#talk 24: Legend of the Sun and Moon changes drama title to 'Miraculous Fate in the Wind' (风中奇缘)



    Unbelievably, even before it is going to be broadcast on 8 Oct 2014 on Hunan Television, the drama "Da Mo Yao" which was re-titled as "Legend of the Sun and Moon" has changed its drama name again! It is now called 'Miraculous Fate in the Wind' (风中奇缘) which is the chinese name for the Disney movie, Pocahontas.







  At this point, I have given up creating entry labels for this drama and will see what happens when (if) it actually gets broadcast on October 8. Apparently, the name change could be because there are some controversies with the symbolic values of the moon and star with the associations of the ethnic minorities being depicted in the drama.

   Oh wells, cross fingers?

  2. Seems I was the only one silly enough to mix up my days n thought it was 8th Sept! Happily scrolling through the net trying to find where it can be streamed from China! Or if anyone had kindly loaded it on YouTube.., silly me no wonder all the forums were silent n YouTube came up empty! Lol

    Anyhow wats with all the name change? Who does Da Mo Dao or Ballad of the Desert offend?! You would think they would be keen to cash in on the book and authors big fan following. If anything show some respect for an original piece of work and not call it Pocahontas! *shakes my fist at them*

    Still I cannot wait to see the series, so long as they don't deviate too far from the source material. I am keen to watch it raw even just to avoid delay and imagine my own dialogue! Hehe Fingers crossed for another Bu Bu Jing Xing successful novel to series adaptation, which may be wishing for too much! From the trailers the 3 leads seem to have great chemistry... Here's to hoping :)

    1. Aww super-latte that is so cute! Hahaha. Yes, there is still one more month to broadcast! And cross fingers, it actually gets broadcasted!!!

      Well, I think the first change was because the drama wanted to dissociate itself from the book Da Mo Yao since there was some controversy about Huo Qiu Bing's character being alive at the end of the novel in contradiction to history. And, this further name change is rather silly but perhaps the producers are getting nervous and just want to make sure nothing obstructs it from being broadcast!

      I agree - the chemistry in the trailer looks sooo good. I'm a hopeless Hu Ge fan for the trailer!
