The Song of Desert <星月傳奇>, the television adaptation of a novel by Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心> author Tong Hua (桐華), recently released the MV for its theme song, “Poem of Old Age,” performed by mainland Chinese singer Della Ding (丁噹).

Translated literally as “Legend of the Moon and Stars,” The Song of Desert is based off Tong Hua’s novel Da Mo Yao <大漠謠>, which tells of the love story between wolf girl Jin Yu, who was raised with the Hun people, and her two suitors. Starring Cecilia Liu (劉詩詩), Hu Ge (胡歌), and Eddie Peng (彭于晏), The Song of Desert wrapped up filming in 2012 and was expected to air that same year.

However, the series’ broadcast was delayed due to SARFT’s dissatisfaction with the story’s depiction of historical figures, such as military tactician Huo Qubing. The drama later changed its Chinese title, as well as some of its characters’ names, in order to appease SARFT. Nevertheless, so far The Song of Desert has not yet received the green light for an official release.

Recently, The Song of Desert unveiled the MV for its theme song, titled “Poem of Old Age.” The song’s lyrics come from a poem by Han Dynasty poetess Zhuo Wenjun (卓文君), who was widowed at a young age and later eloped with poet Sima Xiangru (司馬相如). However, Sima gained much recognition during the reign of Emperor Wu of Han, and he toyed with the idea of taking on a concubine. According to legend, Zhuo then wrote “Poem of Old Age” to condemn men for their fickle love.

The song “Poem of Old Age” is sung by Della Ding, who is known for performing drama soundtrack pieces. She previously lent her voice for the soundtracks of Bu Bu Jing Qing <步步驚情> and Prince of Lan Ling <蘭陵王>.

    Easy. Kill off huo in TV ver but maintain original story in international ver. Looks great but cecilia is as exciting and sexy as the camels in a desert. Some do find camels sexy of course.

      They practically changed all the historical’s figure name in the drama. Fala’s role is supposed to be Consort Li Yan , in trailer they changed it to Qin Xiang.

      At first I was grousing why the MV featured a lot more on Hu Ge – LSS pairing, then I realized the lyrics, it’s the poem Jin Yu (LSS) recites and played for Jiu Ye (HG) after he rejected her in the novel. So technically, it’s their song.

      Totally agree with you there. Never found her beautiful, nor sexy. Same goes with hu ge, >_> he looks good, but I haven’t seen the spark (charm, interesting acting, etc). Or maybe one of his first drama has scared me off him for life. The drama, where they just talk…. And talk…. And cry…. And talk…. More crying…. Then more talking with lui yi fei >_> after that, I just don’t like them both lol. Their acting is boring lol >_>

      Eddie really fit Huo Qu Bing in the novel, so I’d be looking forward to it. Plus the character itself is so swoonworthy.

    I’ll watch it for Eddie Peng and Liu Shishi. It’s an interesting and fresh pairing. Plus I’m tired of seeing Hu Ge and LSS act in the same drama for the 1009090th time already.

    Hate SARFT’s meddling. They are the killers of creativity.

      I wonder if that is one of reasons why China’s art and film industry is nit progressing as well as it should be? But it is big now compared to the past when only a few series were made.

    Isn’t Della a Taiwanese singer? I do not remember her being a mainland singer.

      Della is a Taiwan-based mainland singer. She was born in mainland China, but her record companies have all been Taiwanese.

        Oh really? Thanks for the info! I always mistaken many singers as being Taiwanese such as Micheal Wong and Fish Leong but they all ended up being Malaysian.

        I’ve mistaken Della as a Taiwanese too. I really like her song for Lan Ling Wang, this one not so much…

    Cecilia Liu is good in acting characters with pitiful and weak personalities, and Fala Chen is just the opposite.

    Is there a possibility that the oversea version of the series will have the characters’ original name intact.

    BBJQ did have 2 versions, right?
