Advisors Alliance 军师联盟 is a 2017 Chinese historical drama starring Wu Xiu Bo, Liu Tao (Nirvana in Fire), Janine Zhang (Empress of China), Li Chen, Zhang Zhixi (Three Heroes and Five Gallants), Tang Yixin (Legend of the QIng Qiu Fox) and more.
The plot revolves around esteemed strategist Si Ma Yi and his time in Wei during the Three Kingdoms. Veteran Wu Xiu Bo double hats as actor and producer and his attachment to the project brings together the star-studded ensemble of acting heavyweights.
God of War Zhao Yun's attempt at the Three Kingdoms turned out to be such a letdown, which I hope Advisors Alliance does not repeat.
As war-ridden and bloody as it may be, Three Kingdoms remains one of the most marvelous clash of wits amongst the brilliant minds in Chinese history and Advisors Alliance certainly looks to deliver a legit depiction of the same, though I have no clue why the characters are in suits, must be a new concept that they're trying out.
