One of the most anticipated C-dramas of the year, especially for fans of it’s masterpiece prequel Legend of Zhen Huan. While it is hard not to compare and to expect the same standard as it’s predecessor, I still can’t help but hope that they’ll at least retain the same mix of angst and richness in LZH.
For those who haven’t seen LZH, I don’t think you have anything to worry about since it doesn’t seem like Legend of Ruyi will be directly related. Still, I can’t wait to see how Vivian Wu portrays Zhen Huan. Of course it won’t be the same without Sun Li but it wouldn’t make sense to have such a young Empress Dowager anyway.
