It’s finally here! Qing dynasty epic Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace <如懿传> has premiered on August 20, dropping its first two episodes on Tencent Video today. The show will air two episodes a day from Monday to Thursday, starting at 8 pm. Hong Kong will be airing the show via myTV SUPER.
Starring Zhou Xun (周迅), Wallace Huo (霍建華), Janine Chang (張鈞甯), Angel Dong Jie (董洁), Xin Zhilei (辛芷蕾), Vivian Wu (邬君梅), and Sweet Li Qin (李沁), Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace had a tumultuous post-production stage. Initially slated for a late 2017 release, Ruyi’s airdate was pushed back numerous times before finally settling with a broadcast date that is one year after its original confirmed time.
Fans are ecstatic that the wait is over, and news media is happy to confirm that they can finally report on the drama. Wallace’s wife, fellow actress Ruby Lin (林心如), is just as excited as everyone else, and the actress updated her social media to promote the show.
Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace is based on the novel The Legend of Ruyi, sequel to The Legend of Zhen Huan <后宫·甄嬛传>, which itself was made into a successful television drama back in 2011.
