I’ve seen so many disappointing C-dramas to expect much from upcoming period drama Braveness of the Ming. I’m only following along with the filming since it’s K-actress Park Min Young‘s first C-drama and she looks so unexpectedly fantastic in this role it keeps me curious to see more. All I’ve seen are official and BTS stills of Park Min Young in character as the leading lady to romance leading man Hans Zhang, and normally Hans is always reliable in looking good for a period role but this time Park Min Young is totally outshining him.
The production released a second batch of official character stills with the same thematic element of a moonlit night backdrop, fitting for the drama with a Chinese title of Imperial Guard Night Travels. The costumes continue to be artfully eye-catching without being gaudy, colorful without being garish. There’s suitable embroidery, contrasting or similar tone layering, and a gamut of colors that make each character standout in unique visual cues. I really like it so much I hope this particular costume fitting team keeps getting more C-drama gigs in the future.
