For Huang Xiaoming this TV series is very special to him as - even though he participated in Wuxia TV dramas before, this one is different as “Yue Fei is a hero who really existed in history,” he said. “He’s not like the warriors I portrayed in the past, who all had a legendary quality and were exaggerated and dramatized. The Patriot Yue Fei is a factual biography of a hero, and it conveys Yue Fei’s bravery and skill, as well as his loyalty and dedication to his country. It will give everyone that type of steadfast and unyielding spirit of a hero.”
