Rule the World 独步天下 begins filming as it holds its opening ceremony on Nov. 15 in Hengdian, China. A number of the cast and crew were in attendance and official posters were released to confirm Hong Kong star Raymond Lam, Tina Tang Yixin (Legend of Chusen), Zhang Rui and Chen Xinyu (Ice Fantasy) as the leads.
It is Raymond Lam’s first time working with everyone in the project and also his first time acting in a historical drama set during the Qing Dynasty. For those who don’t know, it means that he will be shaving his head for the sake of the role.
Rule the World is based on a popular novel and Tina Tang Yixin even mentioned that she has long been a fan and that she is honored to be able to play Dong Ge, the most beautiful woman in the land.
It’s refreshing to see positive reaction to the casting news, which is no surprise given that Raymond Lam and Tina Tang Yixin are what I would call someone whose got the talent and the good looks and they even have expansive resumes to prove it especially when it comes to historical dramas. I’m quite excited for this.
