Lord have mercy! Gone is the HXM anti for last decade in me and a clean new slate (with many dirty thoughts!)
Ruby Lin is LOVELY and I let out a sigh of relief… she's playing mother of the children of a YueFei that looks like Huang Fking XiaoMing instead of a 16 yo bimboprincess. Who freaken cares about doubling their age just to grow old(er) with YueFei, HXM or no HXM. Age appropriate gorgeousness is sooooooo much easier on eyes. And I can imagine the job is much easier on Ruby herself, screaming OTP! just with hand holding.
Shishi is in it playing a minor role as a blind wifey to one of the men
*AHHHHHHH* again so much better! SS' appearance fits dutiful virtuous gentle serene lady to a tee. Wild Wolf girl, NOPE!
This is a rising starlet popping up everywhere in bit roles. Plastic, but I think she's v pretty, so I don't mind her much in a suitable role. She'll be playing a girl setting her eyes on the married general Yue, see! And who can blame her, really.
Another lady wanting a place in General Yue's life (and some gratuitous handtouching: she's described as a loyal, secret admirer, putting Gen. Yue higher than her own being. Ｉ think she's some medicine lady/gentle nurse.
*SIGHHHH* I've never seen XiaoMing soooo PERFECT! I need a cold shower and it's a cold and miserably freezing night in my woods! brrrrr
Seriously, this drama has lil hope to be honestly awesome. It's more a HK production in disguise and the peeps behind it, Stanley Tong is a soso B HKaction flick director. I have never liked anything he's attached. PD is ok, but not close to PD Li fr TR. I was holding all hope on the other producer attached, PD Han, but from the look of fictional characters and fabrications of history, this will be more shoujo fanfic. I dun mind it, but there seems to be an insurmountable cultural barrier whenever HK producers r crossing over to realdeal CN historicals.
In fear this is too much pretty in a post.
Here, lets 'spice' it up a bit.
The most repeated comment, I quote/paraphrase: This is just a trolling vid, no? This can NO WAY be an official long trailer (please say no, take it back!)
Kevin….sigh…. I'll turn a blind eye. It's good you have at least 2 uncoming things that wont burst me a vein.
Need an GOOD eye rinse?
Have a ChenKun as the same Fan Li and Sonjia as XiShi:
Or even better yet: BL fanvid with a Chen DiaoMing's Guo Jian, King of Yue, ie KC's char. *sigh* KC, it's C serious drama career suicide to do a role CDM has touched. The drama is The Great Revival, it has HuJun as the other hegemon King FuChai of Wu. The hotness!
It said XiShi (ie one of the 4 Great Beauties) but it's really FanLi. Really. *need happy thoughts and vision of ChenKun and HuJun now, huh?!?!*
muahahahahaha! Sorry for the trolling!
