First stills are released for the upcoming period drama Queen Dugu (独孤皇后) with Chen Xiao and Chen Qiao En as the epic couple in history, known for their dedication to each other, as well as their unified thoughts on frugality and spreading Buddhism. His reign was a period of prosperity with great military power. I have no qualms about Chen Xiao as a romantic emperor, he’s done it before. Expected a routine palace drama so it’s nice to see them outside of the palace in the first set of pictures.
Chen Qiao En. This Empress is known for her kindness, impartiality, and frugality.
Chen Xiao as Emperor Wen of Sui. [Read more about him from Wiki.]
Lol. I thought I was in the wrong photo group when I saw this picture. Where’s his left arm? Am I still stuck in Yumama’s Romance of the Condor Heroes with Yang Guo?!
(which arm was it?)
Directed by Zhang Xiao Zheng (Song of Phoenix) and written by Yang Ji, Queen Dugu plans to have 50 episodes.
