On Aug 31, Bai Yu (Suddenly This Summer), You Jingru (Ten Miles of Spring Wind Can’t Compare To You) and Ji Chen (Sand Sea) wrapped filming for Detective L 绅探 after 103 days. It’s a crime-solving drama that revolves around a rookie cop who crosses paths with an accomplished detective. I’m guessing that L stands for Bai Yu’s character Luo Fei, and yes, Death Note did cross my mind. In the off chance that there happens to be any similarities between the two, I’m all for it.
Detective dramas never seem to go out of date, and the Republican styling adds a level of intrigue, at least for me. It looks like a bromance may also be in order, but I can’t help but think of Zhu Yilong, especially in that first picture. Bai Yu moved on so quickly ?!
