Dou Luo Continent (Soul Land) with Xiao Zhan and Wu Xuan Yi begins airing today ~

It was rumored, but never confirmed, and here it is. Lol.

Let me copy and paste what I wrote last year: Dou Luo Continent is an adaptation of the Chinese web novel of the same name written by Tang Jia San Shao. Our hero is Tang San, considered a prodigy in the Tang Sect, a sect specializing in poisons and weapons. He commits suicide after entering the forbidden place for inner sect disciples and gaining the knowledge of the Sect. He feels guilty and kills himself, but is reborn in Soul Land (title of the novel), with his memories intact (dun, dun, dun). In the new land, he is raised by an alcoholic father and remains tenacious in mastering new skills. In Soul Land, each individual possesses an innate spirit, which one can cultivate and strengthen, becoming a Spirit Master, a well-regarded profession. Our hero has two.

Airing 2/5 ~

How do you guys like it so far?

Sneak Peek of Xiao Zhan and Wu Xuan Yi in drama adaptation of Dou Luo Continent (Soul Land)

Dou Luo Continent is an adaptation of the Chinese web novel of the same title written by Tang Jia San Shao. As I read the synopsis, it sounds like beginning of The Untamed as our male lead also goes through a rebirth. Our hero is Tang San, considered a prodigy in the Tang Sect, a sect specializing in poisons and weapons. He commits suicide after entering the forbidden place for inner sect disciples and gaining the knowledge of the Sect. He feels guilty and kills himself, but is reborn in Soul Land (title of the novel), with his memories intact (dun, dun, dun). In the new land, he is raised by an alcoholic father and remains tenacious in mastering new skills. In Soul Land, each individual possesses an innate spirit, which one can cultivate and strengthen, becoming a Spirit Master, a well-regarded profession. Our hero has two. There’s an anime version of novel, which I’m interested to check out. The spirit master element reminds me of Jiro Wang’s Rakshasa Street, which also has an anime.

The drama was filmed a while ago so I was surprised there’s no news of it until the Untamed stirred the pot of popularity for Xiao Zhan. HA!
