Three years ago, very few commercial blockbusters would select a cast full of young actors. In the past, Andy Lau portrayed Detective Dee as a perfect man. This time, I decided to split his talent with three people. Mark portrays the young Detective Dee with great judgment and wisdom. William and Lin Gengxin portray a kung fu master and a medical healer respectively.” Furthermore, the film’s theme will be romance, but besides love, it is also focuses on friendship”.
