Everlasting Serenity 岁岁青莲 (lit.) was originally a Qing dynasty romance drama that went by the name of Xifei’s Royal Love in the Palace. To avoid delays due to censorship, production company New Classics Media (Ruyi’s Royal Love) has changed the dynasty, though the storyline will remain intact for the most part. He Hongshan (Legend of the Phoenix) plays Luo Qinglian, a kind-hearted and learned noble lady who marries prince He Lianxin (Peter Ho).
Luo Qinglian is content to lead an ordinary life and aspires for a suitor who only has eyes for her, yet is instead forced to marry into the royal family. She discovers her husband He Lianxin is not the heartless and stone-faced noble he presents himself to be, and secretly helps him navigate the treacherous waters, earning his affection and respect in the process.
Costars include Huang Youming (Story of Minglan), Niki Chow (Nothing Gold Can Stay), Fu Jing (Rocket Girls), Zhang Chenguang (All Is Well), Li Jinrong (A Lifetime Love) and Huang Shengyi (Iceman 2).
Based on Legend of Consort Xi 熹妃传 by Jieyu, the drama is written by Zhang Yongchen (General and I).
