The Overly Affectionate Country has finally released a trailer after being backed up since filming in 2013 (almost as far back as the dynastic era).  This Qing dynasty melodrama stars Gao Yunxiang (Yu Zheng’s Mikey He replacement from Palace: The Lost Daughter), Hou Mengyao, Anita Yuen, etc..  This rendition follows the Shunzhi Emperor, father of Kangxi, as he meets the future Consort Donggo in the countryside.  Watch as their love struggles to uphold itself through Han-Manchu tensions and envious harem competitors and eventually gains the recognition Empress Dowager Xiaozhuang (See The Legend of Xiao Zhuang).  This happy conclusion happens just in time for the two leads to conveniently be swept away by an epidemic of small pox.  The end.
