Following the success of its animated donghua series, Heaven’s Official Blessing, Tian Guan Ci Fu officially announced its Drama Adaptation with The Untamed Director, Chen Jia Lin appointed to head the production series once again. The BL novel adaption is also written by the author for The Untamed, Mo Xiang Tong Xiu.

According to the Sina Entertainment Weibo page, filming will be expected to commerce in the second half of 2021. The male leads for the drama have yet to be announced.
Will Tian Guan Ci Fu be an even more difficult project than “The Untamed”?
Some believe that the adaptation of the script for Tian Guan Ci Fu would be more difficult to turn into a live adaptation drama. This is because Heaven’s Official Blessing tells a story about a world where humans, ghosts and gods coexist. This would requires more powerful special effects as support.
Additionally, more background scenes may be needed since the world of ghosts, humans and gods are quite different.
Who will be the male leads for Tian Guan Ci Fu?
So far the internet has been hotly discussing who may be the male leads for the drama. Though no official announcements have been made, rumours have been intensifying with some citing Cheng Yi, Luhan and Hou Minghao among the rumoured contenders for the male leads.
However, these rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt as they may be only “fan favourite picks” for who the fans of the series themselves deem suitable to take on these roles.
Unsurprisingly, many male actors have also been rumoured to audition for the roles of the male leads in the show. This is not astonishing given the sensational reception of The Untamed. Many actors are also aspiring the level of fame and success achieved by Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo both internationally and domestically.
Thankfully, many have faith in Chen Jia Lin’s casting criteria and it will not be long until the official male leads will be announced for the show, since the casting will begin in Q2 of 2021!
