Heavy Sweetness, Ash-Like Frost is an upcoming fantasy drama starring Yang Zi (Legend of the Dragon Pearl), Deng Lun (Ode to Joy 2) and Luo Yunxi (A Life Time Love) as celestial beings who get involved in a love triangle.
After rain, the flowering crab-apple turns into rouge 海棠经雨胭脂透 has released stills of the cast, and features Deng Lun (Ode to Joy 2), Li Yitong (Legend of the Condor Heroes 17) and Ying Haoming (Grandmaster of Taichi) in a messy love triangle set in the republican era.
When was the last time a woman sang the exciting OP about ruling the world? Props to Princess Agents for breaking the mold of a fastbeat male opening song and a romantic female ending song.
Featuring an ancient drama female lead with an actual goal in mind (and to free the slaves that she was once a part of, no less), and whose romantic deal breaker is politics, this could very well be Zhao Liying’s breakthrough role to launch her out of cutesy roles. OP is by Zhang Bichen and Zhao Liying.
Yang Zi will be reuniting with the producers of Great Yangko in new period fantasy Heavy Sweetness, Ash-Like Frost 香蜜沉沉烬如霜, based on the novel of the same name by Dian Xian. Deng Lun (Ode to Joy 2) and Kenny Kwan (The Legend of the Flying Daggers) costar as her love interests.
Princess Agents 特工皇妃楚乔传 has released this production video that has been out for a while. Starring Zhao Liying, Lin Gengxin, Dou Xiao, Deng Lun, Li Qin, and Niu Junfeng, thought I would make a post.
Princess Agents 特工皇妃楚乔传 has released even more stills. Starring Zhao Liying, Lin Gengxin, Dou Xiao, Deng Lun, Li Qin, and Niu Junfeng, not exactly an expert on the costuming of this time period but at least some of the costumes seem to mimic some of the images I have seen in the past for this era with more modern styling as opposed to a “generic hanfu” look (1, 2, 3, 4).
More below the cut.
