“Queen Dugu” Reunites Joe Chen and Chen Xiao After “Swordsman”

Things are about get real as Joe Chen (Stay With Me) confirms for Queen Dugu 独孤皇后 opposite Chen Xiao (ROCH) in a reunion of sorts from Swordsman. Filming is scheduled to begin early next year in Hengdian.
I tend to get pumped over every single thing but I promise that I mean it when I say that I really like the casting. Joe Chen has been a chameleon from rom-coms to drama to Dong Fang Bu Bai, so taking on the role of an queen is probably a walk in the park while Chen Xiao who excels in period dramas is always a welcome sight.
Interestingly, this drama tells the story of Dugu Jialuo and Yang Jian, the same characters in Legend of Dugu starring Hu Bing Qing and Zhang Dan Feng. If I were judge the book by its cover, I’m wholly onboard with Queen Dugu but a good story ultimately makes all the difference.
