Understated appears the direction for the costume designing of this drama, aside from the ornate toppers on the hair. Official drama posters and new stills are out for period C-drama Lost Love in Times (Zui Ling Long), pairing up very popular actor Liu Shi Shi and William Chan in a first time collaboration for both. Shi Shi plays dual roles, that of a court princess and the main role is a high shaman priestess of a powerful section.
The story is set in the Western Wei dynasty and William’s character is the Crown Prince, exuding royal aura and authority in all his stills. It’s funny how the bottom half of their hair styles is so simple but the effect is marred by a super high crown topper for him and a bird’s nest of protruding pieces for her. Still, the drama is one of the more highly anticipated for 2017 and I’m looking for Shi Shi to do a decent period piece where I don’t want to narratively spork my brains out, as I did for her last outing The Imperial Doctress.
