Managing to live a good and successful life while retaining one’s dignity is simply too difficult to achieve.

The transmigration theme could be easily removed from the storyline as it only play a small role. So I hope they stay faithful to the novel, not change it (like Princess Wei Young, although I quite like the drama) or ruin it (like General and I).

@sugarplum892 hi, i really liked FSH in Prince of Lan Ling as he potrayed the LLW so well i got so besotted by his character.  His subsequent roles were less appealing and I am waiting to see how he's going to portray the male lead beside talented ZLY here.

I’m a fan of ZLY and FSF… Super excited to see their chemistry on screen… I hope the drama won’t be dragging.

Anyone know if there is an eng translating for the novel?

Excited to see how ZLY will portray a pessimistic and negative person since her face is so round and fluffy oozing positive charm.haha. I love it when she always try to choose different role in her dramas or movies. I think this is the first time she'll act as a pessimist, worth to wait. :)

the production company is really good, I am a bit iffy on the director since I found Ode To Joy 2 not as good as the first one but it could also be the script. One of the screen writers worked in War of Changsha and that has really good reviews. So I am hopeful. We just need a good script, decent director, and good production company. 

rumor blog says some of the cast was decided already:

Qi Heng, Zhu Yilong, and Gan Tingting (I only know Gan Ting Ting from General and I, she was good there. The rest are unknown to me.)

180 days of filming, pretty long schedule

Cast is out. Seems like a lot of the actors are from the production company. A lot of people I don't know. I think only Zhao Liying and Feng Shao Feng are popular.
