Here’s our first look Martial Universe, a fantasy period drama starring Yang Yang (Once Upon A Time) as Lin Dong, an aspiring cultivator who levels up to become one of the most powerful fighters in the land.
Wu Chun (currently seen in variety show Dad, Where Are We Going?) plays Lin Langtian, Lin Dong’s his fellow clan member and nemesis. Zhang Tian’ai (Legend of the Naga Pearls) and Wang Likun (Legend of Heavenly Tear: Phoenix Warriors) round out the main quartet as Lin Dong’s love interests.
Lin Langtian eventually joins the demons in their planned takeover of the mortal world, and Lin Dong forms an alliance with the rest of the pugilist world to defeat the evil beings once and for all.
Directed by Zhang Li (Great Ming Dynasty 1566, Forty Nine Day Memorial), Martial Universe will air next year as a weekly drama on Hunan TV, and run for 60 episodes.
