As a court official who lived during the Song Dynasty, Bao Zheng is often portrayed as an aged man just and wise beyond his time. He is a person held to such high moral standards that I could hardly imagine Justice Bao having a love interest although there have been many reiterations of that as well.
This time around Huang Weide who played an evil prince in Nirvana in Fire does a complete one-eighty to transform into a young and benevolent Justice Bao in his coming of age story that focuses on friendship, romance and politics.
