well remember the moment when MaoNi praised Arthur on them casting him as NQ?

 

 

Yes! That comes to mind as I wonder what he thinks of what they've done to his novel. I wonder if the two years they took to adapt EN includes this season, since it feels so rushed and different.

I have heard of the same thing about LoA, though we'll probably never find out the truth. What I meant by "compensation" is there's also Tencent's efforts to keep good relations with the Chens. Don't get me wrong. I believe even without the Chen family background, Arthur might score the coveted role based on his own works, and post-EN1 popularity. Also, most book fans seem to love his visual (at least those I read on twitter, hahahahh... I can't be sure of the Chinese readers). But with CKG on board, even when not directly involved, there will be doors to better production crew (cinematographer, musicians, costume designer, etc.). Tencent certainly can afford the best crew, but at this point we don't even know how big Tencent's share in this production yet. 

 

I would also like to know about Legend of Awakening. 

 

Got it, that makes sense. I wonder how LoA will compare quality-wise to EN1, from that influence perspective, then. Hard to tell from the BTS. From the EN2 BTS I thought that was going to be an amazing production, so who can tell hahaha.

You know, the other NQ's fans swear that their guy 100% matches the NQ on that very same cover LOL. 

 

Have they not seen his nose or chin? Uhh..

I don't know them, but it sounds like it's a good thing? It seems to me like it's an idol drama so I wasn't sure what to expect

Guy! This is really strange and may indicate that the promotion of the new series will be big. CFY  and LYZ series has not filmed yet but WeTV Thailand has already promoted it. 
The good thing for me is I will be able to see it for sure.

However, is it normal to start promoting a drama that has not even filmed yet?

That's strange for sure, wow! They're really riding the The Untamed coattails. I wonder if they're trying also bank on people missing Arthur. This seems like a good time to get mileage out of the discontent from EN2.

I was talking about it earlier! I personally see a lot of similarities between Ning Que and Fan Xian characters. And interestingly the way Arthur & Zhang Ruoyun portray their respective character are quite similar too, although EN & JoL have different directors & scriptwriters. ZRY is a more experienced actor, hence his acting is more nuanced, but his mannerism reminds me to Arthur's when playing NQ. As I see it, Mao Ni praised Arthur for interpreting NQ the way he was written. (For the record, credit should also be given to PD Yang who's very meticulous and specific.)

I think this is the same clip for that CCTV news on the rising actors?

Umm.. May be . Most Ever night1 fans in Thailand miss him and the 1st season casts.

They are still watching season2 but most agreed that the production and the script are not as good as season1. Now that the pillow book is aired, a lot of attention has shift to pillow book too.

If I remember correctly, Jordan Chan is the producer. (Can't remember who the director is). I want to be optimistic, but I remember Sword of Dynasty was produced by Feng Shaogang, and the drama is a mess. SoD has arguably a very strong wuxia vibe (which I LOVE), and the action choreography is excellent. But the writing and editing suck, and production value is low -- I can hardly believe it was from Feng Shaogang! :bawling:. I still want to finish it someday because I miss old-style wuxia very much and this one atm is the closest to those I watched growing up. But I gotta admit it's such a struggle. I hope Jordan did a way better job.

The story is good, and most people are still invested in it. I think Dylan's international fans are contributing to the viewing numbers too, though I notice they didn't really discuss it (only a few). And of course some Dylan fans who have watched EN1 actually thought Arthur is better (or better fitting) as NQ, and his chemistry with SYR outdoes the EN2 OTP.

 

Case in point (just read the thread):

I find it interesting that their chemistry is so lacking, when in real life they appear to have some sort of friendship (this should make it easier, right?). But I suppose the chemistry to be had with another actress who's playing someone who used to be a maid/daughter/sibling/etc.. as now a lover, that's not easy for anyone. I have my doubts that Arthur would've done a great job (as a lover), but at least we would've been getting what we already expected in NQ. 

 

I'm still not convinced that DW is good. He barely acted on MG, I believe he's stated himself how close DMS is to his own personality. So having to play freaking NQ as his first true acting gig is unfair to him. Add to that the fact he wasn't familiar with the source material and he (probably) didn't have the months in advance to get to know his leading lady, and the handicap gets even larger. I'm glad the fangirls noticed :) 

 

I'm also noticing the ratings on MDL and Viki are getting wider apart between 1 and 2:

 

End of last week:

EN1: 8.6

EN2: 8.2 (it was 8.9 the day it started airing)

 

Today:

EN1: 8.7 (ha! it went up)

EN2: 8.0

 

On Viki, EN2 went from 8.8 to 8.6 today, but you get way more people rating things as "10" on Viki than you do on MDL. EN1 on Viki is at 9.4.

actually YiRen and Dylan does have a sort of chemistry in the series however after seeing Arthur as NingQue with YiRen, it is really hard to accept SangSang with another NingQue, infact i find it easier to accept Dylan if they change YiRen together with Arthur.....

 

on personal opinion i do not thnk Dylan make the cut for period drama....he do better in modern flick

I tuned out or fast-forwarded all the lovey-dovey scenes so I didn't catch that kind of chemistry. His facial expressions were reminding me of Jim Carey in the Ace Ventura movies, so I just couldn't... lol.

The producer is Gordon Chan, yes the one who directed The Four the movie. Well it is better to not put a high expectation, so wont dissapointed at the end. Like what happened to EN2, it is too exaggerated, i once said it is better to keep it low so that the audiences will not put too much hope. But somehow Dylan's fans is too excited for EN2, since it is 2nd drama for him after MG. And i dont want the Hao Yi Xing will be like that, too much and over publicity even before the production has started yet... So scary... I prefer to keep it low...

Another article about Hao Yi Xing...

 

https://38jiejie.com/2020/01/21/leo-luo-and-arthur-chen-to-portray-the-dynamics-between-master-and-disciple-in-new-series-hao-yi-xing/

 

Based on the article, i think Mo Ran character is quite complicated, so in previous life, Mo Ran is Mo Wei Yu, he also the disciple of Chu WaNing (Leo's role), and somehow WeiYu for save his master, he did suicide, and he hate his master, and then he reborn as Mo Ran, which he hatred is still there, but eventually he realized that his master is always help him now n his previous life.

 

So yeah i think Mo Ran is a very good character for Arthur. Hopefully he has time to observe the character like he did for Ning Que, dont know if arthur read the novel LOL. But if you dont, you wont be able to understand the character right. 

 

 

Somehow i still in doubt that maybe tencent selected him because his face is resemble with Mo Ran's face on the animated version, what a joke right. Since the picture is widely spread o the net. But i really hope i was wrong and arthur being selected because of his previous awesome job in EN, my best summer and my motherland, to be trusted to play Mo Ran which like @Lbpg said it is a difficult character.

When Marcus Sim announced this, I was intrigued and started reading the novel^^!!!! I hope the production will do a good job bringing this to life. When will filming start???
