Haha. Joke. Let’s not take this title too seriously. The reason I wrote it like this is because currently, a lot of people are putting Zhao Liying against Angelababy. The dramas at sake are: Hua Qian Gu, Yun Zhong Ge and Legend of Zu.
People are having a fun time comparing the prospect of watching either Angelababy’s Yun Zhong Ge or Zhao Liying’s Legend of Zu. Since both are period dramas that will star idols, I guess it is understandable they feel like comparing the two. I find this funny because people are all forgetting about the male leads. I just want to remind the world that keuf keuf Angelababy and William Chan dated in the past. So, can we say it is also the battle between the past two lovers? Well, they remained good friends so this is going to be a … friendly competition! 😛
Zhao Liying will actually appear on Yun Zhong Ge and she is also promoting the drama online. So, in my opinion, the media created war is totally useless. Angelababy and Zhao Liying are actually friends (watch Liying’s appearance on Run Brother Season 1 as proof!)
I watched the first episodes of Yun Zhong Ge and it is all very pretty. I think it is the kind of drama all family would love since it is palace drama, with a lot of pretty people, idols, centered on both romance and plotting. Quiet nice. Angelababy is so pretty in all the scenes. I am not fond of the costumes a 100%, but I think it is definitely going to get better. Yang Rong is also killing her role so far. Lu Yi is also doing well ^^ I have a bit of difficulty to love Chen Xiao’s character because I KNOW he is going to turn bad real soon, so I am trying to keep my distance… 😛 Here are some stills from the first few episodes:
Furthermore, a LOT of Hua Qian Gu netizen fans are right now cursing Hunan and Mango TV like crazy because they are mad that Hua Qian Gu was cut so much during the last few episodes. Apparently, the ratings of Yun Zhong Ge is suffering a little bit because fans are protesting by NOT watching Yun Zhong Ge on Hunan, even chosing to watch it online instead. Oh well… It is the viewers’ choice! Anyway, rumors says that Hunan finally admit defeat and is going to air the uncut version of Hua Qian Gu tomorrow. We will see if it will indeed happen…
Zhao Liying shares this selfie with a little message saying:
See You tomorrow! #CelebrationHuaQianGu
Talking about Hua Qian Gu, the cast had a blast celebrating the success that Hua Qian Gu turned out to be for the summer 2015. They had a press conference and a dinner. Pictures are gorgeous so I am going to show them. I love the way Bai Zihua and Hua Qian Gu are interacting with their ‘mother’, the author Fresh Guo Guo. Turns out Wallace Huo kissed Guo Guo in front of everyone, to respect his promise/bet to her (if they have amazing ratings, he will kiss her!!) Ma Ke once said that the cast had a group chat together on weibo, so I definitely believe the interactions on screen is geniune. They must really love each other (all the casting members).

UPDATE about the numbers (sorry I missed that at first):
The drama Hua Qian Gu was celebrating their big achievement. They had the highest rating at 3.89%, with an average of 2.2%. It also had accumulated a total of 6.8 billion through online search. Good job!
