This is one long production! More than half a year to finish filming! Now let the post-production editing begins. Both leads wrote a lengthy appreciation post on their respective weibos to thank the director and staff. The newly released BTS video shows both of them having a blast together as well. I didn’t expect anything less from the mischievous Yang Zi!
The Golden Hairpin (青簪行) is based on the novel written by Ce Ce Qing Han.

I hope you like Tarzan cause Ma Tian Yu is channeling one in this new modern drama! Lol. Yang Zi’s popularity is off the charts so her dramas are airing left and right. Qiyi has subbed most of the trailers and previews down below so you guys can check them out. Will this drama pull me out of my drama slump? I have always preferred my leading ladies to be more jaded than the boys. HA. 😉
