Ni Ni up to romance Chen Kun in Rise of the Phoenixes

Rumor around the mill is that film actress, Ni Ni, is the female lead opposite Chen Kun in the upcoming big period drama, Rise of the Phoenixes (凰权弈天下). The official weibo has confirmed Chen Kun months ago but not Ni Ni yet. Rise of the Phoenixes is based on the novel Huang Quan written by Tian Xia Gui Yuan (pen name). Our male lead is a scheming sixth prince Ning Yi (Chen Kun). Female lead, Feng Zhi Wei (Ni Ni), is an illegitimate daughter of a kingdom who is later framed for a crime and evicted, which leads to her cross-dressing into a famous academy and shines with her keen intelligence. I haven’t checked out the novel yet but it sounds pretty awesome based on the reviews that our leads are both smart, cunning people, sometimes cruel in order to obtain what they want.

    I’d love to see this happen. Chen Kun with Ni Ni. Who would have thought?

    I haven’t watched Ni Ni’s works. How’s her acting?

    Chen Kun! Beautiful, beautiful man. Solid actor. I’m happy that he’ll be in a drama – more episodes = more Chen Kun. It has been a while since his last foray into TV land.

    Ni Ni is gorgeous although i’my not familiar with her work. Hopefully we’ll get interesting characters and stay away from the typical kind, sweet, perfect heroine.

    Well, finally! i thought I’ll never see his hot self on my screen. My google fu is horrible, so i can never find his movies before i forget about them. 🙁 A Chen Kun drama is exactly what I need.
