Promo Round-up: Novoland: Pearl Eclipse

Novoland: Pearl Eclipse chronicles Haishi’s (Yang Mi) journey from a fisherman’s daughter to a general and finally empress dowager of a kingdom. She’ll also have a torturous romance with her teacher Fang Zhu (William Chan), who has sworn a blood oath to his king. The secondary couple is also pretty melodramatic – we have a king (Xu Kaicheng) whose first love was sacrificed due to political intrigue, and a new empress (Chen Xiaoyun) who looks exactly like the king’s first love.

The 48 episode drama releases 1 episode a day on Tencent (viewing calendar).
