The Rise of Phoenixes tells the story of an ambitious prince (Chen Kun) who wants the throne for himself, and his love-hate relationship with a cross-dressing genius politician (Ni Ni). Character introductions can be found here.

It’s worth mentioning that the drama is using on-site recording, which is no small feat for a historical drama (or any drama) these days. My only complaint? The length of the teaser. Fingers-crossed a longer teaser that also features the solid supporting cast is released soon.

    1. I did a double take as well, initially thought it was another actor. Apparently it’s on purpose, to suit the character’s age and situation (much like how he spoke in a lower tone for Mojin/The Ghouls?)
