Regarding why Wang Baoqiang was chosen as the protagonist, Zhou Xingchi said, This is a dragon-running story, in the same direction as my previousKing of Comedy. So I want to find a big star and have the experience of running a dragon set. So it can only be Wang Zong (Baoqiang). Except for Wang, he cant think of anyone else. Hes a superstar and runs through a dragon trap. Wang Baoqiang: So I am a dragon set superstar.
Zhou Xingchi was also very touched to hear that, calling him General Wang, confessing that he knows his experience very well and feels the same.
