Fans of the popular BL novel and donghua (Chinese animated series), “Heaven Official’s Blessing” (天官赐福) or “Tian Guan Ci Fu”, were delighted when it was announced Luhan (鹿晗) is singing the theme song for the second season of the series. The name of the song is called, “Lian Cheng Ci” (怜城辞). The “Lian” in the song name is the same character as the “Lian” in “Xie Lian’s” (谢怜) name.
Ever since the live action adaptation for “Heaven Official’s Blessing” was announced, many fans have called for Luhan to be casted as one of the male leads, “Xie Lian”, saying that he is very suitable for the role. The comparisons stem from Luhan’s costume and styling from his 2017 drama, “Fighter of the Destiny” (择天记), which many people say resembles “Xie Lian”. Seeing Luhan singing the theme song for the donghua got fans excited and thinking whether their dream casting is coming into fruition.
The song was released on January 4 and Luhan also promoted the song on his Weibo account. He said, “Tian Guan Ci Fu, there are no taboos! Happy New Year, everyone!”.
