Vic Zhou leads costume display in Gui Zhong Mei Ren

Lol! The timing couldn’t be any perfect. Just when I (and you too?) were wondering whether it’s a casting gimmick since we haven’t seen any hint of the male lead on set, the production drops an onslaught of stills of Vic Zhou looking his most comfortable self – awkward in front of the camera. Lol. I really can’t imagine standing there and smiling for the camera repeatedly for every single costume. Kudos to your patience!

Folks, prepare for the picture spam!

Stills:

The synopsis of the novel that I translated a few months ago: 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. DO NOT TAKE OUT AS ACCURACY IS NOT 100%]

    The posters are very artistic and suitable for framing Story is somewhat similar to Stephen Chow’s The Mermaid.

    This actually looks very interesting especially since the story has a happy ending!
    Apparently this is the sequel to Legend of Green Hills Fox!
    The posters look great and so do the leads! 🙂

      Apparently the thing that the girls split between them is the magical fruit that everyone was after in Fox Legend? Not sure about the details…

        there were a lot of talks at the time this drama was first mentioned. HNTV was trying to link the two dramas as a franchise… but this one stands on its own, based on the novel, and fans pointed out that hntv should stop the sequel/prequel nonsense. lols.

    OK, this is funny. The main ladies of this drama are two gorgeous young women but Vic is the one parading in 10 different outfits/poses/hairstyles.
    Not that I am complaining, but it’s just weird … :)))

      I’m guessing it’s because the ladies are new unknowns while Vic is the star attraction.

      Yep. They have been letting the anticipation reel in fangirls. Lol.

    Sorry, but I will probably give this a miss. Vic Zhou….well, he’s handsome and with that dead set eyes of his, perfect to be a model. Unfortunately, he choose acting and frankly, I don’t think he should act. Sorry to all Vic Zhou fans out there. This is just my personal opinion.

    Vic! He really pass well in ancient styles! Ken couldn’t hide his modern looks back then, lets wait if Jerry Yan will join in costume play next! 😀 The lady in green looks great, I think she’s the main character, finally at last I see an attractive actress!
