Beginning its venture into the wuxia world, Lafeng Entertainment has decided to create Xianxia Sword, starring Jiang Yi, Liu Tingyu, Lu Yulin, Tian Li, Zhang Chenguang, Tang Zhenye, and Chen Weihan. The story centers on a female Robin-Hood-like character and her escapades to give justice to the downtrodden and clear her father’s name with her legendary sword while wandering the world.
Seeing the amount of attention Han dynasty dramas have been getting, I thought we needed a breather. Seeing the things that Yu Zheng gets away with and the number of installments he has added to his overdone Palace series, Lafeng Entertainment has decided to challenge this by making a sequel to their 2011 television series Mystery in the Palace. Starring Ady An, Kara Hui, Michelle Yim, Jiang Yi, Chen Zihan, and Liu Tingyu, Golden Hair-Pins in the Palace 金钗谍影(Who came up with this title?!?) is seeking to up Yu Zheng on the color palette and costume creativity, something they are starting to become famous for .
Set in the Qing dynasty, Golden Hair-Pins in the Palace seems to follow the typical story of an innocent girl as she navigates the plots and schemes in typical palace life and finds true love along the way, except with some detective stories added in like the sequel. Anyways, more stills below the cut to ogle so I guess it’s a win.
