So this is really another Sparrow, except instead of a bird, we’ve got an insect? Autumn Cicada 秋蝉 is gearing up to be another spy thriller about a Communist compatriot parading as a military officer serving the Japanese regime in order to complete a top secret mission.
Ren Jialun puts on the snazzy suit and tie to attempt the Republican-era for the first time as the titular lead. He may be no Li Yi Feng in popularity but both belong under the same management company which seems to be grooming the rising star into leading man status. Ying Er plays the heroine and she brings some espionage experience from her last role in Decoded.
