Xu Kai and Li Yitong Attend TVB Signing for Tang Dynasty Women

007DGtvvly1g16y37fnnwj32yo4g0npf.jpg

 

Xu Kai and Li Yitong flew to Hong Kong to attend a press conference yesterday to mark the contract signing between TVB and production company Huanyu Film for the distribution rights to Tang Dynasty Women (lit.) 大唐女儿行. It can be remembered that TVB and Huanyu Film also cooperated to air Story of Yanxi Palace in Hong Kong. Xu Kai and Li Yitong got to talking about their characters.

Li Yitong describes Tang Dynasty Women as a drama filled with love and affection.  She also says that there is a loving relationship between her character and Xu Kai's that are mixed with emotional complications. Her character Fu Rou is a kind girl with a strong heart.

Xu Kai also talks about his character Cheng Mo.  He describes Cheng Mo as someone with an attitude problem and comes from a rich family.  Xu Kai says that Cheng Mo who was once a cynical man has a change of heart after meeting Fu Rou and Cheng Mo will often get jealous because of her.

Xu Kai also shares something quite personal. After doing so many period dramas, he said that his hairline has started receding which is why he has been looking into hair implants. Nonetheless, he says that he will still look at the script, if it's a good one, he'll shave his head for it. He admits that in a few years, he will probably really need hair implants because of his high hairline. On the topic of receding hairlines, Li Yitong adds that she can relate and also comments that despite having the same problem, it won't stop her from filming as long as the script is good.

I loved LYT in BR and of course XK in Legends.  Actually I liked him in UL.  His character and acting was better than SWL.  I LL follow the news in this thread and will surely watch this.

This looks like another gender bender drama. Lin Yitong looks like she is dressed as an official of some kind. I’m not very familiar with the early Tang period so not sure if women were allowed to become officials unless they worked in the palace.

@frostflower14 I don't think there is any gender bender element. Her character is mentioned as a female official in various places.

 

Edited to add: One of the sources mentioned her official capacity has something to do with embroidery. No wonder there are so many photos of her doing embroidery.
