Ancient Sword must have one of the most incredible female casts in a while, with at least seven of them being regular drama leads by themselves. The series boasts a cast of Yang Mi, Zheng Shuang,Gillian Chung, Zhang Meng, Li Xiaolu, Chen Zihan,Dilireba, Zhang Na, Wang Yimiao, and Qi Wei.
I can’t believe we never posted character posters for this, but as the series is scheduled to air in July, be prepared for a lot of photo spam. Female character posters below the cut.
