I’ve had a soft spot for Zhu Yilong ever since he wooed Yang Rong in Love for Three Lifetimes, and now he’s starring with Zhang Xinyu in upcoming drama 边城浪子 (Border Town Prodigal).
The leader of the Divine Knife sect, Bai Tianyu, was mysteriously ambushed and killed in the border town Plum Nunnery. Twenty years later, Fu Hongxue (Zhu Yilong), leaves the western regions and returned to the central plains (China) in order to investigate his adopted father’s death. At the same time, Bai Tianyu and Hua Baifeng’s biological son, Ye Kai (Ye Qingbin), also left for the border town. The two find that it was Bai Tianyu’s sworn brother, Ma Kongqun (Qiu Xinzhi), who organized the assassination. (As luck would have it), Ma Kongqun’s beautiful daughter, Ma Suling (Zhang Xinyu) falls for Fu Hongxue, while Ye Kai falls for her…together, they will face Ma Kongqun. Look under the cut for more stills.
Other members of the cast include Chai Biyun, Vincent Jiao Enjun, Gong Mi, and Zhang Junning.
