The story revolves around the bond of two young and handsome martial arts masters – Zhou Zishu (played by Zhang Zhehan) and Wen Kexing (played by Gong Jun).

Gong said that Wen is a challenging role to play. “The most difficult part is showing his capriciousness. He is very emotional, so there can be many changes in emotion in a single scene. It’s difficult to switch from being ecstatic in one second to being apoplectic with rage the next.”

I love the role a lot as Wen is a courageous soul who is bent on pursuing what he wants in life.
