Luhan (The Great Wall), Gulnezer Bextiyar (Chinese Paladin 5) and Janice Wu (Love O2O) headline as the cast of young heroes. It also stars Joseph Zeng, Amelie Xu, Gao Hanyu, Lin Siyi, Chen Shu, Zhang Junning, Yao Di and a guest appearance by Eric Tsang. Aside from the novel’s existing fanbase, much of the interest is undeniably due to Luhan’s popularity, which is probably also the reason why the show easily secured an air date not long after it wrapped last November.
On another note, leading lady Gulnezer Bextiyar is gorgeous as always but her attachment to the project is met with mixed reception since she often gets flak for continuing to land big roles in spite of her greenness. Regardless, it’s a show that has been surrounded with buzz ever since its inception and I’m excited to finally see it on the small screen.
Release Date: April 17, 2017 Hunan TV
