Zhang Yujian has landed himself a role starring as a young Qin Ming in the latest installment of the highly rated forensic crime series Medical Examiner Dr. Qin 法医秦明. This latest addition is entitled Silent Evidence 法医秦明之无声 and the Find Yourself second lead follows in the footsteps of previous Qin Mings like Zhang Ruoyun, Liu Dongqin and Jing Chao. Zhang Yujian’s version though appears to be some sort of a prequel as he plays a still wet behind the ears forensic investigator. Filming began on July 22 in Zhuhai city of Guangdong province.
As a fan of forensic crime shows, I’m very much anticipating to see which direction Zhang Yujian will take this character. And given that I haven’t quite gotten over his tantrums as Victoria Song’s twin brother in Find Yourself, I’m thinking he’ll easily be able to put a subtle comedic edge to the serious mien of Dr. Qin. I mean, he’s played the stoic male lead before in Le Coup de Foudre. With his unexpected comedic chops seen in Find Yourself, working it all into Dr Qin’s character shouldn’t be too hard.
In the original series, the chemistry between Zhang Ruoyun, Jiao Junyan and Li Xian’s crime fighting trio managed to inject some much needed comic relief to balance out the the heavy theme and some of the gag inducing scenes in the show. I’m hoping the Zhang Yujian, Zhou Yutong and Yuan Hao version in Silent Evidence will be just as good or even better!
Actors Xiao Ran, Zhao Ruiyu, Li Shutong and Wang Yuyang are also featured in this drama adaptation of Qin Ming’s novel of the same name.
