Since The Rise of Phoenixes凰权弈天下has decided to release stills of the entire main cast, I might as well include some short descriptions for each character.
Co-directed by Shen Yan (The First Half of My Life) and Liu Haibo (Chinese Style Relationship), and scripted by Zou Yue (Guardian of Beauty), Wang Pei (I’m Not A Monster) and Qian Mi (Painted Skin II: The Resurrection, drama ver. Guns and Roses), the 70 episode drama is tentatively scheduled for a late-2018 premiere on Dragon TV and Zhejiang TV.
The Rise of Phoenixes has released first stills of the main cast, led by Chen Kun (Beautiful Accident), Ni Ni(Suddenly Seventeen), Zhao Lixin(Chinese Style Relationship) and Ni Dahong (Intrude the Widow Village at Midnight). Continue reading →
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.
Chen Kun‘s (Chongqing Hotpot)The Rise of Phoenixes has finally found its leading actress in Ni Ni(Suddenly Seventeen). This will be the latter’s first television drama role since her debut in Zhang Yimou’s 2011 war film The Flowers of War.
Fun fact: The posters were taken by Chen Man, currently the most sought after fashion photographer in the entertainment industry.
Chen Kun is returning to drama land in a big way – he confirmed a republican espionage drama as his first comeback project, and has now signed on as the male lead in The Rise of Phoenixes凰权·弈天下, the drama adaption of Tianxia Guiyuan‘s novel of the same name.
Seems like The Disguiserhas reinvigorated the espionage genre.
A-list actor Chen Kun (Chongqing Hotpot, Mojin: The Lost Legend) will be returning to drama land with The One Who Escapes 脱身者 after working exclusively in film for almost a decade. He’s one of those really charismatic and attractive stars who also happens to be very good at his craft, so this is one drama I will not miss a single episode of, come hell or high water.
