Glory of the Tang Dynasty (大唐荣耀) should be called The Legend of Chusen‘s men courting Jing Tian. We have Jing Tian, Shu Chang (also in Chusen), and Wan Qian for the ladies, and Mao Zi Jun, Qin Jun Jie, and Ren Jia Lun for the men. One of them will win the lady’s hand and succeed the throne. If anything, the latest trailer reveals a bloody war path leading to the throne. It is fast-moving and I hope they didn’t use all the action scenes in the trailer alone. XD
- This drama is taking the opposite route of General and I. Very little promotion. The trailer is interesting in that it introduces the veterans and older actors before the younger generation. I wonder if we will be spending a hefty portions with the older generations. It is dramatic and looks good.
- The story follows Consort Shen (played by Jing Tian) who was known as “the wise and true empress” during the Tang Dynasty (and only honored as Empress Dowager after her supposed death), wife to Emperor Daizong of Tang (Li Chu) and mother of Emperor Dezong (Li Kuo). After being captured by rebels during the Anshi Rebellion in 759, she disappeared and was announced as deceased in 805, despite multiple attempts to locate her. During those years, many women came and pretended to be the missing Consort and were all declared as fakes. [Wiki]
- Allen Ren Jia Lun plays Emperor Daizong of Tang, first Emperor of the Tang dynasty to succeed as the eldest child. He served as a general to put down the Anshi Rebellion. His succession to the throne was credited as a result of maneuvers by eunuchs. [Wiki]
- The Glory of the Tang Dynasty will join the ratings game by premiering on January 29th with 60 episodes (LOL).
