Dugu Huang Hou (Empress Gugu) or The Unique China Queen (独孤皇后) production team officially confirmed Chen Qiao En as their leading lady on 12/21. I really don’t understand the need of another version of the same story. Hu Bing Qing and Zhang Dan Feng’s The Legend of Dogu is another version of the same historical figure, retelling the unique love story between Emperor Wen and his Empress Dugu, a promise that he won’t let another woman have his kids. It’s romantic and all, but do I really want to see it twice?
This Empress is known for her kindness, impartiality, and frugality. Yep, all the ingredients of our usual pot of heroine recipe. Lol.
Chen Xiao is rumored to be Chen Qiao En‘s male lead.
