Lei Jia Yin and Jackson Yi take the lead in “The Longest Day in Chang’An”

Secret of the Three Kingdoms has yet to air, but another one of Ma Bo Yong’s 马伯庸 novels is already on its way as The Longest Day in Chang’An 长安十二时辰 is being adapted into a Youku webdrama. Lei Jia Yin has been announced as the main protagonist who will be guarding the capital against a deadly assassin. Meanwhile, casting seems spot on for the 16-year-old Jackson Yi who plays a young prodigy. I’m curious whether the title really does mean that things will take place within 24 hours because that would actually be quite intriguing.
