Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace to Air This Summer
After over half a year of set-backs, the period c-drama Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace (Ruyi Zhuan; Legend of Ruyi) is finally set to air this summer. Viewers can tune in to Ruyi starting from August 20, 2018. The drama will air Mondays through Thursdays online. Ruyi was originally slated to air in the winter season of 2017-2018, but was postponed due to broadcasting restrictions. Fan Bing Bing’s period drama Win the World filled up the quota of period c-drama airing time, thus making Ruyi unable to air. Needless to say, I was incredibly disappointed and spent half a year lurking online searching for news of Ruyi‘s revival. 😛 Boasting a star-studded cast including Zhou Xun, Wallace Huo, and Janine Chang, and the production team behind Legend of Zhen Huan, Ruyi could possibly be the next c-drama to take China by storm. I have my fingers crossed that the drama will deliver!
