Tangren may be attempting to recreate the classic that was Bubu Jingxin / Scarlet Heart with their upcoming period romance drama Dreaming Back to the Qing Dynasty 梦回大清. Li Landi (My Huckleberry Friends) stars as Mingwei, the heroine who can time travel back and forth between the Qing dynasty and the 21st century.
She catches the attention of pretty much all of Kangxi’s sons, and gets entangled in their political ambitions along the way. Mingwei’s main love interest thirteenth prince Yinxiang is played by new actor Wang Anyu.
The drama is based on the novel of the same name by Jinzi, and is helmed by Lee Kwok Lap and written by Wang Lizhi, who both worked on Bubu.
