The production team released a ‘eight-year mystery’ teaser and ‘Guang-Rong’ poster, together with stills of the full line-up. The drama is set against a background of drugs trafficking, it tells the story of a group of ordinary citizens who try to pursue a better life and the police who protect the safety of the people, fighting against crime with justice. 

In “Age of Legends’, William Chan plays the role of protagonist Liu Zi-guang, has a complicated background. After his father's tragic death eight years ago, he left his home to build a life elsewhere. However, upon returning to his hometown after eight years, he lost his memory. The knife and bullet scars on his body, his tattoos, his extraordinary physical strength, his skills, or his connections with drugs lord Nie Wanfeng, all point towards a difficult past experience.

Liu Zi-guang with his highly dubious background just have to run into female police officer Hu Rong, played by Sandra Ma. This outstanding graduate of the police school sets her lifelong goal to be a qualified people's police officer. She is determined to investigate the truth behind Liu Zi-guang, who has been declared dead by the officials.  As the lives of the two of them get entangled, Hu Rong gradually discovers Liu Zi-guang’s sense of kindness, justice and responsible character. 

Although this is the first time William Chan and Sandra Ma work together, they share a special chemistry. William once said, “Sandra and I are very harmonious, many dialogues just come out naturally." Sandra also praised William’s acting in an interview before. It is thus met with anticipation what kind of ‘competition’ the two of them will display in the drama. 

‘Age of Legends’ has assembled a group of outstanding new generation actors. Chen Yao, who plays ‘cool entrepreneur" Li Wei, has previously impressed viewers in works as ‘Wu Xin the Monster Killer’ and ‘So Young’. Mischievous Bei Xiao-shaui is played by Ye Zu-xin, whose performance in ‘Scarlet Heart’ had been unanimously recognized by the audience. He Ming-han played a courageous and ambitious captain Han Jin in ‘The Eighteen-Year Sky’, which is a classic among mainland's youth  dramas. Wang Ge, who left deep impressions with his performances in ‘Yu Zui" and ‘Animal World’, stars as the righteous Zhuo Li, and Ye Liu, who acted in ‘Sky Hunter’ plays Arthur in this drama. These new generation actors inject a sense of youthful vitality and freshness in ‘Age of Legends’. 

In addition, many powerhouse veteran actors are also included in the cast. Liu Yi-jun’s acting had been highly affirmed by his previous works such as ‘Nirvana in Fire’, ‘The Disguiser’ and ‘The Battle of Beiping". This time, he plays Nie Wan-feng, the main antagonist which is a sinister and complex character. Other actors such as Wu Gang, Wang Ji, Li Jian-yi, Hu Jing, Feng Guo-qiang, Ren Zheng-bin, Wang Tong-hui, etc. who had acted in previous well known works such as ‘Beijinger in New York’, ‘In the name of the people’, "Xiao Zhuang Mi Shi".
