Having fallen head over heels for Li Yi Feng in Legend of Ancient Sword. The follow up announcements of him signing on for the full length of the entire Lost Tomb web series (which is planned to span the next 8 years), makes my fangirl heart palpitate with joy and anxiousness.
The timeline is that there will be one season released each year, comprised of about 10 episodes~~.
The first season is set to broadcast through iQiyi on June 1 of this year…although how accurate that date is, is still to be seen. Considering airing dates get shifted around all the time.
Li Yi Feng as Wu Xie / Sean Wu
He is from the Hangzhou Wu family, one of the Changsha Old Nine, a group of families who have been grave-robbing for centuries.
After his parents death, he is sent to study in Germany but his overly keen interest in archaeology makes it futile.
He finds a map to an ancient tomb in an ancient scroll from the Warring States one day which leads him to seek out the tomb in the map. Wu Xie is an innocent and naive character who is loyal to his friends.
Yang Yang as Zhang QI Ling / Kylin Zhang
He is the last member of the Zhang clan with a mysterious tattoo on his shoulder.
A man with a mysterious past whose story leads the last few volumes of the chronicles. He is often hired as an assistant to many grave-robbing endeavors and is highly competent at it; very little is known about him, even his real name.
Liu Tian Zuo as Wang Pang Zi
Nicknamed “Gold Getting Xiao Wei”, he is a northern grave-robber (as opposed to Wu Xie, from the south) and teams up with both Wu and Zhang ; together they are referred to as the “Iron Triangle.”
