Lost Love in Times 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, which makes it a deja vu of sorts for fans waiting to see Liu Shi Shi in the exact same role as her smashing hit drama Scarlet Heart.
A lot of hype is due to the pairing of William Chan (The Mystic Nine) and Cecilia Liu Shi Shi (Imperial Doctress). The rest of the cast includes Xu Hai Qiao (Detective Samoyeds) and Han Xue (War and Beauty), Han Dong (Tian Xia Chang An) and Liu Yi Jun (Nirvana in Fire).
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.
