Three cheers for a period drama that doesn’t involve the palace
The Great Shaolin 少林问道 has released a trailer. Starring Zhou Yiwei, Guo Xiaoting, Guo Jingfei, He Saifei, Shi An, Dong Yanlin, Zhang Zhixian, Fan Yutong, and Feng Jiayi. This drama is set in the Ming dynasty.
More stills below the cut.
This brings me to the question of what is the point of decorating your armor so much when you’re just going to get it hacked at in battle.
TIL that spotted cutouts were a fad during the Ming dynasty.
Some of the color schemes are a bit gritty but it’s not a palace drama.
Oh. Just girly things like playing musical instruments at unearthly hours of the night…
You thought acting as a male character for a Qing dynasty drama was bad. This guy had to go all-out bald.
Guo Xiaoting starts working outside of Tangren.
… and the stills are pretty encouraging so far…
ZOMG wait!! That was a phoenix crown on your head in the trailer! It feels like forever since I’ve seen one of those!!
Well… there has to be fighting… It’s a Shaolin drama…
