Fantasy comedy romance drama There Was Once A Spirit Sword Mountain 从前有座灵剑山 stars up-and-coming actors Xu Kai (Story of Yanxi Palace) and Zhang Rongrong (Legend of the Demon Cat) as leads.
The genius and outspoken young cultivator Wang Lu (Xu Kai) possesses the soul of the legendary Ouyang Shang, and becomes the disciple of Wang Wu (Zhang Rongrong), an elder of the Spirit Sword sect who looks eighteen yet is actually several hundred years old. The bickering teacher-disciple eventually work together to save the world and find true love in the process.
Costars include Zhu Yuanbing (Miracle Healer) as Wang Lu’s best mate Hai Yunfan, Gao Yu’er (Story of Yanxi Palace) as Wang Wu’s best friend Fengling, and Guo Xiaoting (A Step into the Past) as the innocent Liuli Fairy.
Based on the fantasy internet novel of the same name by Guowang Bixia (the author’s name is literally His Majesty the King), the web drama recently wrapped up filming.
