Zi Chuan (紫川) is an upcoming historical drama based on the novel written by Lao Zhu. The story follows our male lead, Zi Chuan Xiu, from one of the three big families; he’s the adopted son of the late leader from the House of Zi Chuan, the most powerful faction that fought and guarded their land from demonic invasions, with history over two hundred years. He’s accompanied by two other great young heroes from the house of Zi Chuan. It’s the story of how these youths face off the internal and external forces to protect their homeland. As of right now, I’m unsure which actor gets which character. Filming began a while back but they have moved filming location back to Hengdian.
You can read the translated novel here at moonbunnycafe (ongoing).
