  1. Good going! Thank you. We do need Viki to get the license. I agree. An open mind is best for optimal enjoyment, be it from released trailers or from historical happenings. Crossing my fingers for a not-so-messy or not-so-ridic plot development.
  2. lol. The meditation works! The year did not have to pass by quickly. The BEAUTY(drama) is coming to us in an unexpectedly sudden and surprising new schedule instead. Frankly, I'm not 'prepared now' haha. I'm so in love with The Crowned Clown and Hua Bu Qi, and both sets of OTP, both plots... In 3 days... Thanks. You are right. I thought, maybe we'll be spooked again (and we may, let's see). I could hardly believe it, since the news/rumors I've been reading hinted at a year-end schedule... (but I "believed", as per your ID lol)... Oh yes! If "believed" stated so, it will be so, right? lol. It sure is. Hopefully, there'll be no more changes. And, hopefully, it will turn out to be another awesome YZ project.
  3. Agree. Apparently, this drama from Yu Zheng has been held back for over 4 years...
  4. LOL. I just realized Wei Yingluo is a character so impressed in my mind that I couldn't separate her from the actress. I meant Wu Jinyan, of course. (My apologies, Ms. Wu.)
  5. @lyserose Thanks for the good news If so, that would be awesome! This drama, as good as it looks from the teasers, needs a wider audience. Any mention of which TV station? I hope this is not just a rumor. Me too. Dec 2019 would be a really long wait.Hope it will be sooner.
  6. Hi @ChloeR The drama is actually an original screenplay based on factual historical figures, although Yu Zheng did say (in an interview) he aims to promote the pre-Qin to Qin dynasty, its culture and magnificence through this drama, and is taking reference from an encyclopedia of early Chinese literature, titled "Master Lü's Spring and Autumn Annals" 《吕氏春秋》. Historically, there was a renowned triangular love entanglement, and this is what Yu Zheng is trying to present via Nie Yuan, Wei Yingluo and Mao Zijun. And, as history has it, we know who she ended up marrying, Mao Zijun's character, not Nie Yuan's, although that alone does not mean her true love is with Mao Zijun. I'm curious to see how Yu Zheng will fuse truth and fiction and present another drama of excellent entertainment value. Perhaps? Also, we could already see the explosive chemistry (just from the teaser, and perhaps due to the aftermath of Yanxi) between Nie Yuan and Wei Yingluo. I hope there will be an equally, if not better, 'chemical reaction' lol between Wei Yingluo and Mao Zijun. I do wonder how it would be like if Yu Zheng has chosen Xu Kai (aka Fu Heng) instead of Mao Zijun for this role... haha. True. No one knows Yu Zheng could offer a big hit after all that plagiarism mess he was in. He is really fortunate to emerge from it in good form, and more fortunate to achieve a hit in Yanxi which I don't think anyone had envisioned was forthcoming. But the acclaim is all duly earned, no less due to an excellent cast. My fave is still Empress Fucha . Perhaps also due to the similarity and delayed broadcast of Ruyi. And, if they wanted to satisfy the public and fans, why not bring back Fu Heng with Wei Yingluo? Haha. Yup. My wishful thinking. >_< Nie Yuan, Wei Yingluo and Mao Zijun (and a few others) are all main leads. We'll see how the drama will end for them. I'm keeping an open mind.
  7. Nope. Both vids aren't of any relation to the drama, except for the posters used. These are FMV uploaded by the fan. Me too Hope the wait will be worth it. Yes, they are teaming up again. But er...
  8. I scanned through some C-news and weibo accounts. I can't recall exactly where I read that bit. I barely remember it was from a crew member. If I can find it, I'll post here. Btw, your theory sounds probable. That could be the case for the supporting cast, perhaps. I hope Yu Zheng isn't going to puff up with whatever he has. That would be quite disastrous, IMHO, since there are almost 20 eps of extension. Why should they film that much extra? Esp. with a budget in mind? I think some additional filming is perhaps needed and is not uncommon. It has happened before anyway.
  9. Director Li is going by the 'historical book' as much as she can. That's her aim. Kudos! CR: As tagged

  11. Ah... No wonder there's a delay and a need to reschedule. There's an extension to the number of episodes - from 45 to 63. The whole crew and cast have gone back to filming! Whoa! :0 Src: SARFT Sep & Oct Historical Drama Episode Count Changes ( 广电总局 9-10月古装剧集数变更) ==>>> 《皓镧传》45集变更为63集
  12. According to iQiyi, the delay is due to reshuffling of schedule. The new premiere date will be given separately, at another time.
  13. Thanks. Unfortunately, it's true and it's sad. So many rumors floating online. I find it hard to believe that the premiere could be officially released to be 11-15 and yet, just a day or two prior, it could be canceled and put on hold for a long time. It's rumored to be on hold till late 2019. Argh. I guess the truth will surface some day.
  14. Beautiful characters, settings and costumes.
