    Default 钟馗传说 Legend of Zhong Kui (2013) ... sequel to 天师钟馗之美丽之罪 Legend of Beauty (2010)

    The trailer was released a while ago, and the series should debut pretty soon.

    It is the sequel (or perhaps a prequel) to the 2010 series, Legend of Beauty.

    Unlike Legend of Beauty, which focused on drama and romance, this series (from what the trailer indicates) seems to be more focused on action and visual effects.

    The first series featured a handful of figures from Chinese mythology ... from Bai Su Zhen to L Dong Bin of the Eight Immortals. This sequel will feature even more.

    Hopefully the same things that made the 2010 series good (great direction, acting, music, and editing ... uncommon for mythology series) will once again be present in the sequel.

    If you weren't familiar with Legend of Beauty (2010) the first time around, you need to become acquainted with this sleeper hit by watching the end theme/credits (below). The productions values are rarely this high for a mythology costume drama. Most are quite terrible.

    I can't wait to watch this series!

    Basically, I pretty much everything that Bobby is in, but I also love mythology. I am glad that this one has more action in it. The previous one was cute and sweet with an exceedingly good looking cast...but love stories don't always do it for me haha
    I like me.

    Can't believe this series has already started airing. Didn't think it would premiere so soon.

    Qiyi.com has already starting putting up episodes.

    Despite the lack of CGI and HD graphic, the 1995 Singapore version of Zhong Kui seems to be much more entertaining.
