    What? Mark Chao has made a TV drama? What gives?

    This dude had been working as an A list film star since his debut in the TW drama “Black and White” and his subsequent controversial win at the Golden Bell Award. I wonder what has prompted him to return to TV work.

    Mark Chao’s character looks tragic lol. Haven’t read the novel, heard its plagiarized. Still it’ll be one of the hottest dramas to air this year with the cast and the controversy around it.

    Still remember spending two days to read this novel. Sorry but Mark Chao doesn’t look like Ye Hua / Mo Yan in my imagination. Don’t know if Im gonna watch it or not

      @nori Not a fan of the novel but the leading actor does not resemble what I have in mind either. In fact, both leading artists don’t. Hopefully the movie version with Liu Yifei is less disappointing.

    I initially was not interested in watching this series. But then, I see Ken Chang’s name (he looks like Michael Tse in the photo) in the report. Is his role (Zhe Yan) big in the novel? If yes, I might check this series out.
