not so patiently wait on the release of period dramas long overdue *glares*, Nirvana in Fire 琅琊榜 has decided to press full steam ahead and release a movie-qualitied trailer upon finishing filming today, and I can say with pride that I’ve seen it at least 20 times.
Produced by Shandong Film & TV Group and directed by Kong Sheng, the series is once more a perfect combination of high production values, an enticing plot, and a perfect cast with Hu Ge, Wang Kai, Wu Lei, Chen Long, Liu Tao, etc. For those of us with growing Central Drama voice fetishes, the trailer includes all original voices by the actors. Wang Kai has always dubbed for himself, so even if they dub it in the future, we’ll probably get to hear his gorgeous voice again!

A word of warning: despite what the trailer may imply, romance fills a max of five pages out of over a thousand of the book, and Hu Ge’s role never has any romantic feelings. Pretty much all of Liu Tao’s roles’ scenes are included in the trailer (minus the two pages of her actual romantic plot in the book).
