Sneak Peek at Nicky Wu and Wallace Huo for Xing Ming Shi Ye (刑名师爷)

After watching and liking Wallace Huo's performance in Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei, as well as Nicky Wu in Bu Bu Jing Xin (步步惊心), it piqued my interest that the two of them are going to be in Xing Ming Shi Ye (刑名师爷).

Xing Ming Shi Ye (刑名师爷) the drama is adapted from the novel of the same name, and has Nicky playing Duan Ping (段平), a discreet, smart, and bold crime solver.While Wallace plays his partner in crime, oops I mean solving crimes. The drama involves the solving of crimes by the two main leads (Nicky and Wallace), and how they use their different approaches to solve the crimes together: one methodical and analytical, while the other is more of a hands on and scientific crime solver.

Going by the photos I'm guessing that Nicky will be the serious crime solving using analysis and methodology, while Wallace will be the more scientific hands on crime solver. The drama should be interesting because if going by the characters, it is most likely that they will be crime solvers who are reluctant working with other, bickering on who is right or wrong. If Wallace and Nicky have great chemistry, this drama should be lots of fun to watch.

Although Wallace's outfit for a period drama is a little.. out of place perhaps? It really looks like he's going for the Jack Sparrow pirate look. Don't what the background of Wallace character will be. Perhaps a foreign pirate of sorts? Maybe I'll know if I were to read the novel, if I were to read.

Anyways, the drama just started filming, so it’ll probably get a mid-to-late 2012 release date. I can't wait!
