I am quite interested in checking out The Shadow of Empress Wu because YesAsia write-up makes it sound up my alley.

Also, it apparently has Vincent Jiao in the cast and I have an unhealthy crush on him, and too few of his dramas are subbed. This MV for his character pretty much made me rabidly salivate on my screen:



So, anyone seen it/heard anything about it? And, how big a role does Vincent Jiao has in it? If it's an excellent drama, I'll get it even if his role is a glorified cameo, but it will certainly make my choice easier to know he has a significant role.

And while we are on dramas I should check out, how about The Book and the Sword 2009? I read it ages ago and barely remember anything but I do remember I liked it. And it certainly looks insanely pretty. Check out this clip:

I have just discovered that

a. Ady An and Feng Shao Feng starred in a drama together as an OTP
b. It is a period drama set at the turn of 20th century
c. With looooooooots of angst and dramatics and makjang craziness - evil cowives! (only in a period cdrama - it's my biggest hurdle to checking this out, though I have much less problem with it in purely period context than when a modern person travels back into the past and decides to follow that sort of thing a la A Step Into the Past. I may get over it because supposedly he only loves Ady. We'll see), OTP interlopers! attempted murders! scary hairpieces!
d. He's hired to seduce her but falls for her and misery and make-outs follow
e. THERE ARE SUBS

If you know me, this is sort of like a fanfic-type dream come true. (Even cooler than my discovery that Ady played Peter Ho's OTP in a period drama which also starred Blue Lan and which has subs - someone is saving her pennies).

It's called Four Women Conflict and here is a pretty dramatic MV:



Here is another, which is a little less dramatic but still impossibly pretty:



There are both official dvds and youtube-subbed (I think) links available.

I sense an obsession about to start. If I ever finish the rest of my insane backlog that is.

In news of other potentially interesting dramas, I never realized that Vincent Jiao was one of the two protagonists in Wind and Cloud 2. I have a big crush on him. Hmmmm (it also stars Peter Ho, my current obsession, but his haircut in that one is scary so that detracts. Yes, am very shallow).
