The latest in iQiyi’s Light On Theatre series is Day Breaker 暗夜行者, a crime thriller which stars Li Yifeng, Song Yi and Stephen Fung. Now as with all the shows on the Light On line-up, Day Breaker is heavier on the suspense as its protagonist Luo Xiang goes deep undercover to infiltrate a drug cartel.
Li Yifeng stars as Luo Xiang, an anti narcotics cop who faked his own death in an undercover drug operation. Five years later, he resurfaces with a brand new identity only to resurrect his “dead” self to gain entrée back into the cartel and tie up some unfinished business. Luoyang actress Song Yi who first drew attention playing a beautiful and badass spy in The Disguiser is back in action as Su Qing Zhu. She is his former colleague, former partner and former lover. Stephen Fung plays Liao Yongjia, a cop who knows all the secrets.
Interestingly, Day Breaker marks 47-year-old Stephen Fung’s comeback in front of the cameras after years behind it. The Hong Kong multi hyphenate –actor, singer, model, and film director made his directorial debut back in 2004. He has made a name for himself with projects such as Enter the Phoenix, House of Fury and Netflix’s Wu Assassins for where he was an executive producer and directed the first two episodes.
