Stills have been released for Awakening of Insects, an upcoming Republican espionage drama from the writer of Sparrow 麻雀. The 45 episode drama stars Zhang Ruoyun, Wang Ou, Sun Yizhou, Kan Qingzi and Wang Longzheng. [Extended Synopsis]
Awakening of Insects 麻雀2之惊蛰 comes from the author-writer of 2016 spy drama Sparrow, and stars Zhang Ruoyun as Chen Shan, a police informer who is forced by the Japanese to infiltrate the Kuomintang as Xiao Zhengguo, whom he bears a close resemblance to. Wang Ou plays the righteous Communist agent and Chen Shan’s love interest Zhang Li.
Who says heroes must be lonely?
Our heroes are happy.
So opens Gu Long’s favorite novel of his, Happy Heroes 欢乐英雄. The first TV adaptation of novel, titled Growing Pains of Swordsmen, has begun filming and will star Bai Ke, Lan Yingying, Sun Yizhou, and Yang Le as a quartet of happy heroes in their various escapades. The series is directed Shang Jing and “written by” of My Own Swordsman, so I expect it might be similar in tone. The original listed writer was Ning Caishen of My Own Swordsman but has been changed to Shang Jing after Ning Caishen got banned for doing drugs, but I suspect the script may still be based off his script. The two’s tone should work well with the novel, which is episodic and an attempt by Gu Long to focus on the more human and mundane stories of the wuxia world.
