I feel like I’m back at Shanghai Film Park (where they clearly shot a lot of this and much of The Disguiser too)! https://flickr.com/photos/80593519@N00/sets/72157680700554134
Appears that these spy dramas are modeling after The Disguiser.
The axiom is: “if something is a hit, make it over and over and over.”
This one is based on a book that is a sequel to the books of The Disguiser and the drama with Wallace Chung and Li Xiaowan. Guiwan was Ming Cheng’s old boss in Paris in the book.
