Cosmetology High injects humor and botox into the Tang

Bringing on the Tang dynasty grove.

Cosmetology High (formerly the Making of a Beauty)  is a surprising mix of humor and even some creativity, a refreshing change from producer Yu Zheng.   The trailer also confirms my suspicion that Yang Rong is amazing and deserves better roles.  The series co-starring Jin Shijia, Zhang Zhehan, Merat, and guest-starring a lot of pretty people airs on Sundays beginning next week.
