Heroes of the North 北国英雄, formerly titled The Snow Queen 雪女王, unveils its cast led by Dylan Kuo, Re Yi Zha and Kimi Qiao Ren Liang. It also stars An Zhi Jie, Colin Chou and Yuen Wah with a cameo by Jiro Wang.
In the Northern Kingdom, a young woman earns the namesake as the Snow Queen due to her fierceness in battle. Like many dramas in the same time period, it follows a theme revolving around anti-Japanese occupation.
I’m intrigued by the stylish posters and wonder whether it will translate to the drama. It does have an epic war, a tragic romance and a fight for an entire country’s survival. Judging from the weapon-wielding actors and the cast that includes veteran actors in the martial arts genre, I think it’s safe to expect a whole lot of action.
Update: On May 25, 2018, the cast attended a press conference ahead of its premiere, which was quite a long wait as the drama was completed since 2016. It is also the last drama that Kimi Qiao participated in before his sudden passing on September 16, 2016.
Release Date: May 30, 2018 JSTV
