Arsenal Military Academy (Chinese: 烈火军校; pinyin: Lièhuǒ Jūnxiào) is a 2019 Chinese streaming television series, directed by Hue Kaidong, with the script written by Princess Agents author Xiao Xiang Dong Er.[1] It originally airs 2 episodes daily on iQiyi, Tuesday through Friday at 20:00, and stars Bai Lu, Xu Kai, Li Chengbin and Wu Jiayi. The drama tells the story of Xie Xiang, who disguises herself as a male student to join the military academy under her brother's name.[2][3]

Synopsis[edit]

Hoping to follow in her deceased brother's footsteps, Xie Xiang (Bai Lu) enrolls into the Arsenal Military Academy in Shunyuan disguised as a male, with only her good friend Tan Xiaojun (Zhang Xin) knowing her secret. There, she becomes good friends with the country bumpkin Huang Song (Liu Sibo) and the quiet Shen Junsan (Li Chengbin), all while getting into periodic quarrels with her hot-headed and playful roommate, Gu Yanzheng (Xu Kai). Despite her small stature and weak constitution, she gradually trains into an able soldier, winning the respect of her peers.

These students soon uncover a dangerous conspiracy surrounding the Japanese occupiers, the Chinese resistance, as well as past royal descendants of the now defunct Qing dynasty.[4]
