After a bevy of stills for the past several months, we have a concrete trailer! And it’s english-subbed! I love you production company! While it’s beautifully shot, I’m just not sure I’m into the storyline. Lol. A king who exiles his most trusted minister, only to find him wrongly accused. A little too late.
Formerly known as Si Mei Ren, the period drama is now Song of Phoenix, and will begin filming in January. The production team just releases four characters posters to whet your interest and a press conference today. The story is based on two historical figures in ancient China with Ma Ke taking on the role of minister Qu Yuan and Qiao Zhen Yu portraying the authoritative figure in King Huai of Chu. They were a tragic pair of Emperor-subject and Qu Yuan was exiled several times throughout his life, leaving him with ample time to listen and collect stories from the people, allowing him to express concerns about the corruptions of the state and himself through poetry.
