    Default The Deer and the Cauldron 2014 《鹿鼎記》 - Han Dong, Jia Qing, Zhang Meng

    The latest adaptation of wuxia novel, The Duke of Mount Deer <鹿鼎記>, began filming at Hengdian World Studios on September 8. Helmed by Hong Kong directorSamson Lai (賴水清), the drama will star mainland Chinese actor Han Dong (韓棟) as Wei Xiaobao, the storys flirtatious and witty protagonist.


    As writer Jin Yongs (金庸) last work, and one of his most critically acclaimed novels,The Duke of Mount Deer is different from other stories in the wuxia genre because its protagonist does not become an expert martial artist. Rather, Wei Xiaobao depends on his luck and cunning to get through life. During his escapades, he ends up befriending the Kangxi Emperor and marrying seven women.
    In every adaptation of The Duke of Mount Deer, much attention is placed on the actresses cast as Wei Xiaobaos seven wives. Currently, six of the roles have been confirmed. Zhang Meng (張檬) will be Shuanger, Loura Lou (婁藝瀟) will play the spoiled Princess Jianning, Jia Qing (贾青) will be the beautiful Ake, Viann Zhang (張馨予) will play Su Quan, Zhao Ke (趙珂) will play Fang Yi, and newcomer actress Wu Qian (吳倩) will be Mu Jianping.

    I may watch this simply because it's another Zhang Meng / Zhang Xinyu collaboration, the fact that I utterly despise The Deer and the Cauldron, the most overrated and worthless of all of Zha Liangyong's works, notwithstanding.

    Horrible time period, inadequate characterization, and barely coherent plot. Why this novel is so critically acclaimed is beyond me. Must be rampant stupidity. The historical events barely even act as a backdrop, let alone integrate into the crappy story.

    Granted, this series can't possibly be any worse than Zhang Jizhong's 2008 adaptation. Boy was that ever a steaming hot plate of utter FAIL.

    Talk about making something that's already tawdry and valueless even more so.

    Han Dong as Wei Xiaobao, interesting. I got to say I really like Han Dong, but him playing Xiaobao, I am not very sure if he can pull it off. I guess I really have high expectations, the '84 version is one of my favorites with Tony and Andy, and it's hard to surpass them both I think. Dicky Cheung's version was alright, except for they changed the ending of Jianning, and ZJZ's version sometimes was going overboard, and seriously I think HXM is kind of too handsome to play WXB, but he could pull it off, though I gotta say I was more intrugued by Wallce Chung's Kangxi. Nevermind, I am wondering who will get to be Kangxi, the second male lead? I hope it's someone nice. As for the girls well it is okay, I guess, although I don't get why Zhang Meng is in quite a lot of costumes dramas nowadays....not that I don't like her, but well....

    While I don't mind seeing this, I hope Han Dong don't act the way he did with TBG in Swordsman. His overacting bothers me. But that's just me. I feel there's a difference between silly and overacting. Which I felt his portrayal of TBG was. Hopefully he can pull off WXB by coming off as natural silly instead of overacting his way around from scene to scene.

    Wow...none of the actress is appealing. What happened to all the beauties of China?
    Currently in love with Bae Suzy...for superficial reasons.

    Kang Min, Li Mochou, Su Quan ...

    ... what is with Zhang Xinyu playing all of these menacing and alluring wuxia women?

    Does she give off some sort of femme fatale vibe?

    I could understand the trend if it was limited to just one studio ... but it's not even the same team of producers.

    Maybe she was shaking some tata's for the producers? Who knows lol... naw I think she has that seductive look to her, and having her pass scandal can help her with her with her type cast.

    If I'm reading the names correctly, the director is also the actor for 鰲拜.

    I think Han Dong will be a fun WXB. Zheng Meng is looking adorable, and the actress for the princess role has that cute but also potentially very annoying/clingy face =P

    I'm still on the fence about Han Dong as WXB. But I must say I'm glad he is now headlining a rather high profile series - a great opportunity for him to become a leading man, rather than all the support characters he usually plays.

    Yup, not a fan of any of the female either, I hope Han Dong smash it! Always seen him in serious roles, I wonder how he will do with WXB. Good luck to him.
