Taiwanese actor Eddie Peng recently graced the cover of Men’s Health, coinciding with the release of his sports movie, To The Fore (破风), which opens in theaters on August 7.
Directed by Dante Lam, To The Fore (which we will refrain from referring to as “Breaking Wind,” which the title can literally translate to) is set in the world of competitive cycling. Newbie bikers Wang Chouming (Eddie Peng) and Qiu Tian (Shawn Dou) find themselves wowed by the talented Korean cyclist Zheng Zhiyuan (Choi Siwon) and agree to sign on as his pacesetters (破风手).
Although the three of them form a perfect team, Wang Chouming and Qiu Tian soon discover that no matter how many races they win together, only Zheng Zhiyuan will be recognized as the official winner. As each of them becomes caught up in their pursuit of victory, they lose their solidarity and their achievements go plummeting. Will their team spirit ever return?
To The Fore features appearances from Wang Luodan and Carlos Chan. Interestingly, its August 7 release is the exact same release date as that of Shawn Dou’s other movie, Time to Love (新步步惊心).
Check out a teaser trailer below, as well as the rest of Eddie’s Men’s Health photoshoot.
