Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace 如懿传 makes its big premiere tomorrow at 8pm. Suddenly, Mondays don’t seem so dreaded anymore especially if you have been waiting for this drama since the first time that it was announced (two years ago?). We get another batch of posters of Zhou Xun and Wallace Huo in traditional Qing Dynasty costumes as Ulanara, the Step Empress and Emperor Qianlong, and I think it’s evident from the consistent promos so far that the level of craftsmanship that went into making this production is no joke. Let’s hope that the rest delivers too.
Aside from the exclusive premiere via streaming website Tencent in China, the show will be available internationally through sites like Youtube and Viki. It will also air via Astro in Malaysia and Brunei, myTV SUPER in Hong Kong, iQiYi Taiwan, Star Chinese Channel and Videoland Television Network in Taiwan.
