From the moment it was announced, I was excited to watch Legend of Fuyao 扶摇皇后 for reasons that are probably the same as everybody else – Yang Mi. The show has dropped a trailer and oh my goodness, is it possible to feel even more hyped?
Yang Mi channels a level of badassery that is completely different from her previous role as Bai Qian in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms and that one scene with the black blindfold feels especially symbolic.
Yang Mi is Queen Fuyao (probably not at the beginning) and the journey to get there seems fraught with intense screaming, bloodshed and pain that leaves her crazed to the point of… killing the main guy?
I feel obliged to speak about Ethan Ruan too because he may not be the reason that I will be watching this, but hey, he might pull a Mark Chao with a career-changing performance.
I know that there have been too many ‘what could have beens’ that promised masterpieces and fell flat, but I’m really convinced that this is going to be a hit. Yang Mi certainly seems to be acting her socks off. There is no air date yet, and so we wait.
Looking forward I think drama will be a hit!
I don’t think so. The Negotiator was a huge miss. Yang Mi’s acting seems to be declining. She looks over the top in the trailer. I wouldn’t have such high expectation. That’s not why 3l3w was a hit. People had little expectation.
I enjoyed 3l3w not due to YM but MC..I thought YM's acting was just mediocre but I liked the styling of her costumes..and i'm getting the same vibes with this one but not so sure about ER, i'll watch a few epi to see if he will 'draw' me in like MC did.
I believe it will be a hit despite since this trailer has many people excited. I am a new fan of YM (having only started to like her after 3L3WTMPB) but skipped the Negotiator because it wasn’t my kind of show. I am not going to judge Fuyao until I see it but the trailer did its job and it looks amazing. Just found out that the novel will be translated and publish here too.
I like the trailer & I think it will be a hit. I love her look in this drama – the hairstyle here suits her better than "3L3W…" ER is a great actor. Hopefully I won't be disappointed.
Wow! I'm excited for this drama! Looks bad-ass as hell!!
I read elsewhere some people think YM does not look evil, I totally disagree bc she nailed it. I've seen much worse, especially if an actress look like nothing else but a cute rabbit and she tries to look evil…
I hope they make the story clear and reasonable why the main actress would turn out that way though, it seems evil main leading actress is becoming a big thing now. But the storyline and reasons behind it have never been satisfying before.
Those gifs are stunning!
I'm not exactly a fan of Yang Mi's acting but she knows how to pick a hit so I think this will be another success for her.
