C-ent Reportedly Planning First Dual Female Lead Period Drama Starring Yang Zi and Li Qin as the Gender Swapped Counterpart to Two Male Lead Dramas Like Word of Honor and The Untamed

So this could either be a big hit or a hot mess, but more from the fandom side then the drama actually being bad. C-ent is reporting a big potential casting news this week, the first ever dual female lead big budget period drama. The two leads are reportedly going to be Yang Zi and Li Qin, and together each have over two dozen dramas under their respective belts, and been the lead in them since the mid-2015 time period. The drama is adapted from the novel Mei Shi (媚世 literal translation is Alluring Life) and is intended to be the female equivalent of hit dual male lead dramas like The Untamed and Word of Honor that lifted those male leads to new popularity levels. The male leads in discussion are Wang Yibo and Tan Jian Ci. If this does happen, and a big IF, I can see the fandom of these two super popular liulang actresses fighting over name rank, scenes, dialogues, and costumes. It’s sure to generate media attention good or bad.
