Since Dilraba Dilmurat (迪麗熱巴) and Simon Gong Jun’s (龔俊) new drama The Legend of Anle <安樂傳> wrapped in 2021, word has been sparse till it was recently rumored to air on July 12th, right on the heels of Hidden Love <偷偷藏不住> starring Rosy Zhao (趙露思) and Chen Zheyuan (陳哲遠)!
Dilraba Shows Flirting Antics in New Snippets Teaser
In May this year, The Legend of Anle went up Weibo search ranks when rumors swirled that there were “no kissing scenes” throughout the historical drama, save for a forehead kiss. Expressing surprise at the rumor, netizens bemoaned a “waste” of the two hotties’ extraordinary looks if it were so.
Luckily for fans on both sides awaiting sizzling sparks between the two, the rumors dispersed themselves when the latest behind-the-scenes teaser released by the crew showed Dilraba and Gong Jun’s sweet interactions – Gong Jun falls to the ground helplessly and shouts, “What are you doing?” as Dilraba smiles sweetly while leaning close on him, replying, “Just lay still and be good!”
The scene then shifts to Dilraba and Gong Jun rowing a boat when she tries to snatch the oars from him; she unexpectedly lifts her leg up high the next moment to tease him, to which he replies, “So fearsome right from the start?” Even when the boat capsizes, and the two fall into the water, Dilraba does not forget to play to the occasion. Leaning in close to Gong Jun, she says, “Prince must spend more time with me, and you’ll surely be impressed!”
Mesmerized by Dilraba’s “flirting” repertoire, netizens praised the actress and responded with hilarious comments, “I’m online waiting for Ren Anle to flirt with me”, and “Anle, I’m right here!”
Recapping the Plot
Sweet interactions aside, the 40-episode adaptation from “The Emperor’s Book” is actually a tale of revenge centered on Di Zi Yuan (Dilraba), who changes her name to Ren Anle after her family is beheaded an edict following treason accusations. Anle tries her best to settle folks left homeless by the ongoing wars, while investigating the truth behind her family’s tragic fate. Unexpectedly, Crown Prince Han Ye (Gong Jun) appoints her as one of his people and the two start joining hands to solve major corruption cases and finally usher in an era of peace, and Anle also manages to restore her family’s good name.
