The Legend of Kaifeng (2018)

2016 Chinese TV series Legend of Kaifeng


Given that Three Heroes Five Gallants just aired this year, I wasn't expecting another adaptation touching upon the story of Justice Bao so soon yet here we are with The Legend of Kaifeng 开封府传奇 which completed filming a few months ago. It is headed by Victor Huang Weide (Love is Giving), Zhang Meng (Legend of Banshu), Gan TIng Ting (New Xiao Shi Yi Lang) and Jiang Chao (Suddenly Seventeen).  

As a court official who lived during the Song Dynasty, Bao Zheng is often portrayed as an aged man just and wise beyond his time. He is a person held to such high moral standards that I could hardly imagine Justice Bao having a love interest although there have been many reiterations of that as well. 

This time around Huang Weide who played an evil prince in Nirvana in Fire does a complete one-eighty to transform into a young and benevolent Justice Bao in his coming of age story that focuses on friendship, romance and politics. 

Release Date: July 16, 2018 CCTV8 (two episodes daily at 7:30pm)
