Another member of Hong Kong's "Four Heavenly Kings" joins the growing web entertainment industry as Leon Lai appeared in the new web drama "Ever Night."
Lai plays an emperor in the web drama, which had started streaming in Tencent Video since October 31. According to reports, it accumulated 200 million "clicks" on its first day.
The story of "Ever Night" is based on the novel by Mao Ni, also known by his pen name Xiao Feng. It revolves around a border town's soldier who eventually rises to become the most powerful swordsman in the dynasty.
The border town soldier is played by Chen Feiyu, son of director Chen Kaige. Aside from Lai and Chen, the show also stars 71-year old Hong Kong actor Adam Cheng Siu-chow.
Actor, singer and film producer Andy Lau was the first member of the Four Heavenly Kings to dab into web entertainment. Earlier this year, he produced the five-episode web series "The Trading Floor", which focuses on how financial schemes work.
