Of the three dramas, I’m only interested in the one pictured above…. can you blame me!?
=======> ♦ First trailer is revealed for Chen Kun and Ni Ni‘s ancient drama, The Rise of Phoenixes, detailing the rise to power of both of our leads (yay!). The teaser shows Chen Kun’s character being mistaken as the mastermind behind Ni Ni’s mother’s death, and we see him struggling to get it across to Ni Ni in the rain. Alas, he rises to the throne and promises to find her. The looks on their faces during that hug between the white curtain. Oof!
=======> ♦ Yu Zheng’s latest drama Story of Yan Xi’s Palace is his answer to Ru Yi’s Royal Love in The Palace. You know he gotta have a paw in everything. Female lead is his own youngin Wu Jin Yan (Zhao Ge) while the bigger and more familiar stars (Qin Lan, Charmaine Sheh, and Nie Yuan) lay the foundation. Doesn’t look like a Yu Zheng’s production because of the muted colors so we have his new costume designer to thank for. Lol.
=======> ♦ I really don’t know what to think of this drama, it feels like they are playing dress-up. The strange name Chong Er’s Preach doesn’t help and the trailer is bloody dramatic. Zhang Yi Shan, what have you gotten yourself into? Other stars include Wang Long Hua, Zhang Han Yun, and Purba Rgyal.
