Yu Zheng’s “Yun Zhong Ge” Releases Theme Song and MV
The highly anticipated ancient drama Yun Zhong Ge <雲中歌>, officially known as Love Yunge from the Desert, recently released the music video for its theme song, “Silk.” The song is written by the drama’s producer Yu Zheng (于正) and sung by well-known mainland Chinese singer Chris Lee (李宇春).
Yun Zhong Ge is adapted from an online novel of the same name, written by Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心> author Tong Hua (桐華). In the original story, female lead Yunge first falls in love with Prince Liu Fuling, whom she rescued from the harsh desert when he was eight years old. Yunge and Fuling promise to meet up in the city of Chang’an in ten years’ time, but when she arrives, she mistakes Liu Bingyi for Liu Fuling. Devastated at seeing the beautiful woman by Bingyi’s side, Yunge flees back to the desert. There, she chances upon Fuling himself and finds herself drawn into the battles of the royal court.
The released song and music video focus on the fated encounter between Yunge (Angelababy 楊穎) and Liu Bingyi (Chen Xiao 陳曉). Although Yu Zheng’s lyrics are sparse, each line is rich with meaning, and the melodious piece perfectly matches the romantic story between Yunge and Bingyi.
“Silk” features vocals by singer Chris Lee, also known as Li Yuchun, who is famous for winning the mainland Chinese singing contest Super Girl <超級女聲> in 2005. A graduate of the Sichuan Conservatory of Music, Chris is known for her upbeat and trendy songs. However, she adapted her usual style to fit the mood of Yun Zhong Ge’s theme song. Yu Zheng was so impressed with the outcome that he likened listening to the song to “having dessert when waiting for the main course.”
Apart from Angelababy and Chen Xiao, Yun Zhong Ge also stars Lu Yi (陸毅) and Du Chun (杜淳). The series’ air date has yet to be finalized.
