I still don’t quite believe this news even if many news portal came out with the same thing the past several days. It’s hard to imagine Vic Zhou along the two rising starlets, Hu Bing Qing and Chen Yao, right? Both are both in the 90s and more than 10 years younger than him (92’er and 94’er). Doesn’t help that they look much younger and doesn’t have much flesh on their bodies, Lol. Booting ceremony took place a few days ago and Vic Zhou wasn’t present because….he accompanied his wife to the doctor. Got it? Youngest member of F4 is now the first father of all! Congratulations Vic! The baby will be so cute!

As always, I try my best with translating the synopsis for you peeps (don’t expect 100% accuracy) and here’s what I came up with after laboring to understand the novel: Gui Zhong Mei Ren (柜中美人) is a drama adaptation of the novel (胭脂醉) written by Shui He. Hu Bing Qing as Qing Feng and Chen Yao as Fei Luan; former is a yellow-throated marten and the latter is a fox spirit. Docile Fei Luan is taken in by Qing Feng’s mother and both grew up to be a pair of close sisters. Vic Zhou will play the new emperor of the Tang Dynasty and Chen Ruo Xuan will play the gentle scholar preparing for the Imperial Examination. The current emperor at the time neglects his duties and spends time playing and frolicking with the ladies. He also has a habit of hunting foxes late at night. With their declining population and innocent deaths rising, the enraged Fox Clan wages a war against the royal family. They reserve a special pearl that boosts power and beauty to the consumer, which is stolen by the pair of sisters and split between them. They enter the Palace as dancers to fulfill the mission of killing the Emperor. But before the sisters could kill the emperor, he’s abruptly assassinated, and the throne goes to Vic Zhou’s character (after the Crown Prince is killed off too). It’s love at first sight for Qing Feng with the new handsome king, but his eyes follow the demure and innocent personality of Fei Luan. To keep the King for herself, Qing Feng becomes a matchmaker for Fei Luan and the scholar, and they do end up together as a couple. Obstacles arise left and right, testing Qing Feng and the King’s love. She’s sent to work as a palace maid before being freed and the King after dictating the Crown Prince, also disappears. Turns out he left his throne to live in peace with Qing Feng in the end. [Happily Ever After.]
Keep in mind that with any drama adaptation, the story will change.
