Busy busy Zhao Liying never takes a break! After the promoting phase with Hua Qian Gu and Best Get Going, our girl is now ready to attack her next big project. This republican drama called Rouge will be filming from now until around the end of the year. Talk about a big project. It is produced by the same company as Tiger Mom, Hot Mom and Servant of Two Masters so I am guessing the drama’s audience should be more mature. Maybe this drama will lead Zhao Liying out of the idol drama genre?
The OTP worked before in the movie Palace where Zhao Liying played the main antagonist while Lu Yi played the emperor. However, this time is very different since Rouge is a republican/spy/anti-Japanese drama centered around romance. I am always excited to see Zhao Liying chose different settings for her dramas because it is always fun to see her adapt perfectly to a new genre (and nailing it)!
Flming started recently and there are a few BTS pics out:
