What? You think Yumama is done with Jin Yong’s novels? Nope. He’s here to rebuild the wuxia world. The young actor, Chen Xiao, at 25, has been in numerous Yu Zheng’s productions – Gong 3, The Swordsman, and as the protagonist in Female Prime Minister. Am I complaining? – too many remakes already – but I approve of him, mainly because this lad looks great in period dramas as compared to modern outfits, where he’s just another pretty boy with Asian bangs.
Or known as Beauty Empire as its English title. This project is produced by Yu Zheng (Palace, Beauties of the Emperor) as a sequel to Mei Ren Xin Ji which Ruby Lin played the central character climbing the palace ladder. Set to air in October, a week from today. Must resist the urge.
