Lost Love in Times 醉玲珑 is a Chinese TV series based on a novel by Fourteen Nights 十四夜. It is being dubbed as the comeback project for the Journey of Flower team because of the return of Producer Tang Li Jun, Director Lam Yuk Fan, Screenwriter Rao Jun and many others.
William Chang Suk Ping takes the reigns as the art director. He is a highly-accomplished veteran who has brought home an Oscar for The Grandmaster in 2015. He is also the mastermind behind the costumes for the hit drama Eternal Love which also had Lam Yuk Fan onboard as director.
The story follows a fantasy premise about a forbidden love between a sorceress and a prince. It explores time travel which makes it a deja vu of sorts for fans waiting to see Liu Shi Shi in a semblance of her most iconic character in Scarlet Heart. However due to censorship, the story will most likely be tweaked to remove time-travel completely.
A lot of hype is due to the pairing of William Chan (The Mystic Nine) and Cecilia Liu Shi Shi (Imperial Doctress) while the rest of the cast includes Xu Hai Qiao (Detective Samoyeds), Han Xue (War and Beauty), Han Dong (Tian Xia Chang An), Liu Yi Jun (Nirvana in Fire) and Maggie Huang (Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms).
As much as I like the leads and find them gorgeous in anything, their hairstyle is something else and netizens have been quick to liken their costumes to the Teletubbies.
Release Date: Summer 2017 on Dragon TV
