Promo Round-up: Martial Universe

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.
