Yu Zheng Assembles “Story of Yanxi Palace” Cast for New Drama “Chuan Jia”
Riding on the success of last year’s summer hit Story of Yanxi Palace <延禧攻略>, Yu Zheng (于正) has decided on his next move—inviting the cast back for his latest production, Chuan Jia <传家>.
Chuan Jia—literally “Heritage”—will reunite Story of Yanxi Palace stars Qin Lan ( 秦岚), Wu Jinyan (吴谨言), Nie Yuan (聂远), Charmaine Sheh (佘诗曼), Tan Zhuo (谭卓), and more.
Set in the early 1920’s, Chuan Jia centers on a business family who owns a successful department chain in Shanghai. It follows the three Yi sisters: eldest Yi Zhongling (Qin Lan) is calm and wise; second eldest Yi Zhongyu (Wu Jinyan) is smart and resourceful; and youngest Yi Zhongxiu (Zhang Nan 张南) breathes new life in the Yi family with her overseas upbringing. Amidst the political turmoil, the three sisters promise to stay together and protect their father’s empire.
Chuan Jia will also include new cast members, including Han Geng (韩庚) and Ryan Zheng (郑恺).
But of course, one cannot be known as a Yu Zheng drama without actual drama. Instead of requesting for a new Weibo verified account, Yu Zheng updated the official Story of Yanxi Palace Weibo page into Chuan Jia’s official page, changing the profile and the header. Fans of Yanxi grew extremely upset with this move, exclaiming that Yu Zheng and his team were being disrespectful to Yanxi fans.
Chuan Jia has already commenced filming in Hengdian World Studios.
