Myolie Wu’s “Wine Beauty” Reveals 4-Minute Preview
Mainland Chinese drama Wine Beauty <紅酒俏佳人>, which stars Hong Kong actress Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Taiwanese actor Roy Chiu (邱澤), and mainland Chinese actress Li Sheng (李晟), recently released a collection of character posters, as well as a four-minute-long preview. As mainland China’s first television drama on wine tasting, Wine Beauty promises viewers a feast for the eyes with its suspenseful plot and grand settings.
The story of Wine Beauty revolves around Shen Yiman (Myolie Wu), a leading figure in the wine industry who is mired in previous upsetting memories and enmities. Because she was hurt by loved ones in the past, she lacks a sense of security in her current life. Unfortunately, her life soon takes a turn for the worse: her stepmother, Dan Li (Joy Pan 潘儀君), tries to constrain her; her boyfriend, Zhao Xi (Mao Zijun 茅子俊), leaves her at the altar; and her friends betray her.
Roy Chiu plays Shen Zihao, Yiman’s stubborn and unruly cousin. Zihao was born into an aristocratic wine family but does not seem to have inherited the same genes, as his passion lies in rock ‘n roll music instead. By accident, he meets Lin Xuan (Li Sheng), a country girl who has traveled to Shenzhen to look for her ex-boyfriend Zhao Xi. In order to win back his love, she studies the art of wine tasting, with some help from Zihao, and becomes the newly discovered darling among wine professionals. However, her relationship with Shen Yiman is fraught with tension; on one hand, Lin Xuan admires her for her knowledge of wine, but on the other, the two clash as love rivals.
Throughout the preview, Yiman, Zihao, and Lin Xuan go through many trials and tribulations in their love lives and careers. Will Yiman be able to regain her confidence and emerge from this low point in her life? Will Zihao’s rock ‘n roll dreams survive? And will Lin Xuan be able to find happiness in this big city?
