Following on the heels of last year’s blockbuster hit series The Untamed, Legend of Fei is also an adaptation of the novel Bandit by Chinese author Priest. In the titular role of Zhou Fei, a young heroine and warrior, is actress Zhao Li Ying in her first role after going on maternity leave. Her previous roles include starring turns in Our Glamorous Time and The Story of Minglan. Playing her fellow warrior and romantic interest is matinee idol and superstar Wang Yibo, who plays Xie Yun, a warrior prince and martial artist who saves Zhou Fei’s life and joins her on her quest. The 22-year old Yibo achieved international fame when he played one of the leads of The Untamed, which was not only loved by audiences from all over but also expanded into collectibles and makeup lines.
Legend of Fei tells the story of the 48 Strongholds of the Shu Mountains and the warriors and bandits who are sworn to protect it. Zhou Fei (Zhao Li Ying) is the granddaughter of the man who built the fortress and her family has protected it for generations. The fortress was meant to protect the mortal realm from supernatural threats. Now a young woman, Zhou Fei longs to see the outside world, and has repeatedly attempted to flee. During one of these attempts, she is saved from drowning by a young warrior, Xie Yun (Wang Yibo). Both Fei and Yun find an unlikely friendship and decide to train together. Before long, they find themselves in the midst of an epic battle with malevolent forces. As their relationship grows, old secrets start to emerge including the mystery behind Xie Yun’s true identity.
