There’s a new C-drama to check out this month, the production values look decent despite the drama being a web only affair aired on Chinese web portal iQiyi. The small screen adaptation of popular tomb raiding C-novel The Lost Tomb (盗墓笔记 The Grave Robber’s Chronicle) finally arrives, much to the excitement or dismay of the legions of loyal fans of the source novel. Starring Li Yi Feng, Tang Yan, and Yang Yang, the story follows a team of grave robbers seeking treasures untold hidden deep within China’s many ancient tombs spanning thousands of years of Chinese history. It’s a nice change from the typical period C-drama or fluffy romance stories, tossing in adventure and intrigue in a setting that is more typical of Hollywood movies. I’m in the mood for a nice break from too much romance dotting drama land, not to mention my adorable little Feng Feng is the leading man here. Check out the drama stills and teaser trailer below to see if it catches your eye.
