The silent film teaser for Beneath the Brocade Robes describes Lu Yi (Ren Jialun) as a shrewd secret police officer / jinyiwei who has formidable martial arts skills.

More stills for The Glory of Tang Dynasty

Despite 2016 being a bit of a disappointment due to everybody’s standards being raised to unbelievable heights by epic productions (the standard of which will likely be raised further in 2017 given dramas already on the production line), I have to say that 2016 was the year that the bar for the AVERAGE drama’s bar was raised greatly in terms of production standards. The next step will be to raise the average drama’s bar in story-telling, not just production standards.

The Glory of Tang Dynasty 大唐荣耀 has released a slurry of stills leading up to the projected January 29th release.  Starring Jing TianWan QianRen Jialun, and Shu Chang, more images for people looking forward to this production.
