The Imperial Doctress aims for release

At long last… the wait seems to be over!!

The Imperial Doctress, starring Liu ShishiWallace Huo, Huang Xuan, Li Chengyuan, and Yuan Wenkang, is aiming for a February 13th release.  Those of you keeping track of Sinology Sundays and this drama probably know that I have high hopes for at least the costuming from what I have seen so far.

Also, I am just glad that the emperors are not wearing completely golden head-gears but instead black ones with gold embellishments which seems to be more historically accurate.  Although golden ones have been found, the honor of lounging around in one seems to have the requirement of being dead.

Well… isn’t this a compromising position…

The Imperial Doctress, starring Liu ShishiWallace Huo, Huang Xuan, Li Chengyuan, and Yuan Wenkang, has decided to challenge Yu Zheng on the pretty and costume accuracy and release stills of their own.  The Imperial Doctress 女医·明妃传 will follow the story of historical figure Tan Yunxian, a female physician, as she builds her knowledge among the common people and elevates her position to an imperial physician.  Expect plenty of imperial infighting as brothers Emperor Zhengtong/Tianshun (Wallace Huo), and Emperor Jingtai (Huang Xuan) vie for the right to rule and for Tan Yunxian’s affections.

Anyhoo, more stills below the cut. (more…)
