Zhang Ji Zhong 张纪中 is a prominent filmmaker known for his adaptations of Jin Yong 金庸 novels. After ROCH's record-breaking success comes Ode to Gallantry 侠客行 but this time around, a posse of new recruits led by Cai Yida, Zhang Jiani and Li Jing Yang headline the series.
Unfortunately, a lesser known cast may also be the reason why this 2014 c-drama has yet to secure an air date as it is left in the sidelines much like Princess Lanling King. Nonetheless, Jin Yong's larger than life novels are usually a must-watch for me so I'll probably give it a shot, if and when it airs.
