Filming has started for high profile 2019 period C-drama The Story of Ming Lan, with the mouthful Chinese title of 知否知否应是绿肥红瘦 (Zhi Fou Zhi Fou Ying Shi Lv Fei Hong Shou which means Don’t you know? The Green should be Plump and the Red Lean). It’s adapted from a popular novel much like many recent period C-dramas, and this one gets the added publicity of starring two famous leads Feng Shao Feng and Zhao Li Ying, who are also currently caught up in dating in real life rumors. I’m curious to see how this translates into onscreen chemistry but it’s also worth keeping an eye on to see if Zhao Li Ying’s incredible streak of picking successful C-dramas continues. The character costume posters are out for the two leads and I hope Zhao Li Ying’s female lead Ming Lan keeps her hair down for most of the drama, this high arrangement look doesn’t work on Zhao Li Ying since she’s so petite with a very small face.
