Premiering on November 20, The Queen of News released character posters on their official social media account. The cast dressed in Victorian-style fashions, with the main actresses wearing different crowns in line with the queen theme.
Featured in the center is Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), who wore an eye-catching black dress with large princess sleeves and translucent lace bodice showing off her trim waist. Her serious expression was regal and gave the feeling of the arrival of a queen. In sharp contrast to Charmaine, Selena Lee (李施嬅) wore a white dress. Samantha Ko (高海寧) wore a plunging velvet blue dress and beautiful sapphire jewelry. Regina Ho (何依婷) and Venus Wong (王敏奕) were dressed in white and burgundy respectively.
Charmaine and Selena immediately shared the character posters to help promote the drama. Charmaine added the caption, “Think like a lady, Act like a queen.” Selena shared the same photos with the caption, “To be or not to be a Queen?” Charmaine commented she really liked her dress and had worked with the costume designer on styling. “I chose black because I felt it represented authority, a cold demeanor, and stubbornness which is in line with my character.”
Producer Chung Cheng (鍾澍佳) shared they chose a Victorian theme for styling because they wanted to enhance the feeling of royalty. “Our initial plan was to film a career themed drama. I think the audience is already well aware of how the news works. What’s left is how to visually deliver the theme of the Queen and a battlefield to the audience. I discussed with Leo, a colleague who was working on the posters and we decided on this image.” Chung Cheng is very pleased with the end result as the team had worked hard, using almost three days to capture these pictures.
