Or known as Beauty Empire as its English title. This project is produced by Yu Zheng (Palace, Beauties of the Emperor) as a sequel to Mei Ren Xin Ji which Ruby Lin played the central character climbing the palace ladder. Set to air in October, a week from today. Must resist the urge.
Set in the Tang Dynasty, the story revolves around the mysterious death of Wu Mei Niang’s daughter. Rumor circulates in the palace, pointing to Queen Wang as the primary suspect since she has no kids and jealousy sparked her into action. Queen Wang’s friends enter the palace to investigate. However, as they uncover more clues, things are starting to look frightening behind the forbidden wall.
Ming Dao plays twin brothers, ex-lover of Queen Wang. As usual, twins never carry the same heart as Ming Chong Yan is an affectionate/mysterious magician while Ming Yi is cold and calculative. Ah! An interesting role for Ming Dao. I hope he acted well in both. Please!
Have a listen to the theme song, “Fallen Flowers” by Li Xiao Lu.
I’m in love with this song…
Alice: Let me just get this off my chest, SO MANY FAMILIAR faces, Yu Zheng.
Zhang Ting, does this woman ever age? I don’t see eye wrinkles even when she smiles! Woman, I’m all ears. Tell me where your youth fountain is! As for her ambitious role, I’m not taken in yet. She looks sweet and fragile, lacking the fierceness to play the powerful queen, very much like Alyssa Chia in the same role in The First Empress.
And the costumes! Beautiful. Makes me want to jump into them and strut down the red carpet like I belong there for centuries. heh!
