The Fated General 大漠骠骑霍去病 is a 70-episode Chinese historical drama about the heroic feats of a general who has never lost a battle. He is Huo Qu Bing, the son of a servant who ends up becoming a member of the imperial family.
During a time when the people are forced to live through insufferable conditions and the constant threats from Xiongnu, Huo Qu Bing takes up arms to become a celebrated warrior of the Han Dynasty.
According to Director Zhang Jian, this is a project that has taken seven years to prepare and a similar approach is being taken when it comes to filming to ensure a quality production that is neither rushed nor forced. Zhang Jian and Zhang Ruo Yun (Novoland: Castle in the Sky) who plays the main protagonist are actually father and son.
The cast also includes Rachel Mao Xiao Tong (Princess Weiyoung), Bai Yu (Love O2O), Alan Yu Menglong (Three Lives Three Worlds) and Xu Yue (When A Snail Falls in Love).
