As we have said before. Solid casting. An official trailer was dropped three days ago and here I’m talking about it now. See how fast I am these days with news? Tang Wei‘s drama comeback is Empress of the Ming with actor Zhu Ya Wen, and the story follows their love story of 50 years, first as best friends (grew up together) before they don the royal robes – she as Empress Xiaogongzhang and he as Emperor Xuande, the fifth emperor of the Ming dynasty. You will see plenty of familiar faces in the trailer such as Qiao Zhen Yu, Lay (as Emperor Yingzong of Ming), Yu Hao Ming (Zhu Gaoxu, later the Prince of Han), just to name a few.
And guys, we have another queen running around for next year! Tang Wei confirmed this drama back in October and today the drama has begun filming with its main cast. Male lead is Zhu Ya Wen (Across the Ocean to See You) and supporting cast includes the lovely ladies Sun Xiao Xiao and Deng Jia Jia. Empress of the Ming is an upcoming novel-to-drama adaptation of Lian Jing Zhu Yi’s novel 六朝纪事. It’s a palace drama and she will be portraying the character from youth well into old age, first as best friend (grew up together) with the future emperor before becoming his wise and capable Empress, and their love runs solely for 50 years. From the description, looks like she’s playing Empress Zhang Xiaogongzhang who was the spouse of Emperor Xuande, fourth fifth emperor of the Ming dynasty.
Her last drama is dated back in 2007. I have only known Tang Wei in movieland so it’s a surprise she also started out like many big movie stars back in the days, doing smaller roles in dramaland. The rumor has been floating around for a bit but she attended the press conference yesterday and is confirmed as the female lead of upcoming novel-to-drama adaptation of Lian Jing Zhu Yi’s novel 六朝纪事 known as Empress of the Ming (大明皇妃孙若微传). It’s a palace drama and she will be portraying the character from youth well into old age, first as best friend (grew up together) with the future emperor before becoming his wise and capable Empress, and their love runs solely for 50 years. From the description, looks like she’s playing Empress Zhang who was the first spouse of Emperor Hongxi, fourth emperor of the Ming dynasty. No confirmed male lead yet by Zhu Ya Wen name is up in the air.
Darn April’s Fool!! It sucks when I literally believe everything people say. I mean, they say it so earnestly (such good actors around me). I fell three times today, one of them involved an onscreen pair I really like…dating. LOL! Then my brother called me at 6AM telling me to go bail him out.
Such wonderful and emotional-tugging trailers and posters for a beautiful cast in Sean Lau, Tang Wei, Boran Jing, and Qin Hai Lu. A Tale of Three Cities is a romantic war film featuring the love between two widowed people and how they are forced to leave the city they love and the son they share. Written and directed by a female figure, Mabel Cheung (The Soong Sisters), it is a film not be missed.
