  • It is Hong Kong actor Wayne Lai's first project in Mainland China. He is very drawn to characters that Cheung Wah-Biu writes so when he heard about the drama, he freed up a year of his schedule to make sure that he would be able to reunite with Cheung Wah-Biu on the project.
  • It is Jeremy Tsui's first time leading a historical drama. His last drama Legend of Dugu was his breakout role. Even though he played a supporting character, his popularity and pairing with co-star Ady An overshadowed the leads.
