Quite funny...some chars from Yanxi got role reversed in Haolan. Eg "Mingyu" who suffered from needles in her body now became a physician who poked needles into others. "Yuan Chunwang" became a king. "Consort Gao" his queen. "Li Yu" became a minister where "Qianlong" had to bow to him. 

Near the end of clip.."Qianlong" and "Yingluo" kissed again after Yanxi.

Pls note the drama debut will be delayed to an unknown date. They said it's due to post-production issue. 

 

Thanks. Unfortunately, it's true and it's sad. So many rumors floating online. I find it hard to believe that the premiere could be officially released to be 11-15 and yet, just a day or two prior, it could be canceled and put on hold for a long time. It's rumored to be on hold till late 2019. Argh. I guess the truth will surface some day.

According to iQiyi, the delay is due to reshuffling of schedule. The new premiere date will be given separately, at another time.

Ah... 

No wonder there's a delay and a need to reschedule. There's an extension to the number of episodes - from 45 to 63. The whole crew and cast have gone back to filming! Whoa! :0

May i know which article mentioned that they have gone back to filming?

 

I tried to search the chinese articles but the one i read only mention which dramas would have their no of episodes extended. And there's no further details.

 

I don't even get the reason why this happened. I thought in the past the chinese tv dept prefer the dramas to be shorter. So puzzling.

 

The no of affected dramas are alot....around 10....even Ming Lan Story starring Zhao Liying is affected.

 

Without details...just based on gut feelings, i don't think all these actors would go back to film extra episodes and the sets would have been demolished by now.

 

Most probably is the dramas originally have extra scenes....by editing, they "create" extra episodes.

I really like this timeline in gifs of how WYL's storyline and character developed throughout the 70 episodes

I scanned through some C-news and weibo accounts. I can't recall exactly where I read that bit. I barely remember it was from a crew member. If I can find it, I'll post here. 

 

Btw, your theory sounds probable. That could be the case for the supporting cast, perhaps. I hope Yu Zheng isn't going to puff up with whatever he has. That would be quite disastrous, IMHO, since there are almost 20 eps of extension. Why should they film that much extra? Esp. with a budget in mind? I think some additional filming is perhaps needed and is not uncommon. It has happened before anyway.

This is the official song? Who sang? 

Nope. Both vids aren't of any relation to the drama, except for the posters used. These are FMV uploaded by the fan.

Me too :( Hope the wait will be worth it.

oooo....the emperor and Ying Luo is team up again?

Yes, they are teaming up again. But er... 

Spoiler

They have a triangular love entanglement which may not turn out well for them (from posts and comments I've read).

@jadecloud did you read the novel? Could you perhaps spoil some bits of it for us :sweatingbullets: considering now that we have to wait til next year for the release :/

 

I wonder why they would want to extend or film extra scenes for drama... My theory is that since Beauty Hao Lan was filmed way before Yanxi was released, and since they didnt know QianlongxYingluo cp would gain so many followings then, perhaps they are now trying to satisfy the public and fans with a better ending or readjust the main couple of the drama? Cause it seems like Nie Yuan was supposed to be second male lead in Haolan.
