Not rich enough for an all-star cast? Arrows shows that you can get an amazing cast without the A-list’ers.

I can’t express how  impressed I am with the casting director for Arrows on the bowstring 箭在弦上 .  They’ve managed to put together a perfect cast with both the looks, the charm and the acting at a bargain. (This was before Jiang Xin became popular for her role in Zhenhuan).

Starring Jiang Xin (Semi-Gods and Demi-Devils, Legends of Zhenhuan), Pan Zhilin (Old Home has Love, Fall in Love) and He Minghan as three siblings with amazing aims and a family to avenge, Jin Dong(Chuang Guan Dong), Wang Zirui and Zhang Na as the rich but righteous heirs of a local lord, and Chen Long (All Men are Brothers) as the bad guy, the drama will air on the 25th on Shenzhen TV.

Watch the trailer here and stills below the cut.

  1. I love this movie and it was so amazing so fabulous such great acting I got hooked and could not stop watching the series from 7 pm to early in the morning. I wish it never end and to all actors in this dynamic thrilling movie I say congratulation to great job of the best acting. Cheers!

  2. Man! This drama got me hooked… Simply love the acting of jin dong and the lead arrow girl(couldn’t catch her name) ahhhhhh yis amazin’!!!!

  3. Jiang Xin is such a talent. I was impressed with her right in the first episode with the scene at her wedding day when the Japanese army attached her family and the guests, how she was injured so much but still trying her best to kill her enemy to revenge for her family. Her grief and wrath that lead to her amazing strength. Jiang Xin was excellent to at that scene. It was epic and heart wrenching. I understand why Rong Shi was attracted and admired her at that moment. Jin Dong who acted a Rong Shi is actually a very good actor. He was one of many Chinese actor that impressed me with their skills. He has some very good action drama beside this one. :)

  4. I especially love Jin Dong’s acting as Rong Shi and Jiang Xin. They are really such good actor and actress, together with Pan Zhilin and He Minghan they made this drama so exciting and riveting. Who needs famous actors, was very well said….For me this drama beats Bu Bu Jing Qing hands down!

  5. WOW! Words are not enough to express my excitement on hw av rlly admred t. Ts realy a super movie ever seen and da characters employed realy suit their roles. CONGRATULATIONS DIRECTOR!!

  6. Hello everyone.I want to ask something(and by the way sorry for my bad english).The director is the one from “lotus lantern” and “mobile magic phone”?I hope so because if this the case is one from the two main reasons to watch the serial(the other is jiang xin apparntly).Also somebodys knows somwhere i can watch it?

  7. The trailer is fabulous. I fervently hope that mainland dramas will one day be popular outside of China because I think a lot of them are already better than HK and Taiwanese dramas.

  8. I love Jiang Xin’s acting! I think this is the type of role she should have got a long time ago. Does anyone know the name of the actor to her left on that poster?
