New stills of the leads and key props have been released for The Rise of Phoenixesthe upcoming historical romance drama starring Chen Kun (Beautiful Accident) and Ni Ni (Wukong).

Director Shen Yan recently revealed in an interview that the drama will deviate away from the original quite heavily, meaning that there will be more emphasis on court politics and less on romance, though he has promised that the classic scenes from the novel will remain. The 70 episode drama will continue filming until the end of December.

  1. Hope it won’t disappoint us just just like some dramas *ahem* Princess Agents *ahem* with its awesome trailers and stills but lackluster and all-over the place plot.

  2. I’m ALL for more emphasis on politic and less on romance, as long as the show knows what it’s doing
