Just when I was breathing out in relief that they finally found a suitable candidate to portray Zeng Rou, something else happened. I should’ve looked more carefully with my last update and how I had indeed shared some pictures of Han Dong’s birthday, BUT I actually missed it.
The latest set of dramas had to do with Fang Yi. Or should I say Zhao Ke? Halfway through her scenes, she pulled out of the production due to schedule complications and health issues. So now they have to re-shoot some scenes of her. (Or so I think.) It would be too weird with two Fang Yi (aka two people portraying her).
How did Director Samson get past this obstacle? He let Zhao Yuan Yuan took over the role of Fang Yi as well. (That also meant Fang Yi and the character Yin Hu are portrayed by the same person. Is there going to be a connecting story between the two characters or is that going to be a gap that two people just look similar? Or would that totally be abandoned with lookalikes and let it be?)
Yes, the costumes are being re-used. Why waste it, right? Yet what’s disappointing is I already have an image of the new Fang Yi in my head and am already prepared to see how Zhao Ke would portray the role. But health is important so can’t blame Zhao Ke for withdrawing.
On another note, they finally released official posters for Zeng Rou:
Oh yeah, I guess never shared the official poster for the king, so here goes as well:
