The video itself gives little away, showcasing the cast against a dramatic backdrop of fire and falling petals.

While specific roles and the premiere date remain under wraps, GMMTV productions typically air on their app or other video-sharing platforms like Youtube, “Scarlet Heart,” originally a 2005 Chinese novel titled “Bu Bu Jing Xin” by Tong Hua, follows a modern-day woman, Zhang Xiao, who finds herself transported back to the Qing Dynasty after a car accident. Thrust into the past, she encounters the Emperor’s princes and becomes entangled in their intense power struggles and politics for the throne.

For its Thai adaptation, the series announced the first line-up of actors including Win Metawin, Tu Tontawan, Perth Tanapon, Phuwin Tangsakyuen, Tay Tawan, Nanon Korapat, Fourth Nattawat and

The story has captivated audiences across various media. Following the novel came a Chinese drama adaptation in 2011, starring Cecilia Liu, Nicky Wu, Kevin Cheng, Yuan Hong, and Lin Gengxin. On the other hand, South Korea brought the tale to life in 2016 through the K-drama “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” featuring IU, Lee Joong Gi, Kang Haneul, and a star-studded supporting cast. Notably, this adaptation placed the female lead in the Goryeo Dynasty instead of the Qing.

With a talented Thai cast and GMMTV’s production prowess, this new adaptation of “Scarlet Heart” promises to be a must-watch for fans of the original story and newcomers alike. Keep an eye out for further updates on the series, including the cast’s roles and the all-important premiere date!
