Yes, yes and yes! After having to report Jeremy Tsui as a second lead in this and that, it’s great to finally see him take the lead in a costume drama. I don’t know why there’s a cute dog in the picture, maybe it’s his dog, but the dog wishes Jeremy Tsui good luck and high ratings!
On April 15, 2018, Jeremy Tsui (The Legend of Dugu), Viva He Hong Shan (The Avengers), Cao Xi Wen (Longitude 38 Line) and Wayne Lai (Daddy Cool) were in Hengdian World Studios to attend the filming ceremony for Phoenix Game 鳳弈, an upcoming Chinese drama about a palace maid who rises up the ranks in the inner palace. It seems like one of those storylines that will focus more around the women, but I’m still hyped over Jeremy Tsui’s casting. He will be playing a strategist who saves the heroine from trouble when she first arrives at the palace.
Also worth noting is that Hong Kong veteran actor Wayne Lai who has racked up numerous acting accolades over his long and successful career with TVB has joined the cast. It will be his first Mainland Chinese drama.
