Webdrama The Legend of The Monster unveils stills and trailers

Feels like I’ve been in webdrama land for a while now. Can’t help it! The Legend of The Monster is another to air on Qiyi on February 26th (VIP pass), and is based on an urban fantasy novel written by Ke Rui. I tried reading the novel and was left feeling quite confused because of the numbers of characters! Interesting characters but way too many to keep track. The quick description you read is as much as I could glean from the story and baidu page. It’s basically a world where monsters and demons lurk among humans and live their very ordinary lives, trying not to get caught, until the day a greater evil force arrives. There is a human girl in the mix. Who are we kidding? There is always a human girl!

Stills:

Yang Shi Han (Beauty Apartment, The Legend of Zu). A 300-hundred years old Shadow demon. Lowest ranking group in the monster hierarchy, he works as a taxi driver, like others of his own kind. His group is supposed to live in the morning and die at night (like shadows) but he’s able to form a human body and lives among human, hoping that one day he can become a human boy. I meant MAN. Look at those abs. 😛

Yes. You didn’t see wrong. Whatever that you see. *whispers innocently*

Vin Zhang Bin Bin (The Chronicle of Life). 700-years old cynical and rebellious werewolf. He’s a manager at a library and only works when he feels like it. Freedom is his top priority and working hard is the last thing on his mind. Reluctantly, he has to work with other demons to save their city from outside forces.

Zheng Ya Wen (Why Do We Get Married). 1000-years old sexy vampire who works as the number 1 doctor in the city. Though she feigns indifference, she’s kind, helpful, and responsible. And sometimes a total badass.

Wang Yi Jia. An arts student who believes that monsters and humans can co-exist. She fights alongside the demons to keep the city safe from those with malicious intent. She’s the only person our wolf boy cares about.

Zheng Xu Dong. Honest, hard-working, but hapless. I believe he’s the young enthusiastic cop in the story.

Together.

      I swear you are always killing my buzz, anon! Lol. At least his abs are not crazy photoshopped like those of HXM for Health Man/similar magazines. 😛

    Haha vampire girl is so far my fav. She looks so good! Really badass too. Also the fourth pic of the main guy looks seriously like a frowny-Lu Yi. Webdramas are totally a thing now.

    Haha after watching the numerous vids, this feels right up my alley. Some cheesy supernatural action, dramatic and unrealistic effects, so up my alley. I’ve always had a thing for classic, mindless action, one of those case-by-case, crime-by-crime-leading-up-to-big-evil-baddie shows. One of the reasons I liked Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei so much back then. This really reminds me of the clichéd, unoriginal, but very entertaining urban fantasy series (english) about badass hunters taking down evil monsters and vigilante-patrolling book by book. The one cliché/trope I cannot stand though, is all the cool non-humans fawning infatuated over one measly, weak, un-special, totally average human girl. It…doesn’t make sense, esp when two rare, powerful dudes are fighting over her whilst she continuously gets hurt, kidnapped, and/or into plenty of damsel-in-distress trouble. Honestly. I can stomach pretty much any cliché; just please don’t make the two bros fight over the human girl. Bros before hoes…Therefore I’m really hoping the badass vampire girl gets some love too. She has very few scenes in the mv and trailers, so hopefully she’s not relegated to side-kick or pining girl 2. I mean, from what the mv shows, there’s definitely some bro-bro tension over the human, and both guys get some screentime coupling with her, so I really hope my worst nightmare doesn’t come true. Can they just pair off nicely?! What’s wrong with badass vamp girl?!

    NOooooo Just checked out dramawiki, and human girl is listed as the main girl, while according to the synopsis, the vamp girl is only “the friend”. Talk about friendzone-ing…seriously.

      Was I too subtle Juli? Lol When I read that our werewolf boy only cares about the human girl, I knew she’s the lead (plus vamp girl barely gets scenes in the teasers). X) It’s okay, we can love Vamp Girl more!!

        Like I was holding onto hope that maybe the other dude (ghost buster dude? shadow demon?) would be paired with vamp girl and werewolf with the human, but…nope. Didn’t happen. WHY does the human girl get all the guys?! Isn’t that a little too race-exceptionalism??? What’s wrong with vampires?! You’d think after 1000 years, she deserves a little love…

    Ah, Julianne….I love mindless, cliche, case-by-case, nonsensical CGI type action too! I will definitely be following this! I happen to like web-dramas as they are short and straight to the point. You can take a lunch break and get your drama fix through web-dramas without affecting your day to day routine. And they do not go into 100th episodes! Which is another bonus! 🙂

    In certain shots, vamp girl looks like Jing Tian. Speaking of which, I still have yet to side hide or hair of Legend of Ban Shu. I know it was broadcasted somewhere last year, and they’re rebroadcasting(ed) sometime this year, but…none of it’s online. Lol. Sorry Jing Tian, not that I don’t want to support you, but you’re making it pretty hard. Forgive me for quickly losing interest on this hard-to-find drama…

        Lol found it…not any more interested though. I went through a splurge and watched the first 4 eps, then skipped and watched 4 eps starting from ep 42(?)…and then sort of lost all interest. Really looking forward to Zhang Zhe Han in Migratory birds, cuz I really like him, and I’m trying to like his works, but Legend of Ban Shu really wasn’t impressing me…

          Zhang Zhe Han? Did you mean Zhang Ruo Yun, Juli? Can’t be mixing up the pretty boys now (there are more to come!!! Lol.)
