The historical epic, which also costars Hu Jun (胡軍), Steven Ma (馬浚偉), and Ray Lui (呂良偉). The Legend of Kublai Khan is Charmaine and Steven’s first mainland Chinese drama since leaving TVB’s management respectively in 2011 and 2012.

Earlier in December, Charmaine, Steven, Hu Jun, and the drama’s director Tsui Siu Ming (徐小明) were at TVB studios to promote the drama to Hong Kong viewers.

Charmaine said, “This drama was my first mainland Chinese drama after leaving TVB, so I knew there would be some difficulties. That’s why I hired a teacher to help me cram-study my Mandarin two months before shooting began.”

Hu Jun explained that though the cast and crew had trouble understanding Charmaine initially, her Mandarin improved immensely as filming moved on. Charmaine thanked Hu Jun for taking care of her throughout the production’s duration, adding that not only was Hu Jun her Mandarin teacher, he was also her horse riding instructor.

Director Tsui revealed that Charmaine suffered a waist injury while filming a horse riding scene. Charmaine clarified, “I twisted it while riding uphill and downhill. I laid on the floor for a good ten minutes and couldn’t move at all. Hu Jun lent me his personal therapist to help me out.”

In addition to the waist injury, Charmaine is also currently recuperating from a vertebral injury. She said she is unsure which injury came first.

Hu Jun also expressed his interest in TVB dramas and would consider filming one if he comes upon a good script.

        I have already watched those two episodes in Cantonese, but not the others which are now airing on TVB. Anyway, thanks for your information.

        I can find the complete Mandarin version on YouTube, but the quality is pretty bad. I will wait a bit longer for the rest of the drama series in Cantonese.

        If you happen to find more episodes in future, please post the link here. I will check from time to time. Thanks again.
