The Wind Blows From Longxi (风起陇西) is an upcoming historical drama based on the novel written by Ma Bo Yong (Longest Day in Chang’an). Written by Jin Hai Shu (The Identity of Father, and yet-to-air The Golden Hairpin) and Jin Yu, and directed by Lu Yang (movie Brotherhood of Blades), the cast has been revealed to be Chen Kun, Bai Yu, Angelababy, Sun Yi, Nie Yuan, Yin Zhu Sheng, Yu Hao Ming, Zhang Xiao Chen, and more, boasting some guest roles from Dong Zi Jian, Lei Jia Yin, and Guo Jing Fei. Reading the synopsis, I’m left quite confused by the double and triple agents status of the cast. It is set during the Three Kingdoms period when the Shu defeated the Wei using their powerful crossbows. Chen Kun plays Chen Gong, a spy/double agent hiding in the Wei State; when the Shu receives some false reports from Chen Gong, they send another spy to investigate him, and he’s Xun Xu (played by Bai Yu). Turns out, there’s another spy named Zhu Long in the Shu kingdom who has been secretly swapping out Chen Gong’s reports. Chen Gong and Xun Xu work together to expose his identity and secure peace in their homeland.
