Song of Youth: Female-centric drama with Bai Lu, Jin Chen, and Wang Yi Zhe begins filming

Yumama is back and this time, he decided to go historical comedy drama. Song of Youth (玉楼春) is a female-centric drama led by Bai Lu, alongside with Jin Chen, Zheng Qiu Hong, Huang Xin Yao, and special guest appearances in Yang Rong, Qiao Xin, and more to be announced. The story takes place during the Ming Dynasty and Bai Lu plays a miss from an official family. Her father is accused of corruption and she becomes a fallen miss after he’s executed. To make a living, she begins learning drama at a local street performance house (?), where she meets a rich grandson played by Wang Yi Zhe. He, of course, falls in love at first sight with her. And to clear her dad’s name, she disguises as a male to take the imperial test (?) But because she’s a female, she naturally fails the section where they examine your body…. But no worries, her rich admirer sneaks in to help and clear her father’s name. Once his family gets a wind of her identity/status, they try to break up the two. He doesn’t give up while she works hard on improving herself, and within a year, is able to become the top female merchant in the country. She then decides to marry into Wang Yi Zhe’s family when they are struggling. She helps stabilize the family and business, only to find out that her father-in-law is the man behind her dad’s demise and he is the one deep in corruption. Clear-headed and fair, our heroine chooses justice in the end. What do they called that? 大義滅親!

And that’s it. The synopsis reveals the whole drama. xD

    The drama sounds like a mix of that drama with TangYan & Li Yifeng and the other drama with Sun Li and Chen Xiao.

    Why is the photoshopping on the posters so bad. The second one looks like they just cut off the actors photoshopped faces and plastered them in. I wish they used the Chinese photographer who is famous for creating images of actors from the ancient period really well.

    Female-centric but the storyline need to be update to reflect that. I like that the leading man is a nobody (at the moment) making use viewer not rooting for a happy ending at the end.
