The Golden Hairpin

The Golden Hairpin isn an upcoming cdrama featuring Yang Zi! Who was super adorable in Go Go Squid!

If you haven’t watched Go Go Squid! go check it out ASAP!

I’m super excited to see Yang Zi in an ancient drama setting since I’ve already seen her in a modern setting. How will she fare?

At thirteen, investigative prodigy, Huang Zixia proves herself by aiding her father in solving confounding crimes.

At seventeen, she’s on the run, accused of murdering her family to escape an arranged marriage.

Driven by a single-minded pursuit, she must use her skills to unmask the real killer…

And clear her name.

But when Huang Zixia seeks the help of Li Shubai, the Prince of Kui, her life and freedom are bargained.

She must agree to go undercover as his eunuch to stop a serial killer.

And undo a curse that threatens to destroy the Prince’s life.

Huang Zixia’s skills are soon tested when Li Shubai’s betrothed vanishes.

With a distinctively exquisite golden hairpin as her only clue, Huang Zixia investigates—and discovers that she isn’t the only one in the guarded kingdom with a dangerous secret.

This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen Yang Zi in a wuxia cdrama. Thinking of Noble Aspirations, Ashes of Love, etc.

But this one is slightly different.

With hints of crime solving/mysteries to solve. So curious to see how she will do here.

There is just ONE thing I’m bothered by though. Yang Zi crossdressing as a male doesn’t really do it for me.

Not after I’ve seen the female lead in The Heiress and her portrayal as a man.

But I’m confident she will shine! After all, she has proven time and time again that she’s a versatile actress! ^^

And yet again, this series is loosely based off a popular novel!


So what do you think? Will you give this cdrama a try once it comes out?
