Chen Kun and Ni Ni’s The Rise of Phoenixes has released two TV spots, a bunch of new stills, and also gotten itself a new native title of 天盛长歌 (lit. The Golden Age of Tiansheng). The 70 episode drama is confirmed to air as a daily drama from August 14th.
I am 95% confident the drama has a sad ending in store for us just based on the last line: “I swear upon my father’s grave that regardless of the circumstance I am in, I shall never marry Ning Yi.”
(The drama is using on-site recording, hence the lack of familiar dubbing voices)
Fingers-crossed SARFT doesn’t cancel it at the last minute (Peace in Palace, Peace in Chang’an) or take it off air midway through (The Destiny of White Snake).
The headgear is…interesting.
I must say, Bai Jingting looks mighty fine as Ni Ni’s stone-faced and over-protective bodyguard.
