My first version of this story by Gu Long was the Taiwanese version with Jimmy Lin and Alec Su, followed by the TVB version with Tony Leung and Hugo Ng, then HK version with Dicky Cheung and Nicholas Tse. In all the versions, the mischievous brother (to be played by Chen Zhe Yuan) who was raised up by a group of villains is almost always the reason to continue watching. He’s unconventional, a prankster, and has tricks up his butt-hole. Lol. The newer version seems to favor the other twin more (played by Hu Yi Tian, he’s the more popular actor of the two), who was raised in a female-only palace, by a cold lady conspiring to see the brothers at each other’s throats. Why? Because their father rejected her and eloped with one of her slave girls! And this is her revenge plan.
The drama will air on CCTV, Qiyi, and Netflix, starting 1/16.
They are definitely going all out to promote this series! Their press conference is impressive! They have limousine lined up and arriving on a red carpet with flashing cameras and a group of excited reporters on the side. The posters hung at the venue indeed have August 2nd imprinted on them so there we have it guys, a date from the production themselves! Moreover, enjoy some live performances of the songs and a long extended trailer. ^__^
I do have a sincere request to throw out there… any volunteers to recap this series for AVV? Please contact me!
Nice!! The song gives me mixed feelings mainly because the beats remind me of the good old days of themesongs back in 2000s, though it hasn’t struck the right spot for me yet. I know many didn’t like Richie Ren‘s performance in The New Adventures of Chor Lau Heung, but I absolutely adored his beautiful love interests in that version. And the themesong sung by him remains in my fond memories and playlist till this day. I just need to replay this song a few more times to really, really, love it.
