Lay of EXO is starring in the upcoming Chinese drama ‘Old Nine Gates‘, which has been hyped for centuries. ‘Old Nine Gates’ is the prequel to one the most ridiculous Chinese dramas I’ve ever watched, ‘The Lost Tomb‘, which all Asian Junkie readers should view immediately. It’s only 10 episodes and it’s on Viki.
Don’t miss “The Lost Tomb,” an epic tale of action and adventure! Wu Xie’s (Li Yi Feng 李易峰) grandfather was one of the infamous nine grave diggers who dug up from a Warring State tomb, a silk manuscript of the Warring States. Now that the Warring State silk manuscript has resurfaced again, the younger generation embark on a treasure hunt. None has ever thought that they would get caught up to an unfathomable mystery. If you’re a fan of “Tomb Raider,” “National Treasure” and “The Mummy,” you’ll love “The Lost Tomb”! “The Lost Tomb” is a Chinese drama series directed by Law Wing Cheong. It is based on a series of novels by the same title (also known as DAOMU) written by Kenny Xu Lei. “The Lost Tomb” also is known in English as the “Grave Robbers Chronicles” and “Grave Robbery Note.”
Considering these dramas are based a series of extremely popular online novels, and that ‘Old Nine Gates’ has 48 episodes that they’re splitting up into sections, this essentially means there’s probably going to be around four seasons or so.
So ‘Old Nine Gates’ could be the next ‘Harry Potter‘ in a way, and if Lay does well, EXO’s summer promotions could be his last.
Looking forward to it for multiple reasons.
