The synopsis reminds me quite a bit of Schemes of a Beauty. The production looks epic from the trailer, so let's see if the actual drama lives up to expectations. Honestly, the Han Dynasty of China just is one of the most interesting dynasties to see in dramas.

The Han Dynasty has always been one of my favourite time periods to watch (C-dramas) and read about. 
The production values seem quite high too. I'll reserve judgement on the acting until I see the full production. :)

Niki Chow and Richie Ren attended the press conference of new drama The Virtuous Queen of Han. Niki's boyfriend Jeremy Jones is also part of the cast, but he was absent from the event, asked if she was okay with that? She said: "The company makes the arrangements. I knew today I'm here with Richie to promote the theme song, Raymond Lam is part of the cast too and he didn't attend." Niki disclosed she has three husbands in the series, but Jeremy isn't any of the three. Reporters teased as long as she has him in real life, then that's enough. Niki laughed: "Haha, not related!" As Niki's boss, Richie Ren joked he didn't know Niki and Jeremy were dating, but he'll make adjustments to the arrangements and coordinate appropriately in private.

Awesome cast. Will definitely watch this for Raymond Lam. Have always loved period dramas of China, especially in the Qing and Han dynasties.

I finished watching the first three episodes of this drama and I think it is pretty good. However, I feel like some chemistry is lacking between Raymond and Luo Dan… maybe because there was no courtship involved and they are just together. As of now, I feel more chemistry from Luo Dan and Zheng Xi more… and I felt Niki and Luo Dan’s characters are the most outstanding so far… Hope this drama will keep it up!

Just watched the first 2 episodes. So far so good. I like how there is a cliffhanger at the end of the episodes. I feel sorry for Duan Hong already though...knowing how it will turn out.

This drama is addicting. It has its flaws (being virtuous doesn't mean Wei Zifu has to become a Mary Sue, and sometimes the story goes in circles), but I'm always eager to watch the next episode.It reminds me of when I absolutely loved to watch “Beyond the Realm of Conscience" (also written by Mei Xiaoqing) despite all the flaws.

Raymond Lam’s unexplained absence from celebratory partyThe actor is reportedly displeased that media attention has been diverted to his drama co-star Niki Chow
Niki Chow, Raymond Lam

Popular Chinese drama The Virtuous Queen of Han held a celebratory dinner last Tuesday, where lead actress Niki Chow and boyfriend, Chinese actor Jeremy Tsui made a joint-appearance. Lead actor Raymond Lam, however, was missing from the party, even though he was supposed to be in the list of attendees.
While both the director and producer said that they would need to “find out” the reason for Raymond’s unexplained absence, the crew claimed that it was the first time the actor failed to turn up for an event without prior notification.
“We only found out that he’s not coming slightly before the reporters. He had promised to make it if his schedule allows, even saying that he would stay till the end of the event,” a member of the staff added.
According to Hong Kong media, Raymond and Niki are currently on bad terms, after vying to perform the drama’s theme song previously.
Although it was initially stated that Raymond’s ‘Behind the Glory’ will be used as the theme song, the production team reportedly wanted to change it to ‘With You, Our Love is Perfect’, a duet by Niki and Richie Jen. This was mainly due to the actress’ skyrocketing popularity as well as Raymond’s departure from TVB.
Displeased to have the limelight taken away from him, Raymond allegedly threatened to boycott all promotional activities, if his track was not chosen as the theme song.
The singer-actor may have gotten his wish in the end, but media attention remained on Niki and Jeremy, after The Virtuous Queen of Han became dubbed as the couple’s “token of love” – which is believed to be the reason for his absence at the celebratory party.

I really enjoyed this drama until Madam Li came into the picture in episode 43.  I really didn't like the Emperor with this new young chick and turning his back on his Empress that he so loved once.
Even though they were together for almost 40 years...HE betrayed her love for her by believing in others.

In some angles, the main actress really looks Korean and confused me. I don't watch Niki Chow in dramas much since she mostly acts in Hong Kong dramas but she is absolutely beautiful as Princess Pingyang, who is another historical figure I was very much interested in.
