Held in the Lonely Castle gets name change and release date, releases new promos

So SARFT has decided to give Held in the Lonely Castle a new name, and the historical drama is now going by the name Serenade of Peaceful Joy 清平乐. The new name is the title of a popular song during the Song Dynasty commonly used by poets to pen lyrics of common life, a reference to the peaceful and prosperous reign under the Emperor Renzong, in part perhaps due to the high and lonely standards the Emperor held for himself and his family. Wang Kai plays the emperor stuck between a rock and hard place, while Jiang Shuying costars as his empress.

The 69 episode drama airs daily on Hunan TV beginning April 6 April 7.

Despite the name change, there is definitely not an iota of joy in the new trailer below.
