Chinese star Wu Jinyan (吳謹言) gains fame after starring in Chinese period drama, Story of Yanxi Palace (延禧攻略). After 3 years later, her new period series, Royal Feast (尚食) becomes a heated discussion. Many artistes help to promote the drama and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) is one of them. Their interactions is one of the top searches on Weibo.
Royal Feast series is based on culinary skills and has a similar plot to South Korean drama, Dae Jang Geum (大長今). Jinyan plays a palace maid in food bureau and has a romance with Xu Kai (許凱) who acts as an emperor. It is also one of the highlights in the series. As Xu Kai and Jinyan had a sad ending in Story of Yanxi Palace drama, many netizens wish both will end up together in the new series.
Before the premiere, several artistes helped to promote Jinyan’s new series and Lin Gengxin (林更新) posted a message on Weibo: “Are you sure you can cook? Let’s wait and see tonight.” Johnny Huang (黃景瑜) said: “Premiering tonight! Looking forward to it!” Qin Lan (秦嵐) showed her support: “Looking forward to Jinyan’s culinary skills! Dinner time!” Charmaine rooted for her: “Food department is open today! Hopefully you will climb to a higher level.” Jinyan responded: “Thank you Consort Xian.” Evidently, Jinyan has good social connections and Royal Feast drama premiered on 22nd February.
