Martial Universe 武动乾坤 follows Lin Dong’s (Yang Yang) journey as he levels up to become the most powerful fighter in the land, and protects the world from an attack by the demons. Zhang Tian’ai and Wang Likun play his love interests. It’s also acclaimed historical drama director Zhang Li’s (Ming Dynasty 1566) first attempt at a fantasy drama, so I’m curious to see the outcome.
The 40 episode drama has been split into two parts, and will air in the 10pm time slot from Tuesday to Thursday on Dragon TV beginning tonight. Watch on Youtube here.
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.
Martial Universe has released more images. Starring Yang Yang, Zhang Tianai, Wu Chun, Wang Likun, Shi Xiaolong, Liu Yan, Suo Xiaokun, Dong Qing, and Yang Haoyu, I’m not impressed with the costumes but I think they are passable.
Seems like lots of action dramas are going into production lately.
Martial Universe has released stills and a production video. Starring Yang Yang, Zhang Tianai, Wu Chun, Wang Likun, Shi Xiaolong, Liu Yan, Suo Xiaokun, Dong Qing, and Yang Haoyu, people looking forward to this series can get a better look at what they are doing to bring the world to life.
Martial Universe has released wishes for the New Year. Starring Yang Yang, Zhang Tianai, Wu Chun, Wang Likun, Shi Xiaolong, Liu Yan, Suo Xiaokun, Dong Qing, and Yang Haoyu, a good look at the costumes for those interested.
I think I’m going to have to see some of these costumes in action on this one…
Martial Universe has released more posters and a production video. Starring Yang Yang, Zhang Tianai, Wu Chun, Wang Likun, Shi Xiaolong, Liu Yan, Suo Xiaokun, Dong Qing, and Yang Haoyu, more for fans of these actors.
If I do end up watching this drama, it would be for Wang Likun.
Martial Universe 武动乾坤, the upcoming fantasy drama starring Yang Yang (I Belonged To You) is the latest drama to get embroiled in a public casting shakeup. Zhang Tianai and Jin Chen were initially slated to play female leads Ling Qingzhu and Ying Huanhuan respectively, though it was announced today that Zhang Tianai will be taking on the role of Ying Huanhuan instead, while Wang Likun (Somewhere Only We Know)will play Ling Qingzhu.

Fan Bingbing really does have a thing for famous Tang dynasty women. This is the second time she’s played Yang Guifei.
Lady of the Dynasty has released a trailer and is set to release on July 30th. This rendition of Yang Guifei stars Fan Bingbing, Leon Lai, Wu Chun, Joan Chen, Ning Jing, and random white guySteve Boergadine.
The real reason everyone wants to see this movie. (But how come we don’t get to see any of the other brothers like this?)
After releasing an international trailer last year, upcoming war movie Saving General Yang (忠烈杨家将) recently released a grittier new trailer, along with promotional posters and stills. The film, which is based on the legend of the Yang family, in which the seven sons brave death to rescue their father, will air on April 4th, which I find depressingly appropriate.
As expected, the trailer is full of fighting and killing and yelling and horses. On average, the crew had to use about 500 horses each day when they were filming. Check out the trailer below, as well as more stills behind the cut:
