A Dream of Splendor 梦华录 stars Liu Yifei(Mulan) as Zhao Pan’er, the owner of a Hangzhou teahouse who is abandoned by her husband-to-be Ouyang Xu after he ranks third in the national examinations. She embarks on a journey to the capital Bianjing to seek justice for herself, and helps Song Yinzhang (Lin Yun) and Sun Sanniang (Liu Yan) escape their abusive marriages along the way.
Beautiful Reborn Flower stars Song Weilong as the hero who struggles to work out which of the sisters (both played by Lin Yun) he is actually in love with. The synopsis suggests they’re two different people, but the trailer makes me think they’re the same person after all?
Filmed in 2017, the 50 episode drama releases 2 eps every Friday to Monday on iQiyi and Tencent. English subs will be available on their respective apps / Tencent WeTV. It’s also available on Youtube here.
