, each representing a family’s magic spells. Two of his disciples Tian Shu and Tian Qiao try to seize the pearls but in the process of doing so, cause a fire in a temple, resulting in many casualties. The pearls are scattered. Tian Qiao somehow gains recognition and the status of a master, while Tian Shu is blamed for trying to steal the pearls and is branded a criminal. Nineteen years later…
Ye Yuan An (Wu Qian), the daughter of an official, loves investigating mysteries. Her biggest rival? OF COURSE HE’S A LOVE INTEREST. His name is Zhao Lan Zhi (Zhang Yu Jian), a police officer who’s cold but handsome at the same time.
BUT WAIT, she’s got another love interest. Out of pity, Yuan An buys a slave off the ghost city (? idk about this translation) who has lost his memory. He’s called Mu Le (Zheng Ye Cheng). He is really loyal to Yuan An and falls in love with her. These three investigate the pearl scenario, and meanwhile Mu Le regains his memory…
The drama started filming on March 18, according to Baidu Baike, and is set to air in 2018. The drama will be directed by Chou Hsiao Peng, who also directed Because of You, which achieved relatively high viewership ratings within China (3%).
wow moonbok you’ve got competition
