Yu Zheng’s Zhao Ge: Behind-The-Scenes, Interviews with the Crew

With history experts and a new stylist (He Qian from Huang Xiao Ming’s Xuan Zang) on board, maybe Zhao Ge will be Yu Zheng’s turnaround drama? The drama name Zhao Ge (朝歌) comes from the last of a series of cities that served as capital of the Shang dynasty, and later capital of State of Wei [Wiki.] It is a fantasy historical drama retelling the wars between the Shang and Zhou dynasties written and produced by Yu Zheng.

I just love watching behind-the-scene videos these days. Really gives you another perspective into the work behind all these grand productions.

    I feel like Yu Zheng is making these production videos in an attempt to build up his credibility. I have a hard time believing he cares about historical accuracy or quality after watching his past dramas. With that being said, the crew behind the scenes really do deserve acknowledgement. They do they best that they can given Yu Zheng’s predilection for tacky embellishments and contrived gaucherie.

    Wow. I’m pretty impressed with the seriousness he’s taking this production…but then he’s the writer! LOL. That’s a big no-no, this guy writes for fanfictions. And even then, we have great master pieces for fanfictions too. And he’s not in there. XD

    Wu Jin Yan is stunning….

    Ah, very pretty indeed. Sadly, “pretty visuals” are the only thing worth looking at in a Yu Zheng production.

    Zhang Zhe Han though. ?
