What a coincidence.
Only a few weeks ago I was rewatching Da Han Tian Zi and wishing for a drama about Wei Zifu, and I am in luck. Wang Luodan is currently filming for a new drama, The Virtuous Empress of Han Wei Zifu. This empress of the Han dynasty does seem to have a Cinderella story, going from being a lowly maid to empress of the Emperor Wu (inspiring a folk song that went something like this – don’t rejoice for having a son, don’t cry for having borne a daughter, can’t you see how Wei Zifu is becoming an overlord?) I’m really curious about how they’ll handle her relationship with her husband, whose love she monopolized for ten years…and who would end up driving her son (and her) to suicide in actual history. Look below the cut for stills.
