Celebrating in Red with The Princess of Orchid Hills

The cover for Northern Zhou’s Vogue magazine for next week.

The Princess of Lanling has released red-costumed stills just in time for Chinese New Year, starring  Zhang HanyunPeng Guanying, and Andy Chen Yi.  These stills give us a closer look at the embroidery and details that go into the grander costumes in this production as well as the backgrounds and filming locations.

The Princess of Orchid Hills releases second trailer

In order to compete with Twilight, fans are requesting a picture of your face for their Team Lanling Wang and Team Yuwen Yong shirts.

Starring  Zhang HanyunPeng Guanying, and Andy Chen Yi, be prepared for more of the shipping triangle between Yuwen Yong, the Prince of Lanling, and a hopelessly idealistic heroine with The Princess of Lanling‘s new long trailer.  The trailer reveals more about the plot and will hopefully help us better gauge what to expect.

More stills below the cut because we simply can’t resist.

Princess of Orchid Hills trailer is as pretty as the stills

Even if his prettiness isn’t enough to draw our attention away from the girls’ costumes, I figured Andy Chen deserves a chance at above the cut since he is the lead.

The gorgeously-costumed The Princess of Orchid Hills 兰陵皇妃 finally released a trailer. It’s obvious even from the trailer that Peng Guanying‘s acting pwns that of the other three leads –  Zhang Hanyun, Andy Chen Yi, and Theresa Fu – but I’ll be happy to just watch the series for how pretty everything (including the leads) looks. Also, you might want to turn off the sound because the narrator makes it sound like a horror film.

Seven Friends actually airs

It was either this photo or  them actually cosplaying the rainbow.   And you thought the costumes to Fu Xinbo’s  Ban Shu Legend was colorful.

Hey look, we’re actually posting on a drama that actually aired!!!! And here we were thinking dramas we post on only air  the day after Yu Zheng and Tangren become bff’s.

Modern idol series Seven Friends 七个朋友 stars Fu Xinbo, AK’s Andy Chen Yi and Kris Shen Jiatong, Kirsten Ren (Selina’s sister), Liu Xin (the Super Girl), and Theresa Fu, and recently finished airing on CTV.

Opening sung by the septet composed by Liu Xin below the cut, and the full series (minus first two eps) here.

The Princess of Orchid Hills takes the challenge, ups the pretty

I pray… like I have never prayed before… for the release of this drama… or at least a trailer….

While we ooh and ah over the stills of other period dramas (and curse the lack of episodes), The Princess of Lanling 兰陵王妃 has been feeling largely left out on the attention.  Therefore, the show took it upon itself to release quality stills of their more exquisite costumes.  Starring Andy Chen Yi (whose drama Seven Friends just aired on CTV),  Zhang Hanyun, and Peng Guanying, the series hopes to prove that the Prince of Orchid Hills is not out of fashion and still something to moon over, lady-killing since last year.

Orchid Hills welcomes another prince in “Princess of Orchid Hills”

"Who's prettier, me or Feng Shaofeng?"  "You look the same with your mask on."
“Who’s prettier, me or Feng Shaofeng?” “I can’t tell, but his mask is much scarier.”

The land of Lanling seems to have become a new hotspot as The Princess of Lanling 兰陵王妃, a second series on the beautiful Prince of Lanling begins filming.
The good news is, lead Andy Chen Yi is more of the pretty type than “beautiful sister” Feng Shaofeng.  The main actress stars the equally baby-faced and adequately named Baby Zhang Hanyun, who is still only 24 despite having been shot to fame through Super Girls 10 years ago.  This series was approved about the same time as the other version and is based on the internet novel Royal Princess of Orchid Hills 兰陵皇妃.
