Synopsis:

Zhang Ping is a poor scholar who wanders on the streets, who makes use of his skills in pulling noodles to make a living. Despite being unremarkable in looks, he has a meddlesome nature and likes to involve himself in the cases of the government. Using his sharp observational skills and out of the box thinking, he is able to grasp the unique points of each case. However due to his solitary nature he isn't well liked by others. Lan Jue, the Minister of Rites, is constantly embroiled in the political strife of the court. Possessing a gentle and elegant appearance, he appears to lead a smooth-sailing life, but actually hides a growth history that is unknown to many.

One day as Zhang Ping travels to the capital to take the National Examinations, he accidentally gets embroiled in Lan Jue's secret operation. Using his genius reasoning, he managed to solve the case, but also disrupts Lan Jue's plan, while also discovering Lan Jue's secret and saving his life. From then on, the two people with a disparity in status and contradictory ideals became close friends, facing tough cases straight on and going through life and death situations together. Under Lan Jue's recommendation, Zhang Ping slowly transforms from a poor scholar to a minister in the Dali Temple, solving cases and handling affairs in the court; making a name for himself as a genius detective.

I couldn't resist laughing out loud at the description of Zhang Ping. "Unremarkable in looks" and it's Song Wei Long. He's quite attractive actually so I find the description ironic.

"A League Of Nobleman" got it's Broadcasting Licence on 14 September 2021.   The Mandarin Title has been changed to "君子盟" (Jun Zi Meng).  No more "张公案".  @SC2019 perhaps you may like to edit it.

 

Rumours have it that it will premier on the 4th or Last Quarter of 2021.

I thought it would be banned as China just passed the policy to ban boy love dramas. The Immortality may never see the light. What a shame! 

I didn't think this was a BL drama.

There are more male actors but they definitely do not look "girly".

Nor is the story about bromance between the two male leads. 

Did it air already?

I think this is borderline BL but not as obvious as other ones. For some reasons, when you search for the upcoming BL dramas, this one keeps being mentioned as well. I do look forward to this one so it's a relief that it managed to obtain the license. I think it should premiere soon if everything goes well.

Oh, apparently the novel the drama based on is BL but the producers never take the drama that way, so it's going to be a mystery drama with minimal romance ❤. I hope it is good. The posters and the sypnosis sounds really promising.

Ah, so the director is toeing the line with this.

Hehehe! I got mystery novel vibes from the trailer which is why I was wondering where the BL is coming from.

As soon as I saw the casting I was sure they are going to stay as far as possible from the BL direction. Those guys imo qualify more as friends/partners.

I know right?

Jing Bo Ran is a hottie in his own right and so is Song Wei Long.

This is based on a webnovel 'The Mystery of Zhang Gong' by Da Feng Gua Guo.

@SC2019 - Can you add the links to the novel translation (https://www.novelupdates.com/series/the-mystery-of-zhang-gong/) and the site the novel was published on (http://www.jjwxc.net/onebook.php?novelid=1180294) ?

This is actually not a BL drama. The novel is 'no CP' - doesn't contain any pairing. But that's going from the jjwxc description - I haven't read the novel.

@ElleSor honestly never thought about both of them as hotties (maybe just not my "type":wub:), but I'm very interested into the story! 

 Hahaha...I guess, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. 

I really like SWL and JBR. Yes, I am interested in their story as well.
