What’s Next? Xifei’s Royal Love in the Palace

Anyone remember Peter Ho of Summer’s Desire (2010)? Or from Le Jun Kai (2013)? While he is now a director and screenwriter, he still acts occasionally and will be the main lead in Chinese drama Xifei’s Royal Love in the Palace (2020). This drama also stars He Hong Shan in a marriage of convenience story that sounds promising. As this a Tencent drama, it should be up on youtube and I’m sure it’ll be English subbed.

Synopsis: Qing Lian is content to lead an ordinary life and aspires for a suitor who only has eyes for her, yet is instead forced to marry into the royal family. She discovers her husband He Lian Xin is not the heartless and stone-faced noble he presents himself to be, and secretly helps him navigate the treacherous waters, earning his affection and respect in the process. ~~ Based on Legend of Consort Xi by Jieyu.

Xifei’s Royal Love in the Palace (2020) was adopted from a novel and the synopsis reminds me of other cdramas such as The Story of Ming Lan (2018), where the wife supports her husband behind the scenes. I’m not familiar with the female lead He Hong Shan who seems to have played mostly supporting roles in a lot of dramas such as Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace, but she was also the main lead in 2019’s Legend of the Phoenix.

The director is Lin Yu Fen, who was also the director of the massively popular Eternal Love (2017), not to mention my personal favorite Lost Love in Times (2017) so this is in very capable hands.
