Three Heroes Five Gallants gets another adaptation this year with The Legend of Kaifeng 开封府传奇, a 2016 c-drama starring Huang Weide, Zhang Meng and Gan TIng Ting.
Justice Bao is often portrayed as an aged man just and wise beyond his time. He is held to such high moral standards that I could hardly imagine a Justice Bao with a love interest yet Huang Weide will play the young and benevolent Justice Bao in his coming of age story that focuses on friendship, romance and politics.
It will be interesting to see Huang Weide in a complete turnaround from his role as the evil prince in Nirvana in Fire.
