The Rise of Phoenixes tells of the heart-wrenching romance between the descendants of two royal families who are destined to become enemies, and the political machinations that are bound to push them further apart.
Starring Chen Kun, Ni Ni, Zhao Lixin, Ni Dahong, Yuan Hong, Wang Ou and Bai Jingting, the 70 episode drama airs daily on Hunan TV beginning tonight. Raw episodes will be uploaded by Croton, and it may also appear on Netflix US.
Chen Kun and Ni Ni’sThe Rise of Phoenixeshas released two TV spots, a bunch of new stills, and also gotten itself a new native title of 天盛长歌 (lit. The Golden Age of Tiansheng). The 70 episode drama is confirmed to air as a daily drama from August 14th.
I am 95% confident the drama has a sad ending in store for us just based on the last line: “I swear upon my father’s grave that regardless of the circumstance I am in, I shall never marry Ning Yi.”
The Rise of Phoenixes 凰权·弈天下 has released stills of the cast, and character descriptions have been translated below.

The Love Book 爱的正确标记法 is an upcoming rom-com focusing on the quirky relationship between an independent career woman, played by Song Jia(Cherry Returns), and her handsome IT guru husband, played by Yuan Hong (Let’s Fall in Love).
The casting is now finalised for The Rise of Phoenixes, the upcoming historical drama starring Chen Kun(Chongqing Hot Pot) as an ambitious prince who has his eyes set on the throne and Ni Ni (Suddenly Seventeen) as an intelligent young woman determined to restore her kingdom.
… IMO, although the characters aren’t terribly original and some of the scenes are a bit of an eye-roll, I find that the majority of the plot follows a logical progression. Characters have their flaws but at least there are times where they pay a logical price for their flaws as opposed to some dramas in the past where this didn’t happen and seemed to detract form the story for me.

I like how balanced everything looks. There’s enough color and decorating to keep me interested but not to the point where I feel that I am watching a peacock mating ritual… also the patterns used are mostly characteristic for the era based on what I can see…
Realm of Love: Long Ballad 秀丽江山 长歌行 is preparing to air July 21st. Starring Ruby Lin, Yuan Hong, Kenny Kwan, Mao Zijun, Li Jiahang, Wang Yuanke, Zong Fengyan, Yu Bo, Dai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, those who have been waiting on this one don’t have much longer to wait.
Realm of Love: Long Ballad 秀丽江山 长歌行 has changed their air date to July 21st from July 26th. Starring Ruby Lin, Yuan Hong, Kenny Kwan, Mao Zijun, Li Jiahang, Wang Yuanke, Zong Fengyan, Yu Bo, Dai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, it’s nice to see a drama changing to an earlier release date after being accustomed to dramas being pushed back… wonder if it has anything to do with catching the media storm about Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo… anyhoo… new trailer below.
There’s a date on it!! It’s official!! No takie-backies!!

Starring Ruby Lin, Yuan Hong, Kenny Kwan, Mao Zijun, Li Jiahang, Wang Yuanke, Zong Fengyan, Yu Bo, Dai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, with how long it has taken for this to air, I am pretty sure I have already seen some of the props and costumes for this production in other dramas that have already aired…
