The Romance of Tiger and Rose tells the story of a screenwriter, Chen Xiaoqian (played by Zhao Lu Si) who finds herself trapped in a parallel world of her own script as the ill fated third princess, an insignificant side character, who is destined to die quickly in the story.
As drama cannon fodder, Chen Xiaoqian is is saddled with a horrible reputation and is forced to embark on a quest to change her fate while fending off an arrogant and black bellied prince and the impossibly perfect Pei Heng .
This story, though it relies on well-treaded transmigration tropes is refreshing as it applies modern humor to a historical setting.
From its recently released trailer, The Romance of Tiger and Rose promises many laughs as once again Zhao Lu Si impresses with her great sense of comedic timing.
