Has Fan bingbing and the same director as The Empress of China which means I'll definitely watch this but The Empress of China was so epic visually I think my expectations might be too high..

Win the World = The Empress of China 2

 

I will pass. Once again Fan Bing Bing is a victim of her typecasting scheme and portrays another female role on the rise to ultimate power through a tumultuous voyage of deceit, violence, and triumph. LOL.

yeah, i read somewhere that there is a restriction on the number of historical episodes shown within a certain timeframe.  How can there be such a restriction?....whats the 'bad' behind showing 'too much' historical dramas?

erm i think it is because some of the writer based on the history but they divert from the original history especially for those times travelling concepts

 

they are trying to preserve their history i should think

Li Chen (Fan Bing Bing's real-life fiance) is the new male lead now.  Since the original male lead is detained in Australia's prison(?) due to his scandal. 

 

They refilming all the necessary parts with Li Chen as this drama was ready to be shown this summer before the scandal broke out.  Wonder how the scenes will look like in the final product.

I can't wait to judge this drama if it ever airs...You would think Fan BingBing learned the first time around when it comes to SARF....Empress of China had to have reshoots because of story lines and costume changes, and on top of the scandal...the story line and costume seems to be way off as well.

Reasons why this drama is having trouble passing Sarft (or whatever they are called these days):

 

1. Historical inaccuracies: most importantly, they portrayed the first emperor of China in a very wrong way, to the point that well known history professors personally wrote to Sarft and told them to not air it (professors, convincing essays about the damaging such drama will create to the mind of the youngsters... FBB has a hard case to argue there xD). And yes, hairstyle, costumes, all wrong for the period.

 

2. China do not like to air drama with actors who have immoral scandals: the main actor, who acted as the first emperor of China, found himself in a rape alleged case, where the victim named him as one of the attackers, currently the case is still in progress even though the victim has now agreed to settle. But Australian law, victim can settle, doesn’t mean you can go scorch free. They are saying this case will go on for at least another 6 months

 

3. And now FBB finds herself in tax evasion scandals, this is relatively new, however, it might push the drama further back! (I’m not even sure if it’s real, it seems real, but I couldn’t believe it lol)

 

if you are a fan of FBB, you just need to wait, don’t ask when it will come out, ask whether it will come out lol.

Well, I guess we can say the drama has now been postponed indefinitely with the news that leading lady Fan Bingbing has been convicted of tax evasion and ordered to pay a fine of $130 million US dollars.

Yes. I read at another forum that any type of scandal, including fraud, is very serious to a star's career in mainland China so not surprised that she disappeared from public view once the news broke she was being investigated for tax fraud. Now that she is a convicted felon, I wonder if she will be able to salvage her career or not. Not sure how the public views these types of things in China. I read her fiance has broken off their engagement as a result of the tax fraud scandal. Apparently, he comes from a prominent military family so any hint of scandal is not acceptable, let alone any actual convictions. 

It seems the Chinese government is now cracking down on tax fraud in the entertainment industry according to this article, so it looks like Fan Bing Bing won't be alone:

Has her engagement really been broken off, or is that just gossip? 

 

The main reason this got postphoned as long as it did was because it didnt pass SARFT for the historical inaccuracies but the ongoing scandals involving the actors will have this postphone indefinitely.  Hunan bought the broadcasting rights for this back in 2017 but some reason they dropped it and dragon tv picked it up

yes as far as i known.... Li Chen seems to be from some well off background even though he never really brought his family history up for all to see.....

 

however there are some reports stating that he back her....so im not sure what direction of their relationship will go
