There is a character description circulating for Wang Yibo’s character, “Baili Hongyi” (百里弘毅). The character is said to be 22 years old and the second son of an influential aristocratic family. “Baili Hongyi” is described to be very smart and wise, but has a heart of stone and is a heartless person. He is only interested about the unknown in the world and hard to solve problems. He is said to have strong logical thinking abilities, which allow him to use tiny details that normal people cannot see and evidence to assess the situation and uncover the truth. He also finds a lot of joy in this.

“Baili Hongyi” keeps to himself and says what’s on his mind. He can be quiet and gentle, but can also hurt people with his words. His only principal is, “Only do the right thing.” His older brother forces him to go into politics, but he finds the scheming and alliances among the court officials an interesting challenge. He also has a renewed hate/grudge with teammate, “Gao Bingzhu”, but he is also the person who understands him the most.

Huang Xuan plays “Gao Bingzhu” (高秉烛), a bad deputy marshal who hangs out in the lower rungs of society in Luoyang. He gets entangled in the murder of a secret informant and eventually gets framed as the murderer.

  1. HX is going to regret ever accepting to work with wyb, the way this is going with his fans and the screenwriter. Poor guy, established actor and he has to go through this bs for an idol. Smh.

      1. They are attacking HX, saying how it is Yibo who should be the sole main lead because he is so popular and then one person exposed a part of a private correspondence with one of the screenwriters, who said in it the production (that is in favor of HX as the ml) thought to surpress Yibo and that they, the writer, don’t have much say in casting. This is really terrible behavior, especially as Chinese entertainment industry is extremely sensitive to the issue of main leads. Oh and this article is wrong. Victoria is no longer on the casting line up and her fans also fought Yibo’s.

        1. What part of the article is wrong? What do you mean “Victoria is no longer on the casting line up”? She was announced as one of the leads along with Huang Xuan and Wang Yibo.

          The official Weibo post on 10/22 wrote: “Male Lead: Huang Xuan, Wang YIbo, Female Lead: Song Qian”.

    1. Yibo hater (or should I say Xiao Zhan fan?) spotted. Still upholding that toxic fandom label I see. Why don’t you people stay in your lanes and just support your idol. The efforts ya’ll put into slandering Yibo all over the web.
