History was not as kind to the heroic Yue family whose great deeds ended in tragedy, yet Son of Hero is largely a work of fiction, immortalizing the experiences and triumphs of its protagonist Yue Lei and the first stills give us a glimpse of a wuxia extravaganza with loads of dramatic scenes during wartime.
The cast includes Gavin Gao Yunxiang (Win the World), Li Man, Ashton Chen Shi Xiao Long (Martial Universe) and Zhu Zi Xiao (Lucky Tianbao). I only recognize Ashton Chen who is best known for being the 6-year-old little Shaolin master. He was such a certified action star back then though it remains to be seen whether he can find the same success as an adult. Update 2018: Given actor Gavin Gao’s scandal, it’s unlikely that this drama will ever be released.
