Mickey He and Li Yixiao’s Half for the People, Half for Beauties has released a trailer. I just thought I would make a note in case anybody is interested in this production on Hua Tuo and a… ermmm… new take on the classic Three Kingdoms tale.
Starring Mickey He and Li Yixiao in a drama about the turbulent Three Kingdoms that isn’t about the literary novel, Half for the People, Half for Beauties has released a set of character stills.
The drama follows the famous doctor Hua Tuo, a Chinese doctor famous for surgery and anesthesia. In order to help cure the governor’s daughter’s (Ming Xin) eyes, they travel searching for the anaesthetic mafeisan. During his adventures, he meets Guan Yu, Cao Cao, and and becomes embroiled in politics, including a drop by at the famous Battle of Red Cliffs.
More stills below the cut.
