Oh My General is the latest drama from Lv Haojiji (Go Princess Go!), and stars Ma Sichun (Soul Mate) as a badass female general of the Song dynasty, who is ordered to marry an immature and frivolous prince, played by Sheng Yilun (Pretty Li Huizhen).
This is Ma Sichun’s first project since her win at the Golden Horse Awards, so I’ll be curious to see if she can still bring out her best without the guidance of an experienced director like Peter Chan. The 60 episode drama will air weekly on Youku beginning tonight.
The costumes still look super Japanese (they got a Japanese costume designer) for the Song dynasty, but everything else for Oh My General is on point.
A genderswap take on the common tale of the tough general who finds his soft spot for the sweet girl at home who learns from him and shares his burden, Oh, My General 将军在上 actually looks both funny and sweet in its first trailer. Newly Crowned Golden Horse Best Actress Ma Sichun (Soul Mate) looks great for her first ancient lead role, and her partner Sheng Yilun (Go Princess Go) looks pretty enough for his.
Oh My General将军在上 has started filming based on the manuscript of a similar name 将军在上我在下 (The General is on top, I’m on the bottom). Starring Ma Sichun and Sheng Yilun, this seems to be more of a comedy so those who are interested can check this one out.
