YAY! Finally a locked down for a new drama project. It’s adapted from the novel Do You Know? It Ought To Be a Red Flower Amongst The Leaves (知否知否应是绿肥红瘦) or aka The Legend of the Concubine’s Daughter Ming Lan (庶女明兰传) written by Guan Xin Ze Luan. The team behind the production is a strong one and the heroine is quite the leader in her own right as well. The story follows our heroine through her youth, into her adulthood, and well into her marriage life as well. She’s the 6th child of the Sheng household. Though she is an intelligent and beautiful child, she was not loved by her family (her dad, her sisters, her mom dies early.) She has to hide her intelligence and suffers through the years, hoping to avenge for her mom. During this process she will meet many friends and foes, one of which is our male lead, Gu’s second son, Gu Ting Ye. He has helped and mistreated her before, but also the one to witness her sharp wits and lonely soul. After they get married, they will work together as a power couple, managing the new King’s regime as well as harvesting a world of happiness on their own. This is what they have released today about the synopsis.
I haven’t read the novel so for book readers who have, please let me know if it’s good! Now I’m gonna bite my nails for the male lead…. Ma Tian Yu, why you so busy?!
