Although Hunan TV claimed it was due to technical difficulties, many speculated that it was due to the excess amount of cleavage that was shown in the series. After re-editing, The Empress of China resumed broadcast on January 1, 2015. Viewers noticed that the screen zoomed in on close-ups of the actresses’ faces and cleavage shots were largely absent since its rebroadcast.

While some viewers were thrilled after the series resumed its broadcast, some netizens were displeased with the amount of editing that was done. Prior to editing, the female cast wore eye-catching Tang costumes with plunging necklines. Since the rebroadcast, wide shots and close-ups were heavily employed to minimize the amount of cleavage. Some netizens commented, “They’ve turned into big-headed dolls!”

However, despite the re-edits to please The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), the viewership ratings of The Empress of China remains at an all-time high, proving that Fan Bingbing’s presence on the small screen still trumps all.

TVB has also acquired the broadcasting rights for The Empress of China from air. TVB executive Tsang Sing Ming (曾醒明) stated that the drama will be repackaged for appropriate editing and voice dubbing.

@akira and meanychan .... yeah i agree with you with costume.. and i had read in the  about the censor part is some article but that time it is a rumor.. it is just somehow a waste 'cause i know that Fan Bingbing likes to show the glamorous look of that era.. she already spent too much effort, time and money for the show.. i don't think it is just for a show but to emphasize her love for acting and filmography...
critics are still critics... hahhaha... trying to balance everything out..

Recently, female star, Kathy Chow (周海媚), filmed the Mainland China series, The Empress of China (武媚娘傳奇), and this increased her popularity. She acted as an arrogant and cold person but in reality, she was very caring to her pets and showed photos of herself with her beloved dogs several times. In the photo, the dogs went round in circles to surround her while Kathy was eating. It was very cute and Kathy said: "It have been with since their birth. It has been 3 years and we resemble a family, and accompany each other." Kathy's caring character also won compliments from the netizens.

A hilarious photo featuring a unique combination of both the “Running Man” cast and Chinese drama “The Empress of China’s” Fan Bingbing has caught the attention of netizens everywhere.
The above image was uploaded on Ji Suk Jin’s Weibo page on January 10, and shows Running Man members Yoo Jae Suk, HaHa, Gary, Kim Jong Kook, Song Ji Hyo, Lee Kwang Su, and Ji Suk Jin’s faces combined with the body of Fan Bingbing’s Wu Meinian character. Of course, the Running Man members’ individual personalities shine through in each photo, and each shows off their own unique charms.
Meanwhile, “Running Man’s” cast (excluding HaHa and Gary) will be traveling to Taiwan’s National Taiwan University for a fan meeting on January 17. Running Man continues to be extremely popular in China, and the recently released domestic version of the show got very high ratings for its first season.

Artiste, Kathy Chow (周海媚), was one of the female leads in the series, The Empress of China (武媚娘傳奇), and the series was broadcasting in Mainland China currently. During an interview earlier, she disclosed she had zero rest while filming the series for 4 months and this broke her record.

Meany-chan said: I heard they are airing this on TVB. Does it mean that it's available in Cantonese? I can understand Cantonese instead of Mandarin. And where can I watch it if there's a Cantonese version?
yes, it will be dubbed in cantonese.  I am not sure where to watch it if you don't have the TVB channel :/

yes, it will be dubbed in cantonese.  I am not sure where to watch it if you don't have the TVB channel :/ Thanks for the answer! It's either wait for the Cantonese version or wait for somebody to add Eng subs to the Mandarin version.

I read somewhere that the tvb version one will be edited so itll be shorter than the original
