Wu Jin Yan and Xu Kai cook up a Royal Feast in new historical foodie drama
Royal Feast (尚食) reunites Xu Kai and Wu Jin Yan in historical foodie drama! Quite a lot of food-centered dramas lately. We follow our heroine as she enters the forbidden palace as a lowly maid in the royal kitchen and works her way up. It is set during Yongle’s years of the Ming dynasty as the emperor decides to open up the food bureau for female recruits. Our female lead is accepted, along with two others – both with different background, one used to be a beggar, and the other one regarded as a genius cook. The three of them work together to support and create fresh new dishes, incorporating medicines and savored flavors of the past. However, as our female lead rises up the ladder, the true meaning of ‘food’ hits her; it’s a bridge connecting people and different cultures. She gives up competing in prestigious food competitions and leaves the palace to join the common people in spreading the love for Chinese cuisines.
Zhang Nan and Sun Yi Han as dual female leads in Couple of Mirrors
Couple of Mirrors (双镜) follows the lives of our colorful dual female leads in Zhang Nan and Sun Yi Han. Not much to say about the synopsis cause I think one line is enough to grab your attention: The unlikely friendship emerges between a famous author with a cheating husband and a cold-blooded assassin posing as a photographer and how they stand by each other side facing the incoming storms.
It’s about time us ladies have interesting characters/backgrounds!

Zhu Xu Dan, Xiong Zi Qi lead webdrama Painting Heart Expert
Hua Xin Shi or Painting Heart Expert/Teacher (working title) (画心师) is an upcoming webdrama produced by Sohu with the villain Zhu Xu Dan from Ten Miles of Peach Blossom and SpeXial’s Xiong Zi Qi (My Mr. Mermaid) as leads. I’m gonna attempt to translate the synopsis but it’s way over my head in terms of understanding. So there are these two opposing academies, one collects good, pure feelings/sentiments, while the other one feeds on people’s impure thoughts. Sounds like the good old days of good versus evil, and justice will prevail in the end.
