The popular Hong Kong TVB drama, Beyond the Realm of Conscience 宮心計, which aired more than ten years ago in 2009 is getting its much anticipated sequel titled, Deep in the Realm of Conscience 宮心計 2.
Beyond the Realm of Conscience 宮心計 is the story about Lau Samho and her different relationships in the Imperial Palace. The drama continued with Samho being close to Kamling who schemes her way to be one of Li Yi’s concubines. Kamling eventually sees her friend, Samho, as a threat and wants to get rid of her as well. It was this toxic friendship between Charmaine Sheh and Tavia Yeung‘s characters that won over the audience.
The 36-episode sequel will have some cast from Beyond the Realm of Conscience 宮心計 reprise their roles and there will be new faces in headlining roles. While it is also set in the Tang Dynasty, it tells a different story about the emperor and the three women in his life. Nevertheless, it seems that there will be no shortage of palace infighting and schemes just from the number of women in the cast.
Deep in the Realm of Conscience 宮心計 2 will star Steven Ma as the Emperor, Alice Chan as his nemesis, Nancy Wu as Empress Wang, Chrissie Chau as Consort Cheng and Annie Liu as a palace maid. It also stars Kenneth Ma, Edwin Siu, Jacqueline Wong, Susan Tse, Candy Lo, Akina Hong, Angie Cheong, Pinky Cheung, Mary Hon and with special guest star, Michelle Yim.
