iQiyi Light On returns with a new line up of mystery dramas

iQiyi has recently released a teaser featuring its upcoming mystery thrillers:

  • Gold Panning – Liao Fan, Chen Feiyu.
  • Who Is The Murderer – Xiao Yang, Dong Zijian, Zhao Liying
  • Wisher – Feng Shaofeng, Wenqi
  • The PavilionDuan Yihong, Hao Lei, Zu Feng, Wu Yue, Bai Yufan. Nineteen years ago, the Xuan family‚Äôs youngest sister is murdered, and the family is splintered. Almost two decades later, the broken family reunites after the oldest brother becomes the suspect of a fresh murder.
