I've automatically associated Jin Yi Wei with guillotines and it's partially because I've seen one too many TV adaptations.
Nonetheless, Jin Yi Wei is a secret military organization under the command of the Ming Dynasty Emperor and it's a name that strikes fear due to the power that it wields.
At 68 minutes long, Jin Yi Wei 大明锦衣卫 is a Chinese TV movie starring Ying Hao Ming (The Mystic Nine). His previous works range from the awkwardly cute Ba Ye to the downright despicable Ling Duan, which is a testament to his versatility as an actor.
This time around, he does a complete 180 as he attempts his first leading role as Lu Yi, a hero righteous and unyielding in the face of danger.
