Period drama Incisive Great Teacher <犀利仁师> have released yet another new set of stills this week. Co-produced by Hoirun Studios and Scarecrow Studios, the 44-episode series stars real life couple Nicky Wu (吳奇隆) and Cecilia Liu (刘诗诗). It also stars Ye Zuxin (叶祖新), Huo Zhengyan (霍政谚), Taiwanese idol star Gui Gui (鬼鬼) of Hey Girl fame, and features the guest appearances of veteran stars Cheng Pei Pei (鄭佩佩), Kou Zhenhai (寇振海), and also popular actor Wallace Huo (霍建華).
Incisive Great Teacher is a romantic comedy that follows a group of young schoolteachers of the prestigious Hong Wen Academy in ancient China. It stars Nicky Wu as the imperial agent Liu Aotian, who was dispatched by the emperor on a mission to ensure that the court’s new decree of allowing female students are being followed by school administrators. Aotian disguises himself as a wushu instructor at Hong Wen Academy, and messes up a marriage-seeking tournament set up by Cecilia Liu’s Lu Yufei in the process. Seeking revenge, Yufei follows Aotian to the academy and also poses as a teacher.
With the ancient Chinese background of Incisive Great Teacher, the drama is a refreshing new take on idol romantic comedies. Though real life couple Nicky and Cecilia are a selling point of the series, the slapstick humor and light-hearted story-telling is also something that many fans are looking forward to.
