This is your weather forecast. Today we can expect purple skies and thunder storms but none of this will deter cranes from flying around still. Palace backdrop courtesy of Curse of the Golden Flower.
Seeing the amount of attention Han dynasty dramas have been getting, I thought we needed a breather. Seeing the things that Yu Zheng gets away with and the number of installments he has added to his overdone Palace series, Lafeng Entertainment has decided to challenge this by making a sequel to their 2011 television series Mystery in the Palace. Starring Ady An, Kara Hui, Michelle Yim, Jiang Yi, Chen Zihan, and Liu Tingyu, Golden Hair-Pins in the Palace 金钗谍影(Who came up with this title?!?) is seeking to up Yu Zheng on the color palette and costume creativity, something they are starting to become famous for .
Set in the Qing dynasty, Golden Hair-Pins in the Palace seems to follow the typical story of an innocent girl as she navigates the plots and schemes in typical palace life and finds true love along the way, except with some detective stories added in like the sequel. Anyways, more stills below the cut to ogle so I guess it’s a win.
Wait!! Is this the MAID outfit?!? Even servants dress this elaborately?!? O_o
Let’s see Yu Zheng out-color that!!
According to the cut of that brown outfit, is this the Qing dynasty or Republican-era Shanghai?!?
What’s going on with that collar?!?
Having the exact same outfit in two different colors for no good reason was something spoiled people did in antiquity as well…
Since this is a Qing dynasty drama, they always throw in some Mongolian-looking outfits for diversity… -_-;;
I see they went Russian as well… wait wut?!?
These days, no period palace drama is complete without a jewel-encrusted bird sitting on somebody’s head.
Trying to look like Zhenhuan shot.
Ever since The Legend of Zhenhuan aired, the dianzi 钿子 has finally found its place, shining among all the other helicopter headdresses for Qing dynasty dramas. #takethatzhenhuanzhuan
Wait… wait… we need to fit another jeweled flower and butterfly onto that dianzi!!
