I made a thread a couple of months ago, but all our picture links are broke so I just decided to re-do it. This drama will be based on a book by the same name. It starts YangZi and Deng Lun.
Title: Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost (香蜜沉沉烬如霜)
Episode Count: 50
Director: Zhu Ruibin (Legend of Chusen)
Screenwriter: Zhang Yuang
Production Company: Perfect World (完美世界影视)
The Flower Goddess dies after giving birth to a daughter, Jin Mi. She has a premonition that her daughter will suffer a great love trial. Before dying she gives her an unfeeling pill since she doesn’t want her daughter to suffer over love like she did. She also orders her followers to keep her daughter’s birth a secret and to keep her imprisoned within her realm for ten thousand years.
Thousands of year later, the second son of the Heavenly Emperor, Phoenix, is saved by Jin Mi. To repay her, he takes her back with him. After hundreds of years, he develops feelings for her. Jin Mi is a pure soul that thinks she likes everyone, thus she is unable to comprehend his feelings. She feels an attraction to him but doesn’t understand what it means. Due to some misunderstandings, she kills him. At that moment she throws up the unfeeling pill and her feelings towards him overwhelm her. She sets on a quest to revive him. But can she find a way and if she does, will he forgive her?

This is my warning about how I’ve read the book and I’ve turned into that obnoxious person that keeps complaining about changes. However, I have decided to wait until the drama airs. I will keep my hopes up and start another prayer circle for this drama.
Yang Zi as Jin Mi
Deng Lun as Phoenix (Xu Feng)
Luo Yunxi as Run Yu/Night (name is Night but here he is wearing white -_-)
Cheng Yuqi as Liu Ying
Wang Yifei as Sui He
Zhou Tingwei as Qi Yuan
Some BTS pics:
Heavy Sweetness, Ash like Frost had a press conference.
YangZi looking tired but pretty 😀
Deng Lun looks so done but yay he is wearing red.
YangZi said that her first work with Deng Lun was when she was 18 years old, but even after knowing each other for a long time kissing is very embarrassing. She said she asked Deng Lun if he gets nervous and he said no because he just thinks of her as a guy. Oh Deng Lun, how can you tell a girl this? Hahahaha
This is another book to drama adaptation that I can just tell will have lots of changes. That being said I am pretty hopeful. I really liked the book and I like both leads so let’s just hope it lives up to my expectations. I am not happy with a lot of the outfits, mainly the ones for Night. In my mind, he is supposed to be wearing dark blues colors. However, they have him wearing white and a bit too happy for my liking.
The director is the same one from Chusen and I think he did a good job there. This will be your typical XianXia. But what I liked from the book was that it had a few twists here and there so I hope they keep the suspense in the drama.
Are you anticipating this drama?
