I am looking forward to this as the trailer is cool.  Heard Chen kaige is the executive producer.  Both father-son duo bling bling the silver screen.   The trailer:   Cr: as t

Ooohh wow ... clap clap!!! that trailer is great! Happy to see Tan Song Yun and Jin Shi Jie here too... @raziela LoL.. for me its the headdress that I think I will need to get used to  

I hope that it's only 36 episodes, so that it wont drag and (hopefully) has fast pace. I dont have problems with TSY in period drama, since this is a Republican one ..like a 'semi' traditional

I just hope for one thing : this gets english subs . It doesnt look like a major production (does it?), so I'm worried


Oh, and isnt that Master Yan Se as one of the Eight? He is a senior actor, isnt he?

well the west do have their mission impossible....if u like it....have u watch 'The Four'? :) it is pretty good with ZhangHan as a lead....


though they are not to over throw the government but to protect the citizen from bad officials :) 

Do you mean the one with Yang Yang and William Chan? I watched it, but I think it wasnt my cup of tea :)

awww too bad....lols....but well it does get boring sometimes :D 

Yeah..not a fan of the story


And I prefer one with a more natural/darker vibe, like Wuxin Monster Killer or Sparrow. It seems that the Eight has similar vibe, and I'm hoping for more artistic / pretty cinematography and fighting scenes.

iQIyi has finally put the drama in the "Coming Up' section. And AvenueX latest video mentions that it's supposed to air by Q2-2020, so let's cross our fingers that it will air soonest! 


Just a reminder, this drama is a joint work of iQiyi and Chen Kaige. He's right there at the middle front in the wrap up picture on page 1. According to ScreenDaily, CKG is involved in casting, editing and cinematography! How far CKG's involvement actually is, I can't be sure. But at least we can see it has actors who often work with CKG before, like Ou Hao and Jin Shijie. Like others, I'm excited to see Tan Songyun here!
