Ma Tianyu and Qi Wei are teaming up for a new drama, Humans 完美芯机人, a futuristic drama revolving around artificial intelligence. The information has yet to be made official but once confirmed, this will be the fourth time that the two will be working together.
They played comrades in Young Sherlock 少年神探狄仁杰, a 2014 drama that tackled a series of cryptic cases which took place during the Tang Dynasty. Ma Tianyu played Wang Yuanfang, Di Renjie’s (played by Bosco Wong) good friend while Qi Wei played Wi Wangqing, Di Renjie’s love interest.
The two teamed up soon after in Swords of Legends 古剑奇谭 which also aired in 2014. Ma Tianyu played two roles – Fang Lansheng and Jin Lei, the previous reincarnation of Fang Lansheng. Qi Wei played his fiancee and the daughter of his enemy.
Their most recent drama was Singing All Along 秀麗江山之長歌行 in 2016. It is about the relationship between Emperor Guangwu (played by Yuan Hong) and Yin Lihua (played by Ruby Lin). Qi Wei and Ma Tianyu who both acted in the drama did not have any scenes together.
