You may love him or hate him, but there’s no denying Yu Zheng’s past successes with dramas that he has produced, some of which he even wrote himself. Beauty’s Rival in Palace starred Ruby Lin, Palace starred Yang Mi, Legend of Lu Zhen starred Zhao Liying and this year’s summer hit Story of Yanxi Palace starred Wu Jinyan who’s only just gotten her big break after a number of years in the industry.
These are four of Yu Zheng’s best and living proof that he does have a magic touch when it counts from choosing the right drama to having an eye for the right leading lady.
But then there are the not-so-popular Yu Zheng dramas. The success of Story of Yanxi Palace seems to have gotten Yu Zheng into a contemplative mood as he also shares four dramas from his worst times. He laments that the hard work put into these dramas are no different than the rest, but the timing wasn’t right. He urges people to put down their bias to give the shows a chance.
