The World of Fantasy, previously known as Spirit Realm (灵域) stars Fan Cheng Cheng and Cheng Xiao. It’s based on an popular novel written by Ni Cang Tian, which also has a game and an animation version. The story follows our male lead who is said to have the Heaven Fighting Race’s bloodline in him. It is said that 30,000 years ago, the Heavenly Fighting Race invaded the Spirit Realm and wreaked havoc in many races and multiple dimensions, until they were stopped by the combined efforts of the Hundred Races and disappeared. 30,000 years later, our male lead lives quietly in a household, appearing like a dummy to others but in actuality, he is in deep cultivation. Cheng Xiao will play his childhood sweetheart.
I don’t know either of the leads; but FCC is Fan Bing Bing’s brother and Cheng Xiao looks like the IT girl for this year.
