Bi Wenjun (毕雯珺) and Wang Ruichang (王瑞昌) were announced as the leads of a “youth driven, inspirational and fantasy series”, “Duo Meng” (Lit. Seizing Dreams 夺梦). The series is a Chinese drama adaptation of the BL novel of the same name by author, Fei Tian Ye Xiang (非天夜翔). As usual, romantic elements between the leads will be transformed into bromance. Filming started on January 19 in Haikou.
The series revolves around “Yu Hao” (played by Bi Wenjun), who was driven to suicide after being falsely accused. Just when he is about to commit suicide, he gets caught up in a dreamland. During his dream, he meets a traveler there, “Zhou Shen” (played by Wang Ruichang), who is known as the “General” and travels back and forth in the dreamland. The two join forces in the dreamland to fight against evil. The “General” helps “Yu Hao” get back his totem and allows him to be reborn.
