Stop everything you are doing. I know I say this a lot and you would literally do nothing all day if you actually listened to me, but this is a TOTAL EMERGENCY. Former EXO member and Chinese galaxy supernova troll Kris (Wu Yi Fan) has just announced his sixth film project. And he is playing an ice prince.
Is this real life? Did Asianfanfics just crash? Someone go check! That places scares me so I’ve sworn it off. But honestly, this movie sounds like an Avatar: The Last Airbender fanfic. The Nickelodeon show, guys, not that terrible M. Night Shyamalan movie. Anyway, the film is called L.O.R.D (Legend of Ravaging Dynasties) and it’s being directed by Guo Jingming, who also wrote the highly popular book series. It’s about four supernatural kingdoms (fire, ice, earth, wind?) fighting for absolute power over the rest.
The director broke the casting news on his Weibo by sharing three character posters of Kris along with the super dramatic intro: “You are the ice and snow king, you are the frozen ice of the last age. You are the dark night of despair, you are the sweetest innocence. Through the voices of thousands, you finally made the appointment. @Yifan #MovieLORD.”
Come on! You totally know at least three fanfics that started like this. I’m pretty sure I once wrote one really similar only it was about an ice queen and she killed everybody. In the preview photos, Kris has beautiful blue eyes, mostly likely carved from the world’s magical glaciers in the frozen lake core where this movie is headed in theme. I think Kris tried to smile but the Angry Bird in him is too strong.
Oh Kris, what a 360 degree turn you have made. From playing with fire…to ice. Though I’m not surprised, because when the skies of the ground were wumble legends through their twelve forces nurtured the tree of life. This is a prophecy coming true after all. Fans have seen this coming for years.
If you’re wondering, “Hmm, I wonder how this is going to look.” Let me redirect you to some fanart…
Yes…I think I’m crying.
Kris then reposted the director’s mini-fanfic and added, “”Director, your avid readers told me that in the end of your novels and movies the protagonist always dies…I’m a little nervous, can you give me a way out? I would like to be in sequels…”
Kris, what the hell! You can’t just spoil movies like this! I have enough of this over here with Leonardo Dicaprio. If he’s in a movie, there’s a 90% chance he’s going to die.
The movie seems promising if not at least immensely entertaining. Kris has a really, really awesome cast beside him. And by that I mean Fan Bingbig, who can do no wrong. The film also stars Roy Wang from TFBoys, Lin Yun, and Kuo Tsai Chieh.
Quick question: Can Jessica make a cameo as the ice kingdom’s princess? It is the role she was BORN to play! But I mean, let’s hope she can find time while designing beige panchos and committing all-out-war on the sunglasses retail market until she makes it to Barneys. Stay strong Jessica…
Can’t wait! If JYJ and Jessica aren’t at the V.I.P premiere I will be so hurt.
