Another historical c-drama with William Feng (aka Feng Shao Feng). Imperial Age!
If you don’t know William Feng, he was amazing in The Story of Minglan.
Portraying a second son who had conflicts with his father and then rose up to be a valued military official.
So much character development in that one! I expect this one to have just as much character development.
If not more.
A story about Zhu Yuan Zhang’s fourth son named Zhu Di.
Zhu Di fought many battles from a young age. And it was these battles that aided him in his journey to become a qualified military commander and a skilled politician.
In his youth, Zhu Di followed general Xu Da into war and experienced the bloodbaths in the battlefield.
As he grew in experience to command troops of his own, he gets caught in the struggle for power within the royal courts that honed his skills in becoming a political strategist.
With the support of his followers, Zhu Di settles in Beiping and vows to protect the Ming Dynasty from invaders.
With the death of Emperor Taizu of Ming, Zhu Yun Wen who succeeds in the throne falls for the instigations of his mother’s tribe to turn his wrath towards the members of the Zhu imperial family, ultimately forcing Zhu Di’s hand to rise up in rebellion.
Oh boy, this one is expected to have 53 episodes T_T
I sure know how to pick them.
If there’s a good cast, I may stick along for the ride. What do you think? Will you watch this when the series comes out?
