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.
The Killing of Three Thousands Crows (三千鸦杀) is adapted from the novel by Shi Si Lang and stars Zheng Ye Cheng and Zhao Lu Si in a romance that started ten lifetimes ago. She’s the princess of a fallen nation, The Great Yan. To save her own people from enslavement, she vows to find the magical lamp. During her search, she hides out at Xiang Qu Mountain and works there as a servant under the constant teasing of our male lead. Our hero turns out to be the lamp wick to the magical lamp. When the lamp is lit, he will disappear. At the same time, the person who lights the lamp will also be sacrificed! This is an interesting twist. So they are both dead? Lol. I can’t tell you more than that….won’t be fun for your journey. xD
