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.
Aw man, there’s nothing that makes me less inclined to watch something than learning how many episodes there are. 😦
LOL. I heard ya. They need to stop making long episodes series, I think it should be at max out of 40.
I don’t think so because the longer it is the best it is and also the shorter it is the mysterious it is
This is an adaptation of Wu Dong Qian Kun.
It would be impossible to do this story justice with less than eight cours [approximately two years of weekly episodes] assuming the standard ~20 minutes of content per episode [excluding recaps and themesong and such]
I just wish I knew when this is airing, I love the novel and enjoy the manhua. Totally want to see this brought to life.
