The crime fighting drama My Roommate is a Detective 民国奇探 starring Hu Yitian, Leon Zhang Yunlong and Shane Xiao Yan has dropped some new photos today, offering up a first glimpse of the investigative trio in action and a behind the scenes look into the Republican period piece.
Leon Zhang and Hu Yitian channeling some Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson vibes in pursuit of a case.
The Republican period seems to suit the two lead actors, don’t you think? They both look quite dashing with their slicked back hair and tailored outfits. Not to mention Leon Zhang in his police uniform below!
Elementary, my dear Watson.
Let’s not forget our heroine Xiao Yan whose innocent charm is the perfect blend of adorable and capable all rolled into one.
Don’t you just love the visuals offered up by Republican period dramas? It offers viewers a feast for the eyes with its juxtaposition of east and west, and the old with the new. I hope these first few photos have succeeded in whetting your appetite to see what the drama is all about!
