Upcoming period drama news round-up

Zheng Shuang ready to start a fight over who’s prettier, her or Ma Tianyu.

After playing a quarreling duo in Legend of the Ancient Sword 古剑奇谭, Zheng Shuang and Ma Tianyu meet again for Gourmet Beauty 美人私房菜, a romantic comedy of food and beauty. More here. 

While we haven’t seen Hu Ge in a while, he’s been kept busy with dramas. He recently begun filming a lead role in the List of Langya 琅琊榜. Nicknamed the Chinese “The Count of Monte Cristo” and based on the book of the same name, the List of Langya is yet another epic directed by Kong Sheng of Chuang GuanDong. The series costars Liu Tao, Wang Kai, Jin Dong and Chen Long. Character drawings here. I’m so excited for this!!!

As if he needed the lighting to make him look good.

Yu Zheng’s The Condor Heroes finally finished filming last week. New stills of mostly Chen Xiao here.

Our Fair Princess Li Sheng continues to play her string of selfless Mary Sue’s in internet novel adaptations in Fate of the heavens 天地情缘. At least the two guys, Gao Yunxiang and Huang Ming, are much better looking than Mickey He.  Filming ended in December.

Actress Li Qin, who seems to have finally made it with a string of popular modern series like Return of the Heiress, is going back in time again, for the first time playing a comical tofu maker in My Amazing Bride 极品新娘. She’ll be up against her seemingly-stupid husband Jin Shijia and co-star Gao Yang. Filming finished today. Initial stills here.

A belated/early Happy New Year from Li Qin and Jin Shijia.
