Of the three dramas, I’m only interested in the one pictured above…. can you blame me!?
Lol. I’m dying at the implication of this whole Qing drama. With Zhou Xun and Wallace Huo‘s palace drama, Ru Yi, set to draw in viewers, Yu Zheng can’t sit still and let the opportunity pass by his head. He’s producing his own Qing drama, tentatively called Yan Xi’s Conquest (延禧攻略) and inviting some big stars (Qin Lan, Charmaine Sheh, and Nie Yuan) to lay foundation while having his own actress Wu Jin Yan (Zhao Ge) in the leading role. If you have watched Princess Pearls (Huan Zhu Ge Ge), you would recognize the three female characters. HA!
It looks good, very good. The name Zhao Ge (朝歌) comes from the last of a series of cities that served as capital of the Shang dynasty, and later capital of State of Wei [Wiki.] It is a fantasy historical drama retelling the wars between the Shang and Zhou dynasties written and produced by Yu Zheng. Yea, that’s the catch to all the pretty!
I know I’m no longer twelve but the thought of having a snow day off from work tomorrow sends me into cloud 9!
With history experts and a new stylist (He Qian from Huang Xiao Ming’s Xuan Zang) on board, maybe Zhao Ge will be Yu Zheng’s turnaround drama? The drama name Zhao Ge (朝歌) comes from the last of a series of cities that served as capital of the Shang dynasty, and later capital of State of Wei [Wiki.] It is a fantasy historical drama retelling the wars between the Shang and Zhou dynasties written and produced by Yu Zheng.
I just love watching behind-the-scene videos these days. Really gives you another perspective into the work behind all these grand productions.
Another reunion. Well, this one is not new since it started filming in September of 2016. But the of stills were released just this morning and it’s all familiar faces from Yu Zheng‘s company because he’s the….writer. Expect to see Zhang Zhe Han, Li Yi Tong, Wu Jin Yan, Merxat, Bai Yu and more from both Demon Girl and Memory Lost cast members. Zhao Ge (朝歌) is a fantasy historical drama retelling the wars between Shang and Zhou dynasties with a touch of volatile inaccuracies and romances added in by Yumama. Synopsis credit: Me. PUHAHAHAHA.
The second installment of the Beauty series, Beauty at the Crossfires, is set to air in two weeks, on the 14th of this month. Really? Everything is just gonna air during my Christmas vacation ain’t it? Alrighty, let the sleepless nights begin (if…subtitle is available…) Anyways, only Sammul Chan remains from the prequel. How I missed this scholarly lad! He’s been in many Chinese dramas after bidding goodbye to native home in TVB and I don’t remember the last I saw of him (possibly The White Flame with Charmaine Sheh.) Taking the female lead role is the young but talented Shu Chang, who I found adorable in The Lotus Lantern.
