It looks like Xu Kai, who played Fucha Fuheng in Story Of Yanxi Palace, is the first confirmed cast member of Yu Zheng’s latest production, Sheng Tang Gong Lue 盛唐攻略. It’s not yet clear what role he plays, but the sister production of Yanxi Palace will focus more on the lives of people outside of the imperial court during the Tang Dynasty.
Yu Zheng recently shared a photo saying, “All the members attended the first script reading.” We can see Xu Kai on the rightmost staring down intently at the script.
Yu Zheng has recently set an ultimatum when it comes to script reading. He said that in the future, the main cast of his dramas should be present and participate in the script reading. Those who don’t attend would be seen as disrespecting the drama and are just waiting to replaced. However, Yu Zheng clarified that what he said wasn’t meant to single out or refer to anyone. Given Yu Zheng’s stance, we can assume that the main cast is in the photo too.
