Aside from Untouchable Lover, which is looking like a walking disaster the more things I learn about it, Story of Yanxi Palace 延禧攻略 is another one of Yu Zheng's projects that is gaining attention for a couple reasons.
除了在我看來多災多難的《鳳囚凰》,于正又制作了另一部劇《延禧攻略》,這部劇因幾個原因而備受關注。

First, it bears a striking resemblance to the sequel to Legend of Zhen Huan starring Zhou Xun and Wallace Huo as it not only revolves around the same timeframe but even features the same Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty. In that sense, it's practically a given that there are bound to be similarities in styling and costumes, and there are.
首先,它與周迅和霍建華主演的《甄嬛傳》續集《如懿傳》非常相似,因為它不僅與《如懿傳》的時間框架相同,而且都講述了清朝乾隆皇帝的故事。從這個角度來講,幾乎可以肯定這兩部劇的造型和服飾一定會十分相似,實際上也的確如此。

Second, it marks TVB queen Charmaine Sheh's highly-anticipated return to costume dramas after five years. Just one look at her impressive career and it's easy to see that she shines in period pieces, most notably Beyond the Realm of Conscience which continues to be regarded as a classic. Palace politics and infighting amongst consorts would probably be a walk down the park for the veteran actress though it's interesting that she has joined Yu Zheng's drama in a supporting role.
第二,它標志著TVB視后佘詩曼時隔5年之后再次出演古裝劇,令人倍感期待。只需看一眼她那令人印象深刻的職業生涯,顯然可以看出她在年代劇中大放異彩,特別是,由她主演的《宮心計》一直被視為經典。對于這位經驗豐富的女演員而言,參演有關宮廷政治及后宮爭斗的電視劇可能就像去公園散步一樣簡單,但有趣的是她是以配角的身份加盟于正的這部劇的。

And she's not the only one as Yu Zheng has actually gotten Qin Lan and Nie Yuan to sign on while the titular lead falls in the shoulders of young actress Wu Jin Yan, who plays a palace maid that eventually falls into a romance with the Emperor. She definitely seems to be Yu Zheng's goto actress these days as she also headlines Zhao Ge, which is another one of his productions.
而且不止是她,于正還邀請了秦嵐和聶遠出演這部劇,但名義上擔綱主角的卻是年輕演員吳謹言,她在劇中飾演一位宮女,最終與皇帝上演了一段羅曼史。她似乎是于正最近力捧的演員,因為她還主演了于正制作的另一部劇《朝歌》。
