Lately, it sure feels like we’re stuck in an endless wait for our favorites to come back whether it be celebrity moms returning to work or actors who’ve taken a break. Would you believe that Li Yifeng’s last drama was Legend of Chusen in 2016? Although in his case, his absence from the small screen is actually because his two dramas Fearless Whisper and Wait in Beijing have not yet aired.
Meanwhile, the actor-singer has begun filming a third drama. Hao Shou Jiu Wei 号手就位 follows four roommates from the same dorm and university that undergo training to become aces in the military. The filming ceremony was held in Qingdao today, Oct. 8 with a cast that also includes Chen Xingxu, Xiao Yang, Yu Bo and Dong Chunhui.
Military themes sure seem to be a popular choice for Chinese dramas these days. I’m having a hard time distinguishing them already though this one is the first to feature the People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force. Nonetheless, it’s actually unexpectedly awesome to see Li Yifeng and rising star Chen Xingxu who steps back into a supporting role this time in one drama. Yu Bo is definitely an added bonus too!
