The Story of Pearl Girl Trailer

Freedom. I long for freedom” so wishes Zhao Lusi’s character Duan Wu at the beginning. Looking at all the torture and beatings she and her fellow pearl divers had to endure, it’s no wonder all Duan Wu wants is to escape. Yet despite it all, she remains optimistic about grabbing all the opportunities going her way.

If you’re used to seeing the cutesy adorable side of Zhao Lusi – she is after all the queen of light hearted sweet romances (tianchongju 甜宠剧), The Story of Pearl Girl’s newest trailer offers up a glimpse of a darker and mature side of Zhao Lusi as she continues to endure everything thrown her way. Whilst she still manages to look pretty in most of the scenes, you’ll definitely enjoy seeing a much intense version of her as she claws her way to survival in the series.

Meanwhile, at first glance Yan Zijing , the character played by Lusi’s The Long Ballad partner Liu Yuning, appears to be giving off some serious baddie vibes in the drama. In his all black outfits, Liu Yuning looks pretty menacing enough, not to mention he totally nails his sinister face in this one. However it looks like he might be getting a change of heart later in the series to become someone she can depend on.

The Story of Pearl Girl also stars Tang Xiaotian, Shang Wanqing, Tang Zhenchao with special guest appearance by Xie Keyin.
