My Amazing Bride Releases Trailers

For a romantic comedy with such bright colors, this drama plot implies something a little darker.

We’re used to the serious, dark, cunning, and evil side of period dramas but every now and again, something different is nice.  Enter My Amazing Bride.  My Amazing Bride is set in the Ming dynasty and stars Li Qin, Jin Shijia, Gao Yang, Maggie Shiu, Howie Huang, Kingdom Yuen, Vence Soong, Zheng Peipei, Xiong Naijin, and Chen Zihan in this comedic take on the typical story arcs every period drama requires.

The drama describes the “tofu Xi Shi” Tang Doudou (Li Qin), who is on the way to becoming a spinster. This is because she refuses to marry unless she meets a first-class gentlemen, who understands her and who she loves (therefore worthy of her true affections). After a misstep with the officials, the Tang clan faces its demise, but fortunately, the Zhuang family*  reaches out to help. Madame Zhuang wants Doudou to marry her oldest son, who has long been both good-looking, well-principled, and cultured genius – yet on the day of the wedding, he turns into an idiot with the intelligence level of an eight year old! Doudou is furious, and runs home, but without money to pay for her father’s illness, she must meet up with Madame Zhuang again. Her oldest son is still lovesick for Doudou, and his mother works out a one-year agreement with Doudou. But wait, Dou Dou discovers something very unusual about her husband’s illness, something a little out of place in the family, and seeks to find the truth – yet her mother-in-law is strangely unperturbed…?

*Pun: The “Village” of the Zhuangs is Zhuang Zhuang. More trailers and stills below the cut.

 

The charming life of a peasant girl…

Almost as charming as the life as the son of an aristocrat… but not quite.

Because, apparently, you don’t get to cook. (Feminists reading this, don’t jump me.)

OMG THANK YOU!! I was about to give up on anybody having clothing that are anything far from pastel!!

Meanwhile, the older generation shows of the various things you can do while sitting down to a cup of tea.

Like brooding…

Or striking awkward poses and laughing…. wait… are you sure those are TEA leaves you used?!?

“So THAT’S what they do after we serve them tea…”

At least the oldest generation seems to be in their right minds.

  1. Would prefer pastel over some of these costumes. i thought Woman in parma purple was holding an iphone at first glance…

    • It DOES look like she’s plotting revenge for a break-up text… XD

      On another note, I’m having a hard time processing how Zheng Peipei (Jade Fox from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) is in here. O_O

    • Thanks for the support! ^^b

      But to be completely honest, everybody at Cfensi deserves credit on my posts. Usually, I find some topic and take it as far as my (very limited) Chinese reading skills can go given the time I have and throw in my ideas for captions and pictures. Then comes the process of editing, changing things up, adding details I possibly missed (This one is important given the extent of my reading abilities), making sure to add things in case a new trailer is released, etc. So yeah, I’m very grateful for the extra effort that other people are willing to put into my posts. :)
