It’s funny how all of Ma Boyong’s drama adaptions (Mystery of Antiques, Secret of the Three Kingdoms, Longest Day in Chang’an, upcoming Luoyang) have high production values and star actors I like as leads, yet I just end up dropping all of them. Fingers crossed The Wind Blows from Longxi 风起陇西 can break the curse.
Set during the Three Kingdoms period, Chen Kun plays Chen Gong, the Kingdom of Shu‘s double agent who works with investigator Xun Xu (Bai Yu) to find the triple agent ‘Candle Dragon’ lurking in their midst. This will be director Lu Yang’s (Brotherhood of Blades) drama debut, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he’ll bring to the table.
The drama is written by Jin Haishu (The Identity of Father, upcoming The Story of Hairpin) and Jin Yu, and costars Nie Yuan, Chang Yuan, Angelababy, Sun Yi, Yin Zhusheng, Yu Haoming and Wang Xiao. Dong Zijian and Guo Jingfei guest star.
