Shadow of Justice 蚀日风暴 is a 36-episode crime suspense drama about Hong Kong Police Officer, Ling Feng (played by Julian Cheung) who is accused of colluding with drug dealers in killing his partner and friend Fan Yi (played by Sunny Wang), yet his efforts to clear his name lead him right back to Fan Yi.
This drama will be available in two languages, Mandarin and Cantonese and it also stars Fiona Sit, Edmond Leung, Chen Jinru, Li Sihan and Toby Leung.
It has been awhile since I have seen Julian Cheung on the screen (I think the last time I saw him was before 2000! Haha) but to be fair, I don’t really follow him religiously. I must say he looks better than I remember him and he looks younger than he did before.
I must admit though, I have a feeling the story has some predictability to it. You might be wondering why? From the synopsis, I am guessing the Fan Yi faked his death because he is secretly working for the drug cartels and he needed to “quit” his day job for a more lucrative one. He probably didn’t mean to get Ling Feng mixed up with his “murder” because he would know that Ling Feng wouldn’t let up until his name is cleared.
Let’s check back when the drama is over to see if I am right on the nose? Haha
