This New Still from Yang Mi’s New Drama Reminded Everyone of “Eternal Love”

China’s been on a roll with adapting novels to TV, and when it comes these book-to-TV adaptations, one can’t help but to think of the queen who started it all—Yang Mi (杨幂).

And the 30-year-old isn’t stopping anytime soon. Whenever Yang Mi is attached to a show, there’s a good chance that the show was adapted from a novel. And if Yang Mi is starring on the show, there’s an even bigger chance that the drama would become a ratings hit.

Perhaps this is why everyone’s already talking about her upcoming drama, and about one specific promotional still from the show. Her next big effort Legend of Fuyao <扶摇>, adapted from the popular novel of the same name by Tianxia Guiyuan (天下归元), is reminding everyone of her last show Eternal Love <三生三世十里桃花>, which finished its run earlier this year as the most-watched show online in Mainland China, ever.

Legend of Fuyao stars Yang Mi as Meng Fuyao, born from a divine lotus petal, who journeys through five continents to reveal a conspiracy. She falls in love with the crown prince Zhangsun Wuji, portrayed by Taiwanese actor Ethan Juan (阮經天).

The drama is Ethan’s first television drama in seven years, as well as his first attempt at a period drama. These facts are quite reminiscent of Yang Mi’s last costar Mark Chao (趙又廷), who starred alongside her in Eternal Love, also Mark’s first drama where he had to don period costumes.

Adding more to the déjà vu was a new Legend of Fuyao promotional still where Yang Mi, in men’s clothes, looks longingly at Ethan. There was a very similar scene like that in Eternal Love, where Mark looks at an androgynously-dressed Yang Mi.

Legend of Fuyao is slated for 2018 broadcast.
