Ruyi’s Royal Love: Behind the Scenes Pictures (Part I)

Chinese DramasDrama News / Upcoming Dramas

Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace (Legend of Ruyi, Ruyi Zhuan) recently released the official still shown above, featuring Zhou Xun as Ruyi and Janine Chang as Hailan.  Out of all the stills that have been released so far, this is one of my favorites.  I love how it shows the sisterhood between Ruyi and Hailan so succinctly.  What can beat drinking a cup of hot tea and enjoying a friend’s company while watching the snow fall?

Aside from this official still, there are plenty of unofficial behind the scene pictures.  Many show sneak peeks of the set, extras, faraway views of the main cast members, and selfies.  Most of the pictures blur out the costumes so we can’t see what they’re wearing…and many of the pictures are grainy.  Here are some of the most interesting BTS pictures I’ve found so far:

The Cast

This is the best picture I could find of some of the main cast members all together, without their outfits being blurred out.


Zhou Xun, Tong Yao, and Wallace Huo.  Not sure who the other characters/actors are.
I believe this is Dong Jie as Fucha Langhua, but don’t quote me on it.
Li Chun as Wei Yanwan; Imperial Noble Consort Ling

It’s easy to find BTS pictures of Wallace in full costume. Guess there’s not much secrecy around his outfits.

Filming locations/Set

Beautiful filming locations.
I love the contrast between the orange leaves and the building!


This picture really brings out the brilliant blue colors


There are a few BTS pictures that made me wonder what the story behind them is:

What is the story behind this picture? What is the purpose of people walking on stilts? So many questions surrounding this!
There’s a GIANT boat prop….
…It’s legit. It actually floats.

That’s it for now.  More BTS pictures are to come!  Let me know which pictures are your favorites.  😉
