Chen Shen (Li Yi Feng) leads a double life as he works under friend and comrade Bi Zhong Liang (Zhang Lu Yi) in a specialized task force that captures anti-Japanese revolutionaries. However, he actually works under the code name Sparrow and his real mission is to bring down the very people that he works for.
Despite being explored many times before, the undercover premise never gets old and the stakes are elevated given the context of the Sino-Japanese war. Sparrow has the potential to become intriguingly complex and it can prove to be a breakthrough for Li Yi Feng’s career who diverges from his usual roles to become a spy.
Zhang Ruo Yun (Novoland: Castle in the Sky) is everywhere these days and he joins the cast, suggesting a love triangle with leading lady Zhou Dongyu (Never Said Goodbye) to further fuel the drama. The stills look legit and I sure hope it doesn’t disappoint. Also in the cast are Li Xiao Ran making a special appearance, Adi Kan Qing Zi and Andrew Yin Zheng.
