You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.
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 don’t know what to think about this series…. the countless ladies and wives fighting and scheming for one man for many, many cycles of new faces. 90 episodes isn’t appealing either but there is always an audience for this type of dramas so there’s that.
They have been filming for about three/four weeks, but with enough footage to tease us every now and then. Leading male character is played by Chen Fei Yu (Secret Fruit). His female lead is rising actress Song Yi Ren (Sword Master, At Cafe 6, Time To Love). Ever Night (将夜) is the drama adaptation of fantasy novel written by Mao Ni.
That’s one heck of a long project. I can’t imagine filming for something for that long, you’ll get so attached to playing the given character! On the other hand, they used the production created sets well….now let’s hope it a ratings success for everyone’s effort! Highness Qianlong Emperor Wallace Huo and his OTP in Zhou Xun as Ru Yi and the depiction of their love story over….many dead bodies obstacles. Even best friend Chen Kun congratulated Zhou Xun on weibo, it’s been that long. 90 episodes of epic prettiness and show-off in claws and green monsters in the harem! I know Miss Peach and Coralie have already signed up to watch! Are you in that list? Lol.
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%@#!#@!~~~!!!
Wallace has a kid coming, how will he manage the busy and very beautiful harem of flirty looks? Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) drops its first batch of stills a few hours ago, including only 6 lovely ladies of about 23. Palace intrigues were never this bountiful in beauty before. Shaving your head is worth it, Wally!
Holy Krap. The supporting female actresses are the bomb. So many beautiful faces for King Wallace Huo to romance and for Lady Zhou Xun to contend with (..not possible?) Oh heck, we know Ruby Lin wins hands down at the end of the day (heh.) Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿傳) focuses on the fierce harem battles during the reign of Qianlong Emperor and is ready to start production. Wouldn’t it be funny if Princess Zi Wei (and Huan Zhu Ge Ge) appear as cameo? Oy, the twisty twist twist. LOL.
