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.
除了在我看来多灾多难的《凤囚凰》,于正又制作了另一部剧《延禧攻略》,这部剧因几个原因而备受关注。

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,它与周迅和霍建华主演的《甄执》续集《如懿传》非常相似,因为它不仅与《如懿传》的时间框架相同,而且都讲述了清朝乾隆皇帝的故事。从这个角度来讲,几乎可以肯定这两部剧的造型和服饰一定会十分相似,实际上也的确如此。

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,它标志着TVB视后佘诗曼时隔5年之后再次出演古装剧,令人倍感期待。只需看一眼她那令人印象深刻的职业生涯,显然可以看出她在年代剧中大放异彩,特别是,由她主演的《宫心计》一直被视为经典。对于这位经验丰富的女演员而言,参演有关宫廷政治及后宫争斗的电视剧可能就像去公园散步一样简单,但有趣的是她是以配角的身份加盟于正的这部剧的。

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,于正还邀请了秦岚和聂远出演这部剧,但名义上担纲主角的却是年轻演员吴谨言,她在剧中饰演一位宫女,最终与皇帝上演了一段罗曼史。她似乎是于正最近力捧的演员,因为她还主演了于正制作的另一部剧《朝歌》。
