As a highly anticipated and widely discussed drama, "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality," starring Yang Yang and Gina Jin, has garnered attention from the initial preparations to the start of filming, generating a lot of buzz among netizens.
Recently, the production team released new promotional materials, including individual posters of Yang Yang and Gina Jin, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of their character transformations. Undoubtedly, "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality" has once again become a hot topic, dominating the trending lists and capturing the interest of netizens.
In the behind-the-scenes footage, Yang Yang, who plays the male lead, unveiled several new looks after previously impressing audiences with his black attire. With his striking appearance and exceptional command of period costumes, whether it's the elegant and handsome white and yellow ensemble or the mysterious black nighttime attire with a mask, or even the hat-wearing look, his various appearances exude a sense of mystery and demonstrate his excellent integration with the character.
Compared to his previous performance in "Who Rules the World," Yang Yang's newly unveiled looks in "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality" appear more three-dimensional and commanding. While maintaining his refined elegance, he also exudes a touch of ruthlessness in black attire, and his combat actions with daggers and short swords possess a distinct martial arts charm. It is undeniable that Yang Yang's performance would received high praise from netizens.
In fact, the performance of the female lead, Gina Jin, has received even more attention and anticipation than Yang Yang's portrayal in "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality." Although Gina Jin is already one of the prominent young actresses of her generation, with her delicate and sweet features, tall figure, and outstanding appearance, her personal growth in acting skills has been widely recognized. Especially her remarkable performance in the summer blockbuster "No More Bets," not only earned her more recognition for her acting abilities but also garnered her a large number of fans, further elevating her popularity.
However, Gina Jin's previous performances in costume dramas were not outstanding. "Legend of Nine Tails Fox" was passable, but in "Song of Youth," whether it was the beauty of the costumes or her command of the ancient style, it appeared quite ordinary. Even her portrayal of Ye Ling'er in "Joy of Life 2" managed to salvage some of the situation, but without the stunning presence in the realm of fantasy and ancient costumes, Gina Jin is clearly not the ideal choice for the female lead in "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality," as envisioned by fans of the original work.
However, with the release of the behind-the-scenes footage and stills, Gina Jin's performance can only be described as a pleasant surprise, a strong response to all doubts. In the footage, Gina Jin showcases various costume designs, emanating an ethereal aura in the classic ancient attire. In the purple attire, she exudes a mature charm with a touch of ancient elegance. The pink attire with a veil adds a sense of mystery. Each outfit is distinct and exquisitely beautiful, surpassing expectations in every aspect.
With both Yang Yang and Gina Jin delivering such exceptional performances, "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality" has undoubtedly gained a high level of competitiveness. Moreover, the drama boasts a team that has created many popular series such as "A Dream of Splendor" and "Ever Night," with the renowned director Yang Yang at the helm. Whether it is the captivating plot or the overall production, there is a high level of assurance.
Furthermore, with the addition of actors like Xu Haiqiao, Zhao Xiaotang, Song Yiren, and Zhao Qing, all possessing exceptional looks, "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality" is undoubtedly a highly anticipated period drama that excels in various aspects, offering both substance and quality.
Based on the recent releases of promotional materials for this drama, the production of the series seems well-planned. With a renowned director leading the project and the support of a talented cast, coupled with Gina Jin's outstanding performance, the future outlook for the premiere of "A Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality" appears even brighter, further fueling anticipation for the full series.
