Web dramas have really become an experimental ground for new talents. So many get made every year, and there’s always a few that stand out. As I think back to last year’s The Eternal Love and this year’s Oh My Emperor and Cinderella Chef, one thing that all three have in common is time-travel as a theme.
Miss Truth 大唐女法医 is an upcoming Youku web series based on the novel The Tang Dynasty’s Female Forensic Doctor. It follows a present day forensic examiner who is reborn in the Tang Dynasty. Zhou Jieqiong takes the lead in her very first drama. With her traditional good looks and skills playing the pipa, it seems natural that she’d be casted for a drama set in ancient China where she’ll be getting into some crime-solving action. Taiwanese actor Toby Lee will be playing her leading man.
