Stills for The Advisor’s Alliance

After seeing stills like these, I come to appreciate the sheer variety of costuming styles that exist in China and how they grow side by side.

The Advisor’s Alliance 军师联盟 has released stills.  Starring Wu Xiubo, Li Chen, Liu Tao, Janine Chang, Tang Yixin, Zhang Zhixi, Zhai Tianlin, Yu Hewei, and Zhang He, I will admit I’m getting a bit impatient for a more official release date.

The Advisor’s Alliance continues run of quality stills

Didn’t really like Liu Tao’s character in The Legend of Miyue. Hope she fares better in this one.

The Advisor’s Alliance 军师联盟 has released more stills, giving us a look at the various settings the drama will take place in.  Starring Wu Xiubo, Li Chen, Liu Tao, Janine Chang, Tang Yixin, Zhang Zhixi, Zhai Tianlin, Yu Hewei, and Zhang He, this is definitely on list of dramas that need to be put on the fast-track for release.

I need an official glimpse of Sima Yi’s adversary Zhuge Liang. The feather fan in the trailer is not enough…

The Advisors Alliance stars Wu Xiubo as Sima Yi, a politician and strategist of Cao Wei in the Three Kingdoms period. Sima Yi served as a strategist to three rulers, including warlord Cao Cao (Yu Hewei) and Kings Cao Pi (Li Chen) and Cao Rui (Liu Huan).

The Advisor’s Alliance wows with more

I think this is the more realistic period-pretty we all want a dose of time to time.

The Advisor’s Alliance 军师联盟 has released more stills shortly after the last release.  Starring Wu Xiubo, Li Chen, Liu Tao, Janine Chang, Tang Yixin, Zhang Zhixi, Zhai Tianlin, Yu Hewei, and Zhang He, I think it’s amazing how much these costumes seem to transform the actors into their respective roles.

The genes for good looks clearly run in this family.

Wu Xiubo, Liu Tao, Janine Chang, Wang Dong, and M.I.C. boyband‘s Tan Jianci and Xiao Shunyao form the extraordinarily good-looking Sima family in The Advisors Alliance 军师联盟.   The series follows the Sima Yi‘s initial support for and then eventual coup d’état of the Cao Wei Kingdom.

For those of you confused,  Wu Xiubo and Wang Dong play brothers. Liu Tao and Zhang Junning play Wu Xiubo’s wives.  Tan Jianci and Xiao Shunyao play Liu Tao and Wu Xiubo’s sons.   Now you’re probably even more confused …. On the side of the Cao family, we have Yu Hewei, Li Chen, Zhai Tianlin, Tang Yixin, Wang Renjun, Zhang Zhixi, and Liu Huan.
