The Princess Weiyang new trailer and speculations

After looking at these posters, I am reminded of how far China has come in terms of drama productions.  Only a couple years ago, I would have been ranting and raving about this drama.  It’s still good but the sheer amount with which our standards have progressed is astounding.

The Princess Weiyang (Weiyoung) has more character posters and a new trailer.  Starring Tang Yan, Luo Jin, Vanness Wu, Li Xin’ai, Mao Xiaotong, and Liang Zhenlun, hopefully this means that the projected November release date has some weight behind it.
