Prince of Wolf - 狼王子
He’ll follow the girl of his dreams anywhere. But when you’re a man raised by wolves, looking for love is complicated.
Prince of Wolf - 狼王子Alternate titles: 狼王子
Derek Chang (also known as Derek Zhang and Zhang Xuan Rui from Stay With Me) and Taiwanese sensation Amber An star in a romance that puts a modern twist on the classic tale of a man raised by beasts. When a young boy is lost in the forest and raised by the wolves, he grows up to be their protector. When he meets and falls in love with the first woman he has ever seen, he returns to the modern world to find love. The jungle animals, however, have no fury like the evil of civilized people.
Du Zhe Ming (Derek Chang) is the prince of wolves. As a child, he got lost in the forest and saved the life of a female wolf. The Wolf King rewarded him by letting him stay with the tribe. Now grown up, Du Zhe Ming has the intelligence of a human and the instincts of an animal. He is the wolf pack’s deadliest hunter and fiercest protector. Tian Mi Mi (Amber An) is an amateur photographer who goes to Taiwan’s scenic Wolf Mountain for some wildlife photography. When she falls into a valley, it is the Wolf prince who saves Mi Mi’s life. While he is fascinated by the woman and brings her back to his cave, Mi Mi nonetheless has to return to the human world. Now convinced that she is his soul mate, Du Zhe Ming follows Mi Mi back into human society. As the beast royal will soon learn, however, civilized society isn’t a very safe place to be a wolf prince.
Prince of Wolf is directed by Liu En Jie. The drama first aired on TTV on July 3, 2016 after the finale of Refresh Man. The drama ran for 18 episodes, with one bonus episode culminating things on November 6, 2016. The series was a pleasant surprise for its fans (and producers), holding its own in the ratings while competing with hotly anticipated hits on rival channels Uncontrollably Fond and Jealousy Incarnate, both of which aired in the same time frame. And while the other series starred many established actors, Prince of Wolf found success in spite of Derek Chang’s relative inexperience (having only worked in small support roles prior to landing the leading role here). In addition to its less-than-subtle homage to Tarzan, the drama also earned attention for using adorable Siberian huskies as the trusty “wolves” that accompany the prince. The series did net some negative criticism due to its often unrealistic portrayal of jungle life, but it also won several awards and was near-universally praised for its breathtaking view of the Taiwanese landscape, an island that is home to 286 mountain summits that are over 3,000 meters high.
