Chen Kun ascends the throne in first teaser for The Rise of Phoenixes

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.

    • 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?)
