"Octagonal Pavilion Mysterious Fog" is the chief director of the famous film director Wang Xiaoshuai. He has previously directed the crime suspense film "Intruder". This is his first trial of a web drama.
Duan Yihong and Hao Lei, the leading actors in the play, have collaborated again after 15 years, as well as actors with excellent acting skills such as Zu Feng and Wu Yue, as well as new-generation actor Bai Yufan, who performed well in "Mountains and Seas" and "I'm Very Good in a Foreign Country". .
According to producer Dai Ying, the four episodes of the Fog Theater this year will show different perspectives.
"Octagonal Pavilion Mystery Fog" is not a standard typed suspense drama, but "suspense + life". The focus is not on "who is the murderer", but the internal driving factors behind a series of behaviors of the characters.
The play tells the story of a 19-year unsolved "octagonal pavilion unsolved case" in a water town in the south of the Yangtze River. The suspicion and estrangement between relatives are like mist in a water town that cannot be calmed.
When the murder happened again, the dusty memories and pain made people fall into the abyss of love and hate.
"Fatal Wish" starring Feng Shaofeng, Wen Qi, Fan Chengcheng and others is "suspense + fantasy", the work is full of futuristic sense, and even somewhat similar to the popular drama "Squid Game".

The young man who couldn't stand the temptation opened the Pandora's Box of desire.
"Gold Rush" starring Liao Fan and Chen Feiyu takes the route of "suspense + adventure".
The play is adapted from the hot post "1986 Gold Rush" on the Tianya Forum, and is set in the mysterious southwestern forest. It reveals the story of gold diggers that the world does not know, and focuses on the humanity and courage that people show in the face of money and desire.
In contrast, "Who is the Murderer" can be regarded as a standard suspense genre drama, which tells a story of 26 years of chasing the murderer.
"Who is the Murderer" director Sun Hao once directed "Celebrating More Than Years", and the starring lineup composed of Zhao Liying, Xiao Yang, and Dong Zijian raised the audience's expectations.
Zhao Liying starred as a psychotherapist in the play. In the previously announced trailer, she smiled and revealed a fierce light behind her smile, making her identity a mystery.
