Fetch my smelling salts! Drama, where are you?!
More amazing photos from the upcoming cdrama Sound of the Desert/The Song of the Moon and the Star AKA “we all know this is Da Mo Yao, anyway”. To be honest, Mainland Chinese dramas are my least favourite Asian shows and I don’t even bother to watch them thanks to the rigid acting and horrible dubbing. However, I have a weakness for historical romances and Tong Hua’s Da Mo Yao is the ultimate historical romance. I mean, she even re-wrote history so the OTP could get their happily ever after! Which is exactly the reason, why this series had such problems to get a permission for broadcast, and if changing the names is the only thing that was changed and which was necessary to get it on the TV screens, I don’t give a damn.
Eddie Peng is the perfect Huo Qu Bing and he oozes the amazing charisma and intensity of the original character. It is as if book’s Huo Qu Bing came to life. He looks absolutely dashing and gorgeous in the black robes and his chemistry with Liu Shi Shi is out of this world. The first photo is giving me heart palpitations. I remember that Hu Ge was actually rumoured to be cast as HQB in the beginning and I’m so happy Eddie Peng was cast instead, because he has this youthful exuberance and mischievousness around him that Hu Ge’s lacks and frankly, there is no way Hu Ge could convince me, he is 20+ despite his considerable acting skills.
