Fa Hai is sent to the city to investigate reports of missing children.  Af first, he thinks Bai Suzhen and Xiao Qing are the ones responsible but becomes their ally later on as they join forces to fight many villains. However, Fa Hai has a premonition of a flood in Jinshan and grows increasingly suspicious of Bai Suzhen.

Booting Ceremony 

Only Alan was present at the Booting Ceremony









There are a few reasons to be excited about this. For one, Alan Yu finally takes the lead! He's been a supporting character in every costume drama that he's starred in that it'll be nice to see him stepping into leading roles for a change. 


He also reunites with Ju Jing Yi (Legend of Yun Xi) who played his love interest in Xuan Yuan Sword: Legend of the Han Clouds2017. They really didn't get enough screentime then (you'll know why when you watch it), so it'll be cute to see their couple pairing getting another chance.

Legend of White Snake led by Ju Jingyi and Alan Yu wraps filming



As this remake is looking very much like an idol drama, there's bound to be skeptics who are worried about another childhood favorite headed for ruin. After watching Ju Jingyi in Legend of Yunxi, I'm quite optimistic if not downright excited for this especially since she reunites with Alan Yu Menglong from Xuan Yuan Sword: Legend of the Han Clouds. Also in the cast are Xiao Yan (The Legends) and Pei Zitian (The Taoism Grandmaster). 


Alan Yu finished filming his scenes back in June while Ju Jingyi just wrapped in the past couple days. It seems like the leading ladies are almost always the last ones standing though I supposed it makes sense with Ju Jingyi playing the titular white snake.

Can't wait for this because of JJY. I adore her in Legend of Yunxi so eagerly waiting for this one. She looks absolutely beautiful in historical dramas. Though, I am just not big on remakes but will watch this for her.

This is another adaptation of The Legend of Madame White Snake? I hope that the plot will not deviate from the original classic too much.

This is not the first time that Alan Yu and Ju Jingyi will act as an on-screen couple. Ju Jingyi previously made an appearance as Alan Yu's love interest in the 2017 drama Xuan Yuan Sword: Legend of the Han Clouds. Legend of White Snake is adapted from a classic Chinese folktale about a love story between a human and a white snake spirit cultivating to be an immortal.

There is a trailer! The visuals look nice. The CG doesn't look too jarring from this trailer. I LOVE how they incorporated the original theme song. Anyone know when the release date is?
