Drunken Exquisiteness 醉玲珑 is a Chinese TV series based on a novel by Fourteen Nights 十四夜. It is marketed as the comeback project for the Journey of Flower team because of the return of producer Tang Li Jun, director Lin Yu Fen, screenwriter Rao Jun and many others.
William Chang Suk Ping takes the reigns as the art director in his first attempt at a c-drama though he is a veteran in the industry who most recently won an Oscar for The Grandmaster.
The story follows a fantasy premise about a forbidden love between a sorceress and a prince and it explores time travel, much like Scarlet Heart which makes it a deja vu on steroids of sorts for fans waiting to see Liu Shi Shi in the same role.
Nevertheless, a lot of the hype has to be coming from the cast which includes William Chan (The Mystic Nine) Cecilia Liu Shi Shi (Imperial Doctress), Xu Hai Qiao (Detective Samoyeds), Han Xue and Han Dong. As much as I like the leads and find them gorgeous in anything, their hairstyle is something else. Apparently, c-netizens agree as they liken the costumes to the Teletubbies.
