Seeing the entourage of princes literally feels like another Scarlet Heart in the making and it’s no wonder they say that the similarities between the two are uncanny, and it’s not just because Cecilia Liu Shishi is once again at the helm. Lost Love in Times revolves around a woman time travelling to ancient China and becoming embroiled in a complicated relationship with many princes though I hear that time travel will be removed to be replaced by something else.

As an added bonus, the role of the heavenly emperor and father of the handsome princes will be played by veteran actor Liu Yi Jun who had commendable performances in Disguiser and Nirvana in Fire.
When asked about the role, he said, “Suddenly having so many sons is a happy thing, I spent a lot of time ‘getting to know them,’ matching the actor with their characters one by one. Next time I’d like to join them too, to see what they are laughing about. It’s delightful to act together with such a young cast, the entire cast is exceptionally happy.
