A League of Nobleman (君子盟) is a Chinese TV show broadcast between January and February 2023 by Tencent.
Zhang Ping is an orphan who is in Beijing to take the civil service entrance exam but due to lack of money makes noodles to sell on the street. Lan Jue is a minister who hides a secret about his youth and his Father’s death. Zhang Ping, has a knack for his being a detective and helps Lan Jue solve a case, and their partnership, rough and smooth, takes off from there.
Jing Bo Ran (井柏然) as Lan Jue
He is an actor and singer, who formed the duet “BoBo” with Fu Xin Bo. His career began in 2009 and has taken off from there. He is 1/8th Russian.
Song Wei Long (宋威龙) as Zhang Ping
He is an actor and model. He signed up to be a model around about 2015. Then in 2016 he was in his first TV drama; Demon Girl, Season 2.
I thought this was a very well done decent drama.
The main story was good with a few story arcs within it of them trying to solve one main case and other smaller cases seemed interconnected in some way.
There was drama, comedy and some action/suspense. There was some good special effects in some of the “dream sequences”. There were people to love and people to dislike completely.
The introductory theme was mainly drum beats with some whooshing here and there, but it was short and didn’t take up too much of the show like some others. The end theme varied a little bit, from time to time.
The set seemed quite familiar, no doubt many of them are filmed in a similar location.
The last 3 or more cliffhanger episodes were quite well done and exciting as everything reached its climax.
I wish they had made the drama longer.
I would give it a 4/5. Something was missing but not quite sure what.
Where Can I Watch
I watched it on Viki but it can also be found on WeTV, Prime Video (not sure what countries) and Tencent Video.
