Who is the Final Boss in “Lost Love in Times”?

Who is the Final Boss in “Lost Love in Times”?

Mainland Chinese drama Lost Love in Times <醉玲珑> stars William Chan (陳偉霆) and Cecilia Liu Shishi (刘诗诗), who respectively plays Fourth Prince Yuan Ling and the sorceress Feng Qingchen. The two fall in love and get married, but their marriage gets plagued by a political war. Yuan Ling eventually succeeds to the throne of Western Wei, but his younger brother, Seventh Prince Yuan Zhan (Xu Haiqiao 徐海乔), is willing to do anything to take it from him.

Desperately, Feng Qingchen activates a spell to go back in time and change history, where the threat of Yuan Zhan ceases to exist. But the new alternate timeline she creates is an entire new world, where Yuan Ling is no longer in love with her. Yuan Zhan is no longer the final boss, and a third prince, the Ninth Prince Yuan Ming (Ryan Zhang He 张赫), is eyeing the throne. Together with Third Prince Yuan Ji, Yuan Ming secretly plans his traps in the background. Yuan Ling and Yuan Zhan remain to be at odds, as they both fall in love with Qingchen. As Yuan Ming is about to execute his plan, it foils—another final boss has his eyes set on the powerful kingdom.

“Green Leaf” Actor Ryan Zhang Takes Spotlight

32-year-old Ryan Zhang, though known to be one of China’s “green leaf” actors, shines as the despicable villain in Lost Love in Times. He has shown his acting flexible with the different roles through his career, including the the noble Ling Yu in Eternal Love <微微一笑很倾城> and the charismatic Yin Shaoxiang in Love O2O <微微一笑很倾城>. Though he may not be getting any leading roles in high-profile productions, his exposure rate and acting talent will guarantee him a bright future.

“Lost Love in Times” Play with the Loopholes in China’s Time-Traveling Ban

“Lost Love in Times” Play with the Loopholes in China’s Time-Traveling Ban



Chinese fantasy television drama Lost Love in Times <醉玲珑> is an adaptation of the popular fantasy novel Drunken Exquisiteness, but not really. Other than the characters and the time-travel theme, not much of the original story wass kept for the TV show.

Drunken Exquisiteness, written by Chinese American writer Fourteen Nights (十四夜), tells the story of a present-day woman who travels back in time to the Western Wei Kingdom in the mid-500’s, and falls in love with a prince.

The backbone of the story is quite similar to Tong Hua’s (桐华) time-traveling epic Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步惊心>, which was adapted into the uber-successful television drama Scarlet Heart in 2011. The show was one of the main reasons why China decided to put a ban on studios making time-traveling television shows and movies. Authorities felt the genre’s popularity was going too far, and that its distortion of facts was disrespectful to China’s rich history.

Lost Love in Times, however, managed to pass through all the restrictions.

To avoid the ban, the new TV show, which stars Cecilia Liu Shishi (刘诗诗) as the sorceress Feng Qingchen and William Chan (陳偉霆) as the fourth prince Yuan Ling, altered the time-traveling aspect of the show so it would not alter major events in real history. As a result, not much of the original story of Drunken Exquisiteness was kept. The show’s fantasy setting also sets it apart  from other “historical” dramas.

Lost Love in Times follows the sorceress and master healer Feng Qingchen on a journey where she consistently rewinds time to help Prince Yuan Ling ascend to the throne of Western Wei. She uses this skill to prevent Yuan Ling’s brothers from taking the throne, changing history over and over again.

From falling in love with a prince, to the prince fighting the throne from her brothers, the new story is actually quite similar to Scarlet Heart, which Cecilia also starred in. But while Scarlet Heart had a more realistic to the storyline, Lost Love in Times takes the responsibility of crafting a political world in a fantasy setting.

Lost Love in Time premiered July 13, 2017. The final episodes will air on July 28, 2017.
