“Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils 2019″ Unveils Promising Cast

The sixth official remake of Jin Yong’s (金庸) classic wuxia novel Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils <天龍八部> have released a set of new character stills to give fans an exclusive sneak peek of what to expect in the upcoming year.

The novel, which was first published as a serial for Hong Kong’s Ming Pao in 1963, follows three protagonists who eventually become sworn brothers as their stories intertwine. The novel was first adapted into a film in 1977 called The Battle Brothers. In 1982, TVB adapted the novel into a two-part epic television drama, which starred Bryan Leung (梁家仁) as Kiu Fung, Kent Tong (湯鎮業) as Duen Yu, Felix Wong (黃日華) as Hui-juk, and Idy Chan (陳玉蓮) as Wong Yu-yin. In 1997, TVB adapted the novel again, this time with Felix Wong returning as Kiu Fung. Benny Chan (陳浩民) starred as Duen Yu, Louis Fan (樊少皇) as Hui-juk, and Carman Lee (李若彤) as Wong Yu-yin.

The upcoming Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils will be the sixth television remake. It stars Taiwanese actor Tony Yang (楊祐寧) as Kiu Fung, with rookie actor Bai Shu (白澍) as Duen Yu, Zhang Tianyang (張天陽) as Hui-juk, and Hong Kong actress Janice Man (文詠珊) as Wong Yu-yin.

Su Qing (蘇晴) and Viva He (何泓姗), both who respectively played villains in The Story of Yanxi Palace <延禧攻略> and Ruxi’s Royal Love in the Place <如懿傳>, will portray the sisters Ah-chu and Ah-tsi, respectively. 

Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils is currently shooting in Dali City, Yunnan Province.

      Except for Kiu Fung, the rest of the photos turn out better than expected. Still, it seems too soon to have yet another remake.
