The leader of the Nine Gates, Zhang Qishan (William Chan) who was also the army commander of Changsha, started to investigate with Qi Tiezui (Ying Haoming) and they discovered a highly suspicious mine just out of Changsha. In order to solve the mystery of the mine, they decided to engage the help of Er Yuehong (Zhang Yixing) who was an opera singer that came from a family of archaeologists. However Er Ye was reluctant to help them as his wife Ya Tou (Crystal Yuan) was terminally ill.

The five of them later returned to Changsha and discovered the how the mystery of the mine was connected to their families’ histories and the Japanese’s sinister plot against Changsha.

This is like raiders of the tomb adventures....pretty fun and have mystery to crack.

EXO Lay's second drama I think.  First was Good Man.

I am really enjoying the chemistry and love line of Qi Shan & Xin Yue.  Wish ZLY has more screen time instead of the cameo.  She just steals the show with her cuteness!

I watched the first 8 episodes and am not sure if I want to continue... Is this worth continue watching? XD They haven't introduce the female lead yet where I'm at, so it feels a bit slow. Also, there was a lot of suspense... and some things were too scary/creepy for me. I saw on that fans had trending about who the main casts of The Mystic Nine is because there were episodes without William or Lay in it and focused on the antagonist and his issues.

there isn't really a main character...it's more the main family (William and Lay feature predominantly). Not all episodes focus on them though as it's story heavy not character heavy.

I couldn't deal with watching all the episodes myself...so only watch a few eps here and there =/

Hi everyone.... i'm a long time fan of ZLY and now slowly warming up to WC as well.  i cant help it, they are such a cute couple and their interaction on & off screen is just so adorable lol.

i guess its true that there really isnt any main characters to focus on in the mystic nine, its more about the story rather than the characters,.  I must admit i'm watching it more for the loveline between QS/WC & XY/ZLY.:wub:  And for such purposes, ep. 43 is indeed heaven sent lol.

I hv actually been sustaining myself with tidbits & spicy morsels from other websites especially the ones at  onehallyu.com (for subbed version up to ep 36) & centdevotee.wordpress.com (for recaps up to ep 44 to date).  I'm sorry but  i'm not too sure how to post the FULL  links under spoiler tag.

What a mixed bag. Watchable in parts and draggy in others. A premise that is entirely up my alley but the execution is all over the shop. 

I really liked the sci-fi elements but it's a pity that what the show chooses to show and to tell doesn't really enhance the storytelling. The main villain, some bug-eyed foreigner who looks so obviously nuts, is such a cheesy piece of work spitting out Chinese sayings at the drop of a hat.

Overall, the show was saved by the bromances... the male leads... Fo Ye, No. 2, No, 8 and Lt Zhang made this worth a look.
