The Witness is a thrilling action movie starring Yang Mi and Lu Han. Did you know that Lu Han, the popular idol singer-actor, sang the theme song even though the song was supposedly sung by another character in the movie? Read on for some interesting things you should know about the suspenseful mystery with a twist. There are even two handsome actors from Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms appearing in this movie.

1. The Witness is a remake from a famous Korean movie Blind and is directed by the same Korean director Ahn Sang Hoon, who said he used the opportunity to improve the characterization. Stay around at the end of the movie, you'll see Kim Ha Neul and Yoo Seung Ho, the Korean stars of the original movie, listed in the credits.


2. Yang Mi visited blind people to experience how they lived in order to give a positive and convincing portrayal of an independent blind woman who lives by herself with her dog.


3. Lu Han plays a young singer who skates a lot. He practiced hard on skating and performed many action scenes himself. 

During a fighting scene with the villain, he didn't avoid fast enough and was hit on the face by the other actor.


4. There is no romance in the drama. The gripping story is about a rebellious young man and a blind woman who had lost her brother meeting under pressure and misunderstanding, but they eventually team up to help the police.


5. Lu Han sings the theme songs in the movie. One song in particular was supposedly sung by the brother of Yang Mi's character, but it's actually sung by Lu Han.

Here is a behind-the-scene clip when Lu Han sings it without music:


The movie is supported by a great cast. You'd probably be delighted to find two cute guys from Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (which also stars Yang Mi) making memorable appearances here. 

6. Liu Ruilin plays theYang Mi's brother, who is a talented singer but dies in a tragic accident. Do you recognize the cute actor as the 16th Discipline in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms?


7. Lai Yi plays a fumbling detective who provides a few moments of comic relief. 

Underneath his glasses in the movie, do you recognize the handsome First Disciple in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms?
