Bromance xianxia drama The Untamed 陈情令, a very loose adaption of Moxiang Tongxiu’s BL novel Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation 魔道祖师, has finally aired today. The series stars Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo as the two leads, with Meng Ziyi playing the third wheel. The series is available on Tencent here, with two new episodes every Thursday and Friday.
I would do a promos round-up but the series aired so suddenly that there are no new promotional materials other than the posters, stills, and promotional shoot previous posted.
The pugilist world is ruled by the powerful Wen clan, which dominates over the smaller Lan, Jiang, Nie and Jin households. The carefree Wei Wuxian becomes fast friends with the righteous Lan Wangji, and during their adventures, the pair find out that the head of the Wen clan is the evil mastermind behind a series of plots that would wreak havoc upon the lands.
Wei Wuxian’s attempts to protect the innocent members of the Wen clan from unfair persecution leads to disaster, and he goes MIA in the process. Wei Wuxian reappears sixteen years later, and works together with good friend Lan Wangji to solve a series of murder mysteries, eventually finding and defeating the true culprit.
