Broadcast network CCTV-8’s 50-part TV series The Myth is fast becoming the most talked about drama on Mainland Chinese television. It is a remake of the 2005 Hong Kong film of the same name, which starred Jackie Chan as the time-travelling hero and Kim Hee-sun as his beloved. According to Sofres, The Myth premiered with a two-day average viewership of as high as 3.13%, and pulled in 4.13% for one episode, making it CCTV-8’s highest rated new year drama ever.

Ending theme song: 美丽的神话 by Hu Ge and Bai Bing:

Leave this playing as you read on! 😉


Hu Ge as General Meng Yi (below) and his modern day self, Yi Xiao Chuan (above) / 胡歌饰演的蒙毅将军与易小川

Bai Bing as Princess Yu Shu / 白冰扮演玉漱公主‎

When I first saw the female lead, it immediately struck me how much she resembles Kim Hee Sun. Indeed, she was handpicked by Jackie Chan, the producer of The Myth (the drama), who starred opposite Kim in the movie version.
