Although currently "Destined" and "Snow Eagle Lord" and other costume dramas are gaining momentum, their achievements are also impressive enough. However, compared to the upcoming lineup of dramas set to premiere in the summer season, they are clearly just an appetizer.
Aside from highly anticipated works like "The Longest Promise" and "Lost You Forever," there is also a quality production called "Zhuo Zhuo Feng Liu," starring Feng Shaofeng and Jing Tian. With its strong production value, compelling story, and talented cast, especially after the release of its trailer in recent days, it has gained even more attention.
The TV drama "Zhuo Zhuo Feng Liu" is directed by the powerhouse director Wen Deguang. This director has previously created acclaimed works such as "Dr. Tang." The collaborating screenwriter Wang Hong is also a leading figure in the industry.
In addition to that, with the main storyline focusing on the growth and aspirations of our female protagonist who strives for success in her career as an official named Mu Zhuohua, as well as her redemption and love affair with Liu Yan, a warrior burdened with national grudges, who fights valiantly on bloody battlefields; this story truly embodies a captivating narrative.
In this first teaser trailer, Jing Tian portrays both male and female appearances for her character. Her male attire exudes resolute elegance while her everyday female attire showcases gracefulness unparalleled beauty. Moreover, based on the content presented in the trailer itself, Jing Tian skillfully embodies her role by expressing her character's determination and courage to rebel against traditional feudal norms to utmost perfection - truly refreshing.
As one of today's outstanding Chinese young actresses, Jing Tian is often referred to as the epitome of elegance - a true embodiment of femininity She has collaborated with numerous A-listers throughout her career, but it was not until her previous work "Rattan" that she truly rose to great popularity. This time, she returns to her comfort zone of period dramas and delivers an even more outstanding performance overall – will leaving the audience immensely satisfied.
As for Feng Shaofeng, who takes on the role of the male lead, his performance in costume dramas over the past few years has not been particularly impressive. While his portrayal of an emperor exuded a domineering style in "The Imperial Age," it can be said that his performance in "Shining Just for You" was nothing short of a disaster. His slightly bloated figure and lackluster costume design in that drama completely overshadowed his previous image as a handsome costume drama actor.
However, in the teaser trailer for "Zhuo Zhuo Feng Liu," Feng Shaofeng not only successfully slimmed down, but also appeared full of vitality and noticeably better than his previous work. Dressed in dark-toned clothing with clean-cut hair styling, he has returned to peak handsomeness, reminiscent of his appearance in "The Story of Ming Lan." It's truly eye-catching.
Furthermore, the pairing of Feng Shaofeng and Jing Tian is undoubtedly a remarkable romance drama power couple. Both possess matching talents and skills, which are evident from the trailer and stills released so far, making them a screen couple worth looking forward to.
In addition to the two main leads, several supporting characters make their appearance in the first teaser trailer for "Zhuo Zhuo Feng Liu." Among them are Wang Likun - known as the natural beauty without makeup", Xu Haiqiao - a handsome costume drama actor, and rising young star Zhou Yiran. These three individuals can be considered familiar faces to us all; each possessing exceptional looks and acting abilities.
Firstly, let's talk about Wang Likun. Although she faced some negative publicity recently, her successful participation in the new drama series "Infernal Affairs" seems to have helped her emerge from any controversies surrounding her name. As an established goddess of costume romance dramas with delicate facial features and a refreshing temperament. In "Zhuo Zhuo Feng Liu," Wang Likun dons exquisite palace attire, showcasing the beauty of ancient elegance to the fullest.
Furthermore, let's talk about Xu Haiqiao, another actor whom we are all familiar with. With his handsome features and exceptional appearance in period costumes. His solid acting skills always enable him to portray characters perfectly. In "Love Between Fairy and Devil" last year, his portrayal of Rong Hao, a character with both hidden darkness and deep affection - evoked a love-hate relationship among viewers. Therefore, his performance in the new drama is highly anticipated.
Lastly, there is Zhou Yiran. As an up-and-coming young actor who has risen rapidly over the past two years, Zhou Yiran possesses incredibly handsome facial features and displays solid acting abilities. His role as Qiao Qiqi in "The Bond" left a profound impression on people's minds. Moreover, he has secured the role of Tang San, the male lead in the recently started filming of "The Land of Warriors." The future looks bright for him indeed. In "Zhuo Zhuo Feng Liu," Zhou Yiran appears in a striking red costume that exudes handsomeness and strongly resonates with his character, definitely surpassing everyone's expectations.
With its distribution license obtained at the beginning of May, "Zhuo Zhuo Feng Liu" is expected to air during the latter half of summer. With its overall production quality, gripping storyline,and notable lineup led by Feng Shaofeng and Jing Tian, it possesses the potential to become a top-rated drama. Particularly, the drama's focus on inspirational women in ancient times and palace intrigue elements have the possibility of propelling it into becoming yet another phenomenal costume drama.
