Princess Jieyou 解忧公主 starring Zhang Xinyi as the title character is set to premiere on Feb 18 along with many other upcoming wuxia series to welcome the Chinese new year. Doing away with the highly-commercialized productions prevalent nowadays, the styling here seems more rough around the edges and I like it. It tells the story of Liu Jieyou, a Han Dynasty princess sent to the Western regions as part of a marriage alliance.
Princess Jieyou has spent two years in the back burner so finally, it will grace our screens. I don’t know most of the cast except for the two leading man Yuan Hong (Hua Xu Yin) and Mickey Yuan Wenkang (The Imperial Doctress) but looking forward to it nonetheless.
