Interesting collaboration between these three actors! A new war drama, tentatively called The Advisors Alliance (or Great strategist Sima Yi 军师联盟), is in the making, this time focusing on the legacy left behind by general Sima Yi (Wu Xiu Bo), often portrayed as the rival and villain in the story against Zhuge Liang from the state of Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms period. He starts out as a timid scholar and slowly morphs into a conniving politician. TVB made a silly time-travel adaptation back in 2012 where Kenneth travels back in time with the name Szema Shun against Raymond Lam’s Zhuge Liang. I had a few laughs from that drama. Lol.
Liu Tao will play Sima’s wife, Zhang Chun Hua, well-known as a “prominent politician, general and regent of the state of Cao Wei.” YES! A smart woman is what I like! Pictures of her from the New Year performance.
Janine Chang will play a woman with an ambitious heart Bai Yu Lian.
Tina Tang will play the Queen from Wei State. Ermm…Isn’t she quite young for the role?
Jerry Li Chen as the first Emperor of the state of Cao Wei, Cao Pi, second son of Cao Cao.
The Advisors Alliance is directed by Zhang Yong Xin (Bang Jia Dui Men Gou, Water Margin Boys) and written by Zheng Wan Long with a sketch of 50 episodes. Booting ceremony takes place 2/13/16.
