It seems ages ago when Ruby Lin played a high schooler in School Days, a 1995 movie also starring Takeshi Kaneshiro and Jimmy Lin. Twenty years later and she has leveled up from acting to head her own studio, producing a couple of big budget dramas along the way.
Singing All Along 秀丽江山之长歌行 is another one of Ruby Lin's productions and the cast includes herself, Yuan Hong, Li Jia Hang, Wang Yuan Ke, Song Feng Yan, Yu Bo and Kenny Kwan.
Based on a novel by Li Xin, Chang Ge Xing promises to be epic, detailing the lives of significant figures in the Han Dynasty through a very large cast. It depicts a chaotic and war-torn period in between regimes, so expect a lot of action not only from the male actors but also from Ruby Lin who plays a badass female.
At the age of 40, Ruby Lin is definitely aging gracefully because she looks great. However, young is still not young enough that I'm not sure how to process seeing her play a young maiden, for the umpteenth time.
Nevertheless, Chang Ge Xing appears to be an outright historical drama, by the book in its attempt to reenact the past. Personally, I prefer gallant heroes and martial arts also known as wuxia, but if you are interested, the series premieres Jul 2016.
It really is about time given that filming wrapped way back in 2014 (eng subs on Viki).
