After a year of post-production, The Virtuous Queen of Han <衛子夫> will finally premiere on August 20 through mainland China’s Zhejiang TV, Anhui TV, and Dragon TV. The historical drama stars Wang Luodan (王珞丹) as the famous Wei Zifu, the wife of Emperor Wu of Han. Raymond Lam (林峯) stars as Emperor Wu and Niki Chow (周麗淇) as the emperor’s elder sister, Princess Pingyang.
The drama recently held a premiere party where the cast discussed about the hardships of filming the drama in the heat of the summer. The filming took place at the Hengdian World Studios, which lasted four months. Perhaps due to the intense heat, Luodan got sick while filming. She revealed that her parents visited her on set one day to take care of her. Niki said that some of her friends that were nearby also visited her at work, including Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼) and Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍).
Raymond’s parents did not pay him a visit, but admitted that girlfriend Karena Ng (吳千語) visited him a few times. At the mention of Karena, Luodan immediately praised Raymond to be a very caring boyfriend who took care of Karena really well. She revealed one incident, “I saw Raymond spraying mosquito repellent on his girlfriend’s legs. He is a very good man.”
Appearing embarrassed, Raymond quickly clarified, “Many actors wore long pants but she didn’t, so I should be more attentive.” Asked if Karena would also help Raymond with washing his clothes and cooking meals, Raymond immediately turned red and said, “Let’s change the topic. Why am I suddenly sweating?”
On the other hand, Niki and boyfriend Jeremy Tsui (徐正曦), who also stars in The Virtuous Queen of Han, were also teased for acting lovey-dovey on the filming set. It was revealed that Niki would often cook soup for Jeremy.
“I shared the soup with everyone,” said Niki, pointing at the other cast members.
