It is an interesting trailer, one long-shot of Sun Li wandering through the night and visiting memories of the past. The chemistry thermometer is not what I want it to be! Peter Ho while plays the second male lead has more chemistry with Sun Li than her male lead, Chen Xiao. Chen Xiao looks like a younger brother around her. Lol.
UPDATE: Forgot to add that the actors will be using their real voices. No dubbing!
Synopsis: Sun Li as Zhou Ying. She wanders jianghu for a time before transforming her life with a chance encounter. She’s sold by her adopted father into the Shen family as a servant. When she tries to run away from them, she gets into the chair sedan of Wu Pin (Peter Ho) and earns their trust through her witty business moves. When Shen Xing Yi (Chen Xiao) suspects Wu Pin in the murder of his elder brother, he injures him, which leads to the marriage between Zhou Ying and Wu Pin, in an effort to dispel his unlucky “air.” After Wu Pin dies and the family weaving business falters, Zhou Ying is the one to maneuver the whole clan and gets locked up in the process by the angry foreigners. After she is released, Zhou Ying rekindles her working spirit to rebuild the Wu weaving business and becomes the richest family in the area. [Credit: [email protected]]

Myolie Wu. An interesting mix of actresses from HK and China.
