This is the duo’s third collaboration together, after drama Chinese Paladin 3 and movie Reset. This news came out so suddenly because they have started filming today, everything done secretly until the release of official posters a few hours ago. Lol. Trying to keep a secret aren’t we? The story takes places during 1920s Shanghai and the theme is on the building blocks of architecture well into the modern world.
