cre: Koala's Playground

 Early years of Ming dynasty. Commoner Xia Xun (Hans Zhang) mistakenly takes the place of the dead wealthy merchant scholar Yang Xu and becomes a pawn of the Royal Guard (literally silk robed guard). After witnessing supervisor Zhang Shi San and his gang's cruel ways, Xia Xun decided to protect himself and to get rid of evil for the people. At the same time, he gets acquainted with his future wife, Xie Yu Fei (Park Min Young), and the two start a bickering type of relationship. Not long after, on his way back home, Xia Xun was chased down by the Royal Guard, but was saved by Xi Men Jing (Jeremy Tsui) and Ji Gang (Shawn Wei). The three were like they had known each for a long time and became sworn-brothers. They decide to travel together. Sometime later, the three unintentionally saves Prince Yan and his wife, and daughter. Xia Xun's abilities attract the attention of Bai Yi Xia and Luo Ke Di, leaders of opposing factions within the Royal Guards. After receiving training from the two leaders, Xia Xun becomes a very skilled and talented Royal Guard. Under the help of Luo Ke Di, Xia Xun destroys the plans of Bai Yi Xia, forcing Bai to leave. Soon after, Xia Xun counter attacks Luo Ke Di, and takes control of the Royal Guards. After Zhu Yuan Wen (2nd Ming Emperor) ascended to the throne and began his conquest of surrounding kingdoms, Xia Xun decided to help Prince Yan ascend to the throne in order to prevent further suffering of the people. With the perfect teamwork of Xia Xun and Ji Gang by Prince Yan's side, the two became major contributors to Prince Yan's future throne ascension. The two become new nobilities, and as their power/influence increase, so does Ji Gang's ambition. As more and more contradictions are born between them, Xia Xun became Ji Gang's number one fear. Furthermore, his most loved woman chooses Xia Xun in the end. The two brothers become enemies ultimately. Using Emperor Zhu Di(former Prince Yan) suspicion, Ji Gang forces Xia Xun into a corner, just how will Xia Xun escape in one piece...

This was a good idea, thanks for starting it. The story looks interesting and 2016 seems so far away. :/  Good luck to all members of the cast, crew, and production team for a successful outcome.

@OksanaS I think it is some Hengdian tour diary, the studio where BOTM is being shot. They have mentioned the Ming Dynasty sets there, I think. Hopefully we will get more pics from the tourists.

​kekekeke, but i'm not sure since just translating on google trans. If any bed scene it means this is her third bed scene in drama, right? SKKS, HEALER, BOTM (if it's true) :D

off topic: just visiting The Four thread (ZH's latest historical drama), they waited for over one year to watch it. Wah how patient they are.But lets just enjoy it :P

ahaha, @dandelionjd, I guess you could count SKKS on the list but then you would have to multiply it about 10 times since she slept in the same room with two other scholars.......  What scene did you think was a bed scene.......when they were married at the end?  To me it didn't count as a bed scene but that is my take on it. lol

Also, in Princess Ja Myung Go she is married and is in a bed on her wedding night, all covered up of course. lol

I'm really surprised if there is a bed scene in BOtM, since I heard there are rules in Chinese dramas.....someone posted a list of not allowed types of scenes and a bed scene was on the list. Hmmm, really curious now.

Greetings chingus!  Thank you for this new thread @mimi26. <3

It looks like BOTM will be broadcast online first before any of the TV networks picks up the drama in 2016 as per reported in this article:

"Another online series that has attracted more than 100 billion yuan in investments is Braveness of the Ming produced by LeTV. The drama is an adaptation of the 2011 online novel by Yueguan (Wei Lijun). Although LeTV is coproducing the show with Guizhou TV, the series will first appear online before it is broadcast through traditional means."

Here are some pics of the prayer ceremony that were posted on Weibo. They had great weather that day so that's usually already a good sign for filming that will run smoothly and harmoniously. Wish them all an enjoyable time in filming! :)

Here's the poster that came out in early March of this year for the drama. The full cast was yet to be confirmed at that time so the faces of the lead actors could not be used in this poster.

Thanks @frannie_8pie, for posting all the lovely pictures.  Do you know what the orange/red paper things are that were handed out?  I'm curious if it's for good luck or what the meaning is about? Thanks.

​My pleasure @Eileen531.  The Red envelopes are usually "Lucky Money" packets given to staff by the bosses ( or possibly the TV studio in this case) in encouragement and token of appreciation for the staff's forthcoming dedication and efforts to the project.  It's kind of like an early bonus if you may with a possibility for more bonus money packets if the drama does well ratings wise. It's common practice along with the opening prayer ceremony for each movie/drama before filming in China and other parts of Asia.  

Further info can be found here if you're interested:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_envelope

​You're welcome @dandelionjd!  Yes, over 100 billion yuan is considered a pretty big budget for a 30 ep Chinese historical drama. Look forward to some great visuals from this drama. There will most likely be lots of promotions too when it nears its release date.  Plus, the actors and production staff usually get better catered food during filming of bigger budget productions lol.

​Do 45 minutes (duration per drama) have tight schedule in filming?
