If that poster didn’t have you clicking fast enough, just wait until you see the rest! The team behind the newest addition to the Novoland franchise, Novoland: Pearl Eclipse 斛珠夫人 just gave us all a little peek at what’s in store for viewers with these gorgeous posters below. It’s a wee bit different from the usual angsty dark tones in some of its earlier offerings, but with a title like Pearl Eclipse, the colour palette change to aquatic shades is certainly quite apt.
If you can still remember, the drama was actually included in the line-up of dramas announced by Tencent (Pearl Eclipse will air exclusively on Tencent) for 2019 together with the fact that megastar Yang Mi has signed on to star in Pearl Eclipse to get the buzz rolling early on, so this technically isn’t something new-new. What wasn’t part of that announcement though are the rest of the cast.
Nabbing the coveted male lead role of Fang Zhu is William Chan, Yang Mi’s cast mate and Dilraba Dilmurat’s love interest in the hit series Swords of Legends. But wait, as the story talks of an orphaned girl Haishi (Yang Mi) posing as a man to become a disciple of minister Fang Zhu who later on finds herself caught in a love triangle between Fang Zhu and the young emperor Fang Zhu serves no less, that means that there has to be a second male lead role! Well Intended Love actor Xu Kaicheng takes up the mantle of the emperor and will indeed be giving Yangmi’s character quite a conundrum when she has to make a choice in the end. The drama also features Chen Xiaoyun, Wang Sen and Yuan Yuxuan.
Anyway, since filming activities for Yangmi’s drama Thank You Doctor have unfortunately been placed on an indefinite hiatus, both the actress and her co-star William Chan have already been spotted shooting scenes at Hengdian since May 3.
I like the styling here! Hoping it will turn out really good!
These costumes give me Legend of Fuyao vibes.
When I saw William Chan's name, EW! YIKES!
When I saw their poster, doesn't it look like some of her old drama posters? Fuyao and Ten Miles? Is it same background or color grading why it look so familiar? Doesn't feel like something brand new.
The poster of her with the bow and arrow, that's so princess agents didn't ZLY took a picture with the same exact pose?
I like YM but I am not excited for this.
In 2018, Novoland:Pearl Eclipse author Xiao Ruse filed a lawsuit against Xiao Xiang Dong Er for allegedly plagiarising some components in her Princess Agents novel from whence the popular drama series is based. As a counter, Xiao Xiang Dong Er then requested to have the allegations thrown out because according to the author, a similarity of a thousand words does not constitute plagiarism.
Well now after two years, the court has finally handed down its ruling in favour of Xiao Ruse, declaring that as long as the plagiarised paragraph finds its way into an independent work, the original author has the right to claim copyright protection.
Moreover, in recompense, Xiao Xiang Dong Er is also mandated by the courts to (1) scrub the plagiarised content from her Princess Agents novel, (2) her publishers must also refrain from publishing further any books containing the plagiarised content, (3) issue a public apology to Xiao Ruse which must be published on Weibo for ten days and that (4) compensation for economic losses must be given to Xiao Ruse amounting to nearly 50,000 yuan.
Really?? I think the posters look amazinggg and they're different from traditional historical drama designs. The colors make all the difference …
Sorry for my rambling. Why don't you like William tho?
there are so many William Chan haters on this site I don't understand why.
Still bummed out about thank you doctor. Now can’t wait for this one.
the costumes with embroidery are exquisite, but the ones without the detail like the last poster, and william chan's costume in the his poster with yangmi look like freaking polyester. reminds me of pillow book…
Nice costumes … can’t wait just hope there is some comedy and not 50+ episode of draggy angst and boring palace politics
I am a William Chan fan so I will probably watch this but I don't think I will like this more than Lost Love in Times or Legend of Fu Yao (Ethan Juan was the only reason I watched that drama.)
Wonder how long Yang Mi will take on pre-teen-teenager roles.
Probs until she is near 40 🙂
I didn't know Thank you Doctor aired already!
Bitches follow Yang Mi just to HATE on this successful young looking grown ass BOSS of a woman. Keep rising Queen myself and Millions of your International fans will be supporting!!! Like we did all of your other fantastic Classic and HIT Dramas.
