WOMAN KNIGHT OF THE MIRROR KNIGHT female lead Huang Yi recently promoted the film in many cities. Yesterday while promoting in Hengzhou Huang Yi appeared with her suit look from the film. Speaking of Qiu Jin's descendants praising Huang Yi's convincing interpretation, Huang Yi said that she did all her homework before hand and everyday she had to face impossible missions. She pointed out that Qiu Jin was a jill of all trade and master of all, everyday she had to practice with a variety of weapons and work on wires. Everyday as soon as she opened her eyes she had to spar with Xiong Xinxin.
Huang Yi was teary eyed when she spoke about Qiu Jin. She in order not to "vilify" the heroine everyday fought from morning to night. Later her body was exhausted, she could not even stand firmly or extend her arms. Sometimes she was unable to respond in time and was injured. At the time people joked that she lost all of her "heroine look" and looked more like a "bear" from the beating that she took. Huang Yi said that she was very demanding of herself as well because the character Qiu Jin was not fictional and was an actual person.
WOMAN KNIGHT OF THE MIRROR LAKE earlier faced suspicions and boycott from Qiu Jin's grand nephew Qiu Jingwu. The release date was postponed time and after. Qiu Jingwu stated that Qiu Jin's great grand daughters Lai Qishan and Lai Qixiang were "false descendants and false authorities". Executive producer Sin Kwok Lam said that Lai Qishan said something that she admired very much. She said that Qiu Jin belonged to the people of the nation, not just to any one descendant. Sin Kwok Lam pointed out that Huang Yi in order to play Qiu Jin lowered her own salary. She truly liked this script and making money was not in her mind at all.
