It’s surprising to me this drama has little to no promotion online. What we have is an assortment of bts stills and finally an official trailer released last night. Candle In The Tomb: The Weasel Grave (鬼吹灯之黄皮子坟) is considered the prequel to Jin Dong’s Candle In The Tomb, belonging in Ghost Blows Out the Candle franchise written by Zhang Mu Ye. It stars Ethan Ruan as Hu Bu Yi and Xu Lu (in a made-up character), and follows Hu Ba Yi as he packs and finds an old photo. As he stares at the photo, he reminisces about his first tomb-raiding adventures and how he came about to become an expert raider.
I keep going back to this photo, trying to make sense of their huge difference in height.
Directed by Guan Hu (Mr. Six) and written by Feng Ji (Decoded), Xu Su (Fighting 5th Space), Zhang Mu Ye, Candle In The Tomb: The Weasel Grave has about 20 episodes.
