The latest in the rumor mill pairs together Hu Ge and Zhao Li Ying as the leads for Su Dong Po, an upcoming historical drama that is said to start filming very soon. The story of Su Dong Po who is an important figure during the Song Dynasty has been made into a drama before with the most recent being the 2012 Chinese TV series starring Lu Yi and Ruby Lin.
I don’t think it even matters what project these two sign up for as long as it happens. Even during the 11th Golden Eagle Awards, He Jiong was already teasing them by saying that he was very happy to finally see them collaborating (hezuo 合作 in Chinese) with each other, though what he really meant was that they were sitting together (also pronounced hezuo 合坐 in Chinese).
Sadly, I feel like the chances of the news being true are quite low, but I’m posting it anyway in the hope that it is. Hu Ge has been taking an indefinite break from showbiz, and Zhao Li Ying already has two dramas Legend of Minglan and Our Glamorous Time coming up. But picture this, the stars of Nirvana in Fire and Journey of Flower in one drama, it’s bound to amazing.
