🗣🗣 I AM READY!!!
Chinese historical fantasy drama titled Novoland: Pearl Eclipse officially announced their lead cast in William Chan and Yang Mi. They also released the first character posters, even though the drama just started production.
Whoever decided to cast these two is a genius. William Chan and Yang Mi look regal and perfect together. I am a major William fan, and Yang Mi always slays historical fantasies, so I am LIVING for this pairing right now.
WOW!!! He always looks stunning with his hair up in historical dramas. I remember watching Lost Love in Times and losing my mind whenever William appeared🤩. Just look at this man –
Okay, back to Novoland: Pearl Eclipse. From what I know, there isn’t a definite release date yet, but it will air this year. It is set to run for 40 episodes.
Here is the synopsis 👉🏼 During the Zheng dynasty in the vast ocean of Novoland, the slaughter of the Merfolk is caused by the search for a magical pearl that could only be obtained from a young Naga girl’s tears. For this reason, Hai Shi lost her parents and her whole Yu coastal village. During Hai Shi’s most critical moment, she met Fang Zhu, the first official of the imperial court, and she became his disciple. Not long after, Zheng dynasty’s imperial court falls into great chaos. Emperor Chi Zhong Xu seems to be unable to keep the order in his court and looks like a self-indulgent ruler. But the persistent support from Fang Zhu allows the nation to see a new time of peace. Hai Shi becomes the personal guard of the emperor, and she starts to be interested in him. When the emperor discovers that Hai Shi is a girl, he starts having feelings for her. Hai Shi will have to face her own feelings towards Fang Zhu and the Emperor. (source – My DramaList)
Other members of the cast include:
– Xu KaichengHe seems to be playing the role of Emperor Chi Zhong Xu. I have seen him in Well Intended Love 1 & 2 and The Love Knot: His Excellency’s First Love, so I’m looking forward to what he brings to this drama.
– Chen Xiao YunShe is the only new face for me. Her costume is beautiful. I love the gold embroidery and her crown.
– Wilson Wang His face is familiar. I believe he was in the 2017 medical drama – Surgeons. That drama is one of my faves, and I have gone back to rewatch it a good number of times.
– Yuan Yu Xuan I have also seen her a few times in The Flame’s Daughter, Legend of Fu Yao, and Eternal Love of Dream.
I am really excited about this series, so I hope the filming runs smoothly and that all the actors and crew members stay safe on set. I’ll continue to keep you all updated.
