Li Qin, Lin Shen fight drugs again in Undercover

Not Li Shen and Li Qin.

Not Li Shen and Li Qin.

Last seen battling the illegal drug trade in Hua Kai Ban Xia 花开半夏 together, Li Qin and Lin Shen team up again in Undercover 卧底归来. Lin Shen plays an undercover cop set to infiltrate a drug cartel. He gains the cartel’s trust and becomes the bodyguard of its leader’s daughter (Li Qin).  They are joined by Zhang Jiayi, Liu Yijun, Fu Jing (the very model of perfection in her role in Educated Youth), and Zhai Tianlin.

《Ming Lou’s gun pointed at Ah-Cheng’s head, yelling: “Speak! Once wrong word, and you’re dead.” 》                                                                                          – Paris, Winter of 1935

Producer Hou Hongliang confirmed there are talks of a movie version of The Disguiser and a second series loosely related to Nirvana in Fire, but with a different set of characters. Hou said he had originally planned to do a series for NIF, where each series is focused on a different person on the List of Langya.

In addition, author/scriptwriter Zhang Yong has written a mini-story of The Disguiser set when Ming Lou (Jin Dong), Ming Cheng (Wang Kai), and Wang Tianfeng (Liu Yijun) were in Paris.  This story is connected to her next book in the series, which focuses on the family of  Ming Cheng’s team leader “Ashtray”.     Below the cut is the translated opening.

I want the movie to be this prequel so much.  Just thinking of Ming Lou reading Dante in a Parisian café while Ming Cheng paints the Seine makes my heart melt. There they lit the flames of revolution and the future, and hid away that light underneath layers of disguises.

Someone has an enjoyment of watching Wang Kai being shot.

It turns out that while in Paris, Ming Lou and Ming Cheng actually became secret agents without telling each other.  They only discovered each other’s identity when Ming Lou was assigned with Wang Tianfeng to wipe out Ming Cheng’s team while undercover in the Blue Shirts.

Someone on Ming Cheng’s team betrayed them and his entire team got wiped out, leaving only Ming Cheng because he was studying in Leningrad at the time.  It was only then when he went under Ming Lou’s wings. Ming Cheng’s code name is jade porcelain.
