From the Kong Sang Continent comes the tale of the tumultuous love story of Princess Zhu Yan of the Chi Yi Tribe and Royal Prince Shi Ying. The framing of the Queen results in the Prince being banished to Jiu Yi Mountain to cultivate. Once solely focused on his tasks, he develops romantic feelings for his disciple Zhu Yan. But their student/teacher relationship prevents either from expressing their true feelings.


Fate then works against them when they choose opposing sides in a political struggle of life and death proportions.
Eventually, putting aside their issues, they pledge to protect their beloved Kong Sang Continent.

First look at Xiao Zhan, Ren Min in upcoming fantasy romance



Upcoming melo romance Faraway Beauty 玉骨遥 (literal translation) stars Ren Min as Zhuyan, a princess of Kongsang empire who escapes from an arranged marriage. Xiao Zhan plays Shiying, a prince of the Kingdom of Kongsang who is banished to the remote mountains and ends up as her teacher and love interest.

Directed by Jiang Jiajun (The Legend of Xiao Chuo) and written by Wu Yingying (The Wife’s Lies, Bubu Jingqing), the Tencent series is a very loose adaption of Cang Yue’s fantasy romance novel Zhuyan.

玉骨 can refer to either a corpse or a beauty, and I’ve chosen to go with the latter…

Fantasy drama Yu Gu Gao confirms leads in Xiao Zhan and Ren Min




Yu Gu Yao (玉骨遥) is an upcoming fantasy drama based loosely on the novel Zhu Yan (prequel to the Li Yi Feng’s Mirror drama) written by Cang Yue (Listening Snow Tower). Ren Min plays a kind and headstrong princess of the Chi Clan who escapes an arranged marriage (her name is the name of the novel; looks like we can expect a lot of changes to make this Male Lead-centered drama), and Xiao Zhan plays a cold and aloof royal prince who is sent to the mountains to cultivate (due to the Grand Priest’s premonition of him falling in love with a girl). He is nine years older than her and she becomes his disciple… their destiny and romance tied to the future of Kong Sang Kingdom. At one point, she draws his blood. 


Booting Ceremony 3/28 and Official Posters:

Looks like the new title Yu Gu Yao with Yu Gu (meaning Jade Bone – a hairpin) referring to the gift he gives her. It is a betrothal gift a Kong Sang King would give to their future queen. She doesn’t know this until later. Spoiler: She uses the same hairpin to stab him.







XZ looks awesome:love:

it seems like it is coming! 

Well, I suppose it depends on wheather they have already obtained an official registration number or distribution license. You know how long and bumpy the way of passing all the authorities' checks might be...
