The official trailer for one of my most anticipated c-dramas of the year, Hua Xu Yin, has just been released! WOOO!
Even if Bu Bu Jing Qing and Da Mo Yao are out of the game in the c-drama scene this year, I have one remaining light of hope–HUA XU YIN!!! Don’t look at me for a synopsis or an explanation of the plot for this drama, because I am still pretty confused about it. It is about a princess, Ye Zhen (Lin Yuan), who comes back to life and creates dreams for people to experience. She falls in love with a prince, Mu Yan (Kevin Cheng).
So, Hua Xu Yin is based off of the original novel written by Tang Qi Gong Zi. But from what I’ve heard, it is more of a loose interpretation rather than an accurate adaptation. I haven’t read the novel, so I don’t have any expectations for the adaptation to live up to. IMO the trailer was pretty good! It is rather dramatic but it builds up suspense more than the average c-drama trailer. Then again, there are no subs so I didn’t fully understand what was going on. >_<“”
Now that the trailer is out of the way, time for some picspamming! All of the official Hua Xu Yin stills are already floating around out there, so instead I’m gonna share some other pics that I found. There are tons of awesome Yuan Hong pics…….I mean, just LOOK AT THIS..
^THE KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR!
It is no secret that after Yuan Hong’s amazing performance as 13th prince in Bu Bu Jing Xin, I will forever be a Yuan Hong fan for life. I love all of his fanpics and he has such a charming personality even off-screen.
I think a lot of people will also jump at the casting of Kevin Cheng as the lead role of Mu Yan. But a lot of fans of the original novel are not all too keen about this casting choice because he is not what they envisioned for the role.
Even with the furs, Kevin can still look like a dashing prince, eh? *wink wink*
It’s hard for me to find good pics of Kevin Cheng, who unfortunately, is the victim of poor costumes/hairstyle. T_T”” There has been a lot of criticism over the drama’s costuming choices, and I quite agree. I mean, it’s not like it looks horrendous but seriously, what have they done to Kevin with those blue bangs. T_T”” The costumes overall could be much better, but that’s not everything in a drama. Also, according to this article, the drama is still a high-quality production that has put a lot of effort into the setting & costumes of the drama.
^Kevin & Lin Yuan, AKA Mu Yan and Princess Ye Zhen. The drama synopsis makes Princess Ye Zhen sound like the main heroine, and yet the actress Lin Yuan is not really promoted in the drama stills and press conferences. Instead, Kevin, Yuan Hong, and Jiang Xin are heavily promoted as the main cast.
Jiang Xin totally wowed me in the Legend of Zhen Huan and I am really looking forward to another solid performance from her in Hua Xu Yin! She is paired with Yuan Hong. There is this one epic scene in the trailer where she battles with Yuan Hong. EHEHEHE. Some of Jiang Xin’s costumes look great, but others are not very flattering on her. So, here’s just this one beautiful still of her. *w*
