Palace drama Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) is adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, following the marriage between Qianlong Emperor (Wallace Huo) and Ulanara (Zhou Xun), the Step Empress during the Qing dynasty. I honestly don’t think this is my type of story; countless number of scheming ladies conspiring for and against each other. Lol. The new batch of stills only consists of half of the ladies thrown in the pitting box to fight for Qianlong’s affections. One hell of a lucky role for any male actor.
And it has whopping 90 episodes! I CANNOT. YOU. 1#***3%@#!#@!~~~!!!
There is just about zero tension when supposedly game-changing, top-secret intel is transmitted to both the Japanese and Chinese. Still, the aftermath of Yan Zhi’s involvement forces her to choose between loyalty to her best friend and loyalty to her country.
Our heroine lives a life of privilege: a perfect upper class lady who has the deathly combination of looks, brains, and background. Yan Zhi has no desire to be an agent, despite wanting to be challenged intellectually, but after this little incident, she has little choice. So begins our rookie agent’s journey.
You guys don’t know, having a laptop means so much to me. It’s an extension outside the four walls of this white room. The upcoming republican drama, Rookie Agent Rogue (胭脂) has geared up its promotions, holding multiple press conferences in the past several days since it’s airing on the 27th. At one conference, our poor baby girl is badgered by reporters about her silence on weibo when it comes to Kimi’s passing. She basically tells them that each person has their own way of grieving, and hopes that people will respect the dead, giving space for everyone to mourn and accept the tragic news (really appreciate her costars patting her supportively during the interview). They also reveal new trailers and Li Ying’s song for Rouge OST, which is a very slow, slow song.
The first song of Rookie Agent Rouge (胭脂) is released! Our girl (Zhao Li Ying) looks like she might be turning the attention of her two teachers, taking their apprenticeships to the next level… Her two shifus, one in camp (Mickey Yuan Wen Kang), and one in mission (Lu Yi). Last time when her feelings strayed, we know what happened!! Lol.
