Drunken Exquisiteness 醉玲珑 is a Chinese TV series based on a novel of the same name by Fourteen Nights 十四夜 that is being marketed as the comeback project for the Journey of Flower team that includes 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 c-drama even though he has been a veteran in the industry who most recently won an Oscar for The Grandmaster.
It follows a fantasy premise about a forbidden love between a sorceress and a prince and it also explores time travel, much like Scarlet Heart so it'll be like deja vu on steroids to see not only a familiar setup but also Liu Shi Shi as the time traveler from the modern era who finds herself in ancient China surrounded by royalty.
Everything aside, a lot of the hype has to be coming from the cast which includes William Chan, Cecilia Liu Shi Shi and Xu Hai Qiao. As much as I like the leads and find them gorgeous in anything, their hairstyle is something else even c-netizens agree that the official stills need some work. In fact, the photoshopped version (first two stills in this post) looks ten times better.
