The Parting of the Orchid and Cang or simply known as Demon King (Cang Lan Jue) is one of the upcoming donghua from iQIYI this year that will make our hearts run faster than usual with all the romance antics it promises to bring to the table. After all, we rarely get a romance donghua that seems to be on the same level as Psychic Princess, The Demonic King Who Chases His Wife, and Cinderella Chef; now with Cang Lan Jue, this is a romance donghua that we can all look forward this summer.
Cang Lan Jue (Demon King) Donghua Announcement
While the series hasn’t been listed as part of the original 2022 donghua lineup of iQIYI which had been revealed last year, it was in early February this 2022 that a promotional video for the Cang Lan Jue donghua adaptation was unveiled which surprises the fans of its source material.
The first PV for the Cang Lan Jue donghua adaptation was unveiled on its official Weibo page. It features the bitter-sweet story of a demon king and his mortal enemy, but when one was unsealed, and the other was reincarnated, who would ever think they’d fall in love unexpectedly? However, there’s a destiny that must be fulfilled, hence, Cang Lan Jue is a story of love against destiny as if each one of them played a special role in each other’s fate.
An immortal girl from the Po Xin tribe made her tribe defeated by Lord Demon, Dongfang Qingcang. She was reborn ten thousand years later as a humble immortal from the Heavenly Tribe, Xiao Lanhua (Little Orchid). Unknowingly, Lan Hua revived Dongfang Qingcang, his mortal enemy, who was trapped in the Hao Tian Tower. To regain his freedom, Dongfang Qingcang wants to sacrifice Xiao Lanhua’s immortal soul to unleash the curse placed on his body. In the process, the heartless demon falls in love with the sweet adorable young fairy.Source: Mundo Donghua
