    I don't know why, but Han Dong looks really outstandingly hansdome in that trailer!

    The trailer is better than what I expected (was not happy with that Tang dynasty one by YZ) but it seems to be giving the whole story away with all the twists shown. The ending looks pretty predictable. I think the story is OK but strange at some points like the massive love hexagon involved.

    YSS seemes to be emoting better in here than in Gong II and even looks better in motion than in stills. I was initially worried about all the colourful costumes but they don't look too bad in the trailer. But I have to say, Hawick seems a little bored in the trailer even though Huang Tai Ji is a central character and unlike the charasmatic Mo Shao Qian. Han Dong looks a little too gentle to be the aggressive Dorgon but I'll see how he fares. Have no opinion about Zhang Meng at this moment.

    I am glad YZ shifted the focus of the battle between the two sisters due to multiple reasons rather than them turning on each other just for love of the Emperor or power. But I am not happy about Yu'Er being the damsel in distress again, joprefully YZ will show a more maturer or sneakier side to her towards the ending. I think I might give this series a try. (Hang Dong! )

    I agree. I wasn't too interested in this series at first, but Han Dong looks so good I'm intrigued . No to mention that I've always had a soft spot for Dorgon (the fictionalized one) and his "romantic feelings" for Da Yu'er (though not sure about how I feel about YSS playing the role or this series version of the story).

    Oh well, we'll see.

    Does Han Dong's character get the girl in this series?

    If so, I would watch for all of their scenes together.

    Off the top of my head, I don't think I've ever seen him get the girl or get a happy ending. haha.\

    PS. In my opinion, YSS's character is undeserving of Prince Dorgon's affection.
    I like me.

    Mmmmm. Dorgon & Yu Er!

    I don't think he will get the girl either. But Han Dong looks really dashing in here so I am looking forward to this. There is a an awful lot of dancing scenes in the themevideo, what is that all about????

    I still don't understand the title...why is it called Beauty Without Tears when all the beauties (female and male) all have crying scenes.

    Han Dong's character looks so romantic
    I like me.

    If Huang Tai Ji is in the series, then it's not the Qing Dynasty. It's pre-1644, and Chong Zhen is still in power. So the setting isn't really "China" at all, it's wherever the hell the Manchus were located before taking over Beijing.

    The upcoming prequel retells the Chu-Han contention from the perspective of "beauties."

    And as far as "beauties" go ...

    ... nothing beats the original.

    Ruby Lin and Yang Mi being on the screen at the same time ... now THAT is an overload of glamour and beauty. Throw Sun Fei Fei into the scene as well ... and the beauty level goes thru the roof.

    I should know. I'm watching Schemes right now.
