We talked about the drama a few time in entertainment updates, but never really went too deep into the story. Redemption time! The Chinese name of the drama is 半妖倾城 which can be translated to Half-Demon, Half Demon Allure. With official name Demon Girl, this drama is produced by Yu Zheng and is starring Zhang Zhehan and new actress Li Yitong. Sigh, whatever. I feel like Yu Zheng has some really weird modern projects this year. Had he gone insane after the Yun Zhong Ge’s sad ratings?
- Scheduled with 35 episodes
- Airing Rights bought by Hunan TV
- Filming will be in Shanghai, Beijing, ang Tianjin
- Based on Novel of the same name 半妖倾城
