Ma Ke’s Song of Phoenix unveils English-Subbed Trailer

After a bevy of stills for the past several months, we have a concrete trailer! And it’s english-subbed! I love you production company! While it’s beautifully shot, I’m just not sure I’m into the storyline. Lol. A king who exiles his most trusted minister, only to find him wrongly accused. A little too late.

Stills:

Ma Ke taking on the role of minister Qu Yuan. Although when I see his flowing black hair, I thought, Sha Jie Jie has an upgrade! Lol!

    But that’s history, so nothing can be done about that.
    And then the country falls and the king becomes a prisoner and dies
    And the minister drowns in a river and is mourned by all citizens (hence the Dragon Boat festival)

      Which is why the production company revealed the trailer today! Cuz it’s the festival!

        I think she just means its sad.

        But yea, I got impatient and emailed Kappy about the trailer and she told how they might be slick and drop it on the festival date. Dead on guest. Lol.

    Eh, there’s a reason why there’s something called 忠言逆耳 or “faithful words grate upon the ear”. Qu Yuan wasn’t the only one in history who suffered this fate. There was also Yue Fei.

    Anyway, I’m gonna wait for a longer trailer. This one is not ideally cut so some scenes make me want to laugh. The costumes are beautiful though.

What do you think?
