The Glory of Tang Dynasty
Okay, so I’ve been in a crazy book slump recently and that extends all the way to a strange drama slump. Work’s been crazy crazy stressful and I’ve just not been in the mood for watching nor reading anything… Except for Chinese dramas. Scratch that, one specific drama to be exact. It’s the strangest kind of slump that I’ve ever been in, but well. Maybe my brain got rewired and decided that it was time for me to get in touch with my Chinese roots, again.
So where do I start… I found out about The Glory of Tang Dynasty through weibo and watched the trailer on youtube. (If you’re new to c-dramas, by trailer, I really mean a 15 to 30min sneak preview of the entire show) From the trailer alone, it looked pretty epic, costuming, cinematography, plot… And interestingly enough, there wasn’t an A-lister cast to back up the drama. You have experienced actors but the main cast generally comprised of good actors, who weren’t exactly popular, especially amongst the younger crowd. That plus the fact that the male lead is pretty much new to the scene (his first lead role!). Fast forward ReadNow
