    So many pretty pictures..I just loove the coloring of the picture with Wu Jin Yan as Daji…the red dress in the autumn scenery..beautiful…
    Rofl…I really had to do a double take when I saw Bao Jian Feng´s costume..really how does he move..how does this big crown stay on his head and moreover doesn´t get entangled with this ehm..enormous “shoulder gear”..? O_O really what is this called..

      Yes, she didn’t stand out before but Wu Jin Yan definitely did in here. Very pretty in simple styling.

      ROFL still at Bao Jian Feng’s shoulder thingy! XD

      I wasn’t sure which part is the shoulder gear and which part is the crown. I like the red dress too, but dang, I think it is really really long though. It is pretty when it’s long…but If I remember correctly even the fancy XLN dress did not go all the way down near the horse hoof, maybe the horse was tilting? I just wonder if it is safe to walk in it when she’s off the horse.

      Wow! That is the most inventive costume accessory that I have seen. Is the metal supposed to be white gold? That would weigh a ton.

    Well it doesn’t look that colorful xD Or isn’t Yumama the producer?

    Anyway I broke out laughing when I saw that King Zhou of Shang…. poor him what is he even wearing lol That shouldn’t be allowed hahaha OMG I just can’t… this is killing me xD

    That King’s robe… completely ridiculous omg! Speechless at how ugly it’s lmao!
    Wu Jin Yan looks so pretty! The costume is so simple with a striking red! Love the background too!!!

    I bet there’s a sob story behind how the King of Shang became a tyranny. He was an ambitious young man who only wanted to dethrone his merciless father, until he took on the cursed shoulder gear himself… Jokes aside, those stills are so pretty they could be posters in their own right.

    Prob not gonna watch, but I LOVE Wu Jin Yan’s poster! The autumn coloring and the horse, and the beautiful pop of red from her (she’s beautiful too) in her flowing, simple yet elegant drapey dress. I love how her dress sort of just flows around the horse (Although I wonder if the horse would get tangled up with those drapes wrapped around its legs).

    Hope this one will be worth of watching. Watching all 47 episodes of Princess of Lan Ling King was totally regretful for me. Love the first 13 ep of it since it’s funny and that she love Lan ling king but after that everything got little “disgusting” for me. I cross my hand that the female lead would always love Lan ling king and spend many loving times together even after memories lost but it turn out totally different which totally disappoint me. Lan ling king have love ONLY her and no other since their childhood. Don’t know why the director call it princess OF Lan ling king and made the closing theme song with Lan Ling King & female lead if at the end she chosen another man(Yu Weng Yong). I cried so much that my eyes got so swollen at ep 47 for Lan Ling Wang who still love only her, promised her he won’t fight no more, wanted to protect her, wanted her to be happy that he would do anything for her but since she love another man, he send her to that man & made that man swear and promise that he will love only her die after crying that his heart is only her in it but she loved another man and drink the poison. You will probably understand me if you watch 45 to 47 at the least. OMG I can’t believe how much I cried for Lan ling king like i totally feel it for him.

    So many remakes of this story, the same for Journey to the West. >.< I remember there's one remake with Wang Li Kun that hasn't been on air yet? I watched Sammul Chan's version which was out on 2015. What's with this remake after remake trend?

    Is Li Yi Tong actually good? I haven’t seen her in anything but she seems to be in everything…

      I didn’t watch enough of Demon Girl to form an opinion of her acting yet but she’s pretty cute and charming so far in the promotional stills.

    I dropped by the Virtual site by accident, and saw these amazing stills. They should be put on display in an art museum. The settings are beautiful and artistic. I will have to keep an eye on the TV drama calendar. I must see Bao Jian Feng/King Zhou of Shang parade in this magnificent costume.
