Ruyi Drops Official MV and New Trailer
Finally, Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace‘s official music video and a new trailer have been released, just in time for the upcoming August 20th air date.
I was very surprised by the trailer. It has very little dialogue, even less than the amount of dialogue that was in the first teaser. This trailer really highlights the intricate set and the soundtrack. I really like the ending with the winding back of the clock and the rain falling in reverse. Also that clip of the Cold Palace’s gates being closed was epic. Other parts feel a bit jarring with the extra loud sound effects (e.g. the loud sound of the tea being poured…) though.

My heart was totally unprepared for the MV. I watched it in glee while squealing inside. Haha! Prior to this there were very few clips released of the OTP–Ruyi (Zhou Xun) and Hongli (Wallace Huo). But thankfully we’ve been gifted with an entire 4 minutes 28 seconds of OTP clips! I am really happy to see that Zhou Xun and Wallace’s chemistry is good. They look great together and I loveeee all the clips of the early days of their relationship. By the end of the MV, we see their relationship end in cold separation. I already knew the ending but I seriously felt the heartache just from the MV alone. How will I survive the actual drama…omg.
