Material Queen Boosts Idol Drama Production Value


Newly minted Chinese idol drama Material Queen is going to be a visual feast of fashion and opulence this summer. Starring Taiwanese-American actor Vanness Wu, supermodel/actress Lynn Xiong, actor Daniel Chan, Korean-Taiwanese-American singer Harry Chang (of Da Mouth), Material Queen is a story about a top model’s dilemma in choosing between wealth and love. However, what makes this drama so unique is not the cast, but the exceptional high production value for an Asian idol drama series.

With a production budget of over $43 million US dollars and a production team that created recent idol drama blockbusters “Fated To Love You” and “Autumn’s Concerto”, Material Queen is one of the most anticipated idol drama of the year.

First of all, it’s not ordinary for an Asian television drama to hire world-class costume designer, Patricia Field. Field has won an Emmy Award for her work on “Sex and the City” and an Oscar nomination for “The Devil Wears Prada”. Field is not the only American on their list. Art director, Charles E. McCarry (Ugly Betty, Gossip Girls) was also recruited into this project to build an extravagant set in Taipei. To create a rich, fashionable and romantic atmosphere, the crew also filmed in Paris and Shanghai.

Short clip of Behind the Scenes and Interview with Patricia Field:

Material Queen is a co-production of NextTV and Orientales Production House. The drama will be aired on Taiwan’s CTV and NextTV on June 17. If you love fairy tale romance and fashion, this is a drama you wouldn’t want to miss.
