I thought it would be a drama set mostly in the imperial kitchen, but the trailers for Royal Feast makes it look like the typical palace romance between a maid turned empress (Wu Jinyan) and the future emperor (Xu Kai).
The 40 episode drama will stream on Mango TV – viewing calendar can be found here.
iQiyi recently released trailers and posters for a slew of upcoming shows that will either air exclusively on the site as web dramas and/or on television networks next year. Which shows are you looking forward to most?
She & Her Perfect Husband revolves around the romance between a lawyer (Yang Mi) and her younger, fake husband turned real love interest (Xu Kai). The drama wrapped filming today, and is slated to air on Tencent next year. [Extended]
Gaming drama Falling into Your Smile stars Xu Kai as a professional League of Legends player and Cheng Xiao as a casual player who is eventually signed by an e-sports agency. Like all rom-coms, theirs is also a bickering frenemies to lovers romance. [Extended Synopsis]
Ancient Love Poetry, a fantasy romance drama transcending three lifetimes and spanning 60,000 years, has released a new trailer featuring brilliant CGI and the typical tragic love story. The drama should drop within the next two weeks. [Extended Synopsis]
Court Lady 骊歌行 stars Xu Kai as a profligate youth who chooses to make a name for himself after falling in love with the heroine (Li Yitong). Costars include Tan Jianci, Wu Jiayi and some other Yu Zheng artistes. I’m liking the comedy, so am definitely in for the first quarter.
The 55 episode drama releases 2 episodes every Thursday – Sunday on iQiyi / Tencent.
Most of the stars that have had or will have shows broadcast on Tencent attended the event. The actresses have my utmost respect today – it’s currently 2 degrees Celsius in Nanjing. Which look do you like best?
