Several historical dramas have been dropping promos lately, one of which include Tang Yan’s Yan Yun Tai that marks her return to the genre after Princess Weiyoung. Not to be left behind is her hubby Luo Jin who also has a big historical coming up. Royal Nirvana 鹤唳华亭 recently introduced its huge lineup of casts along with a sneak peek into the politicking behind a story about the unfavored crown prince.
From what I heard about the novel that it’s based on, the ending isn’t really a happy one and weirdly enough (probably thanks to Scarlet Heart), it’s exactly what I find appealing about this drama. Royal Nirvana seems to boast quite a prolific cast that includes a leading lady with ulterior motives. After her amazing role in Bloody Romance, there’s no doubt that Li Yitong is one of the actresses to watch for.
Also in the cast are Huang Zhizhong, Zhang Zhijian, Miao Pu, Jin Han, Zheng Yecheng, Wang Yu, Wang Jinsong, Liu Dekai, Cheng Xiaomeng, Qiu Xinzhi, Bao Dazhi, Wang Jianguo, Hao Lei, Feng Bo, Xia Nan and Wang Ruizi. That’s a lot of familiar faces from esteemed veterans like Wang Jinsong to up and coming actors like No Secrets star Jin Han and An Oriental Odyssey star Zheng Yecheng.
