      Really? I am not familiar with the original work, but it would be disappointing if they did. The cast is really good so I was actually hoping to watch it!

    • Is this adapted from a book? Is the book title also “Princess WeiYoung”? I’m really interested with chinese novels. Sad thing only is when live action adaptation can’t exceed the readers’ expectations (which happens alot).

    This looks really interesting. Tang Yan reminds me of Xena: The Warrior Princess in the first pic🙂 also, didn’t we just see her and Luo jin in like two dramas before this? Not complaining.. just? Welcome back Vaness Wu I’VE MISSED YOU! Kind of wish she ends up with him lol

      Haha, I didn’t know who Xena was so had to google! I see the similarity, but of course cdrama doesn’t show as much cleavage😉 Yes we did! Those two did way too many collabs together now. Luo Jin’s character is so boring I am sure I will have a second lead syndrom when I will watch it. But the ending is quiet predictable and unlike Diamond Lover, I don’t expect a last minute twist.

        I love Xena! And yes, Luo Jin is great, but I can really get into his characters, but I still watch them. I’ve already prepped myself to second lead syndrome and let’s not bring up the last minute Diamond Lover twist (never happened)

      Agree! I was never into any of his projects, but he is a great actor nonetheless. Also, we can count on the chemistry between him and Tang Yan😛

  3. Thankies for this news update~

    Wow. This is the first I’ve seen Vaness Wu in traditional clothing, not bad~
    Just curious~ In one of the pictures, why is Tang Yan feeding the lady? What’s that about? Is that a fan?

    • archidisign says:

      I know. Dare I say Vanness looks the best out of the three leads? hehe
      Tang Yan was feeding a fan. I think it was to celebrate the Dongzhi Festival (Winter Solstice Festival) which happened on December 22nd. I saw a lot of celebrities posting dumpling pictures on their weibo too!😛

      Yes it is v__v I know, Chinese dramas are starting to reusing WAY too much the old pairings. We need new blood! I really like Luo Jin though and he looks especially good in period dramas :3 just not sure about these character stills so far.

    It’s weird that they’re collaborating again, especially right after Diamond Lover…..now i really wonder if they’re dating lol. if they’re not, it’s really not helping the rumors about these two that keep resurfacing every time they collab, which cause a lot of fanwars between LJ and TY fans since 2013.

    • archidisign says:

      I didn’t realize there were fanwars until you mentionned, but of course, it is natural😛 The thing is, even with so many collaborations together, they still don’t give me an OTP feeling to them. Do you know what is their most popular collaboration together? I think in 2013, Tang Yan was still dating Roy Qiu.

      • jasmine4 says:

        Roy qiu and tang yan broke up in 2013. If I remember correctly, it was right before Agent X (their 2nd collab). I think Luan Shi Jia Ren and Agent X had an equal amount of popularity, but Diamond Lover boosted their popularity even more, and they’ve become like one of the most popular TY ships after Wallace/TY. I think they have a strong “夫妻相” dynamic lol

      • archidisign says:

        Probably, after all their projects!! I never tried neither of those projects, but in Diamond Lovers, TY definitely had more chemistry with Luo Jin than with Rain. xD but if I had to ship TY with someone, I would ship her with Wallace first hehe, more 夫妻相😛

    I am loving TY and LJ in this drama. In fact, LJ is doing a great job , shining in his rendition of a smart, good hearted , peaceful TJ. Anyone else would have disappeared because of Wei Young’s (TY) strong character. I have seen many second lead characters written the same way as TJ and they are usually boring, leaden.
    As for the rest of the characters, Prince Of Nan An (VW), Chiyun Nan, Li Men De, Chiyun Rou, L Chang Ru, LC Le and the others, they make this drama unforgettable. I am watching it unsubbed and subbed on English and rewatching it.
    Loving PWY a lot.
