Yang Yang as Ye Xiu
Maggie Jiang as Chen Guo
Li Yu Jie as Tang Rou
This may be long overdue since we haven’t updated much in March but Legend of Fuyao released first trailer starring Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan back in mid March.
Records of Southern Mist House has released a large batch of the two leads’ character posters, bts of the male lead played by Jing Boran, character stills of the supporting cast that includes the amazing Zhao Lixin and the lovely veteran Liu Mintao and absolutely stunning background/scenery stills. At first, I was not feeling Liu Yi Fei‘s outfits, but it grew on me as more pictures were released. The story itself takes a rather somber tone and thus, the darker palette is quite befitting despite the other colorful choice in the manhua (vivid colors are used to capture the attention of readers).
