Is anyone else thinking the same thing as me, time travel, for the millionth time?! Though frankly, Chinese restrictions on the genre may result in that whole aspect being thrown out the window altogether.
Rule the World 独步天下 is a Chinese TV series adapted from a novel by Li Xin 李歆 that has been in circulation since 2006 and ranked as a widely-read favorite similar to Scarlet Heart which also takes place during the Qing Dynasty.
It tells the story of a woman who travels 400 years into the body of Dong Ge, the most beautiful woman in the land, yet she is born with a curse that can make or break a nation. Can a woman from the modern times learn to adapt to a new life and a new romance? Can she escape what's been written in history?
The cast includes Raymond Lam, Tina Tang Yixin, Zhang Rui and Chen Xinyu (Ice Fantasy). Even though I see Tina Tang in every single 'legendary' period drama from Legend of Chusen, Legend of Nine Tails Fox and Legend of Lu Zhen to name a few, I'm quite excited to finally see her in a leading role and this one seems like it could be big.
