Synopsis
Love and pain in the forbidden city will be on screen again,
Fierce battles between the imperial ladies,
"Beauty At War" is even more glamorous and breathtaking.


In order to air her grievances towards her elder sister Lady YUE YUET (Sheren Tang), Lady SUN YUEN-SAU (Christine Ng) spreads rumors of YUE YUET in the palace. The ambitious nursing mother SEUNG-LING (Ada Choi) tries to collect evidence against the rumors in exchange for money from others. She naturally becomes a trusted follower and a close friend of Lady YUE very soon. Meanwhile, the arrival of famous actors KO LAU-FEI (Moses Chan) and WAN TSAU-YIN (Kwan Lai Kit) captures the heart of every woman in the palace including the lonely YUEN-SAU. YUE YUET tries to stop YUEN-SAU from committing adultery by playing tricks but this put her into an intricate polygonal relationship with SEUNG-LING and LAU-FEI accidentally. YUEN-SAU tries to fight back by getting help from the fortune-teller TUNG KAT-HOI (Wong Tak Bun). Others think that KAT-HOI is a crazy guy but they never realize that the palace is origin of all the craziness…

Production ('Beauty at War' wiki)
In August 2011, TVB announced the development of War and Beauty II, with executive producer Jonathan Chik and executive scriptwriter Chow Yuk-ming returning to produce. Original cast members Sheren Tang, Charmaine Sheh, Moses Chan, and Kenny Wong expressed their interest in returning.[3] Gigi Lai and Bowie Lam, both whom have won TVB Anniversary Award for Best Actress and Best Actor for their performances in the original serial, rejected TVB's offer to return. Lai has retired from acting, while Lam chose to film a mainland drama production instead.

In September 2011, Sheh announced her withdrawal from the cast because she was tied to filming Legend of Yuan Empire Founder. However, it was announced in April 2012 that Sheh would return in a guest role. Maggie Cheung Ho-yee, who was slated to return, also withdrew because she already signed a deal to film Nu Xiang (女相). In October 2011, Tang and Chan has signed to return. Ada Choi, who was originally considered for a role in the original serial, was announced to join the cast. In 2002, Choi filmed a promotional trailer for War and Beauty, which was unveiled at TVB's 2003 Sales Presentation. However, due to other filming commitments, she had to withdraw.

In January 2012, Wong was confirmed to return. Christine Ng was cast in a major role, and Alice Chan, her first drama with TVB, was cast to guest star in a few episodes.
