Synopsis:

Set under the reign of Emperor Zhe Zong of Song, the story revolves around the experiences of Qiao Feng, leader of the beggar clan, Duan Yu, a prince of Dali and Xu Zhu, a Shaolin monk. The three protagonists become sworn brothers during their journey in the pugilistic world.

Qiao Feng is the courageous leader of the beggar clan. Many look up to him as a hero for defending the people of Song. When Qiao Feng is accused of being of Khitan descent and labeled a traitor, he is shunned by his fellow martial artists. In Qiao Feng's quest to clear his name, he comes to learn the truth about his identity and meets the love of his life. He also crosses paths with Dali Prince Duan Yu and Shaolin Monk Xu Zhu.

Duan Yu is a cheerful and bright young prince of Dali. Because of his peace-loving tendencies, he runs away to avoid being forced to learn martial arts but ends up inadvertently mastering powerful martial arts techniques. Successively, he meets Mu Wan Qing, Zhong Ling and falls deeply in love with Wang Yu Yan and her godlike beauty. However, Wang Yu Yan only has eyes for her cousin Murong Fu which complicates their relationship.

Shaolin Monk Xu Zhu is innately pure. After being guided by a martial arts master, he also becomes a powerful martial artist. It starts the kind-hearted monk on an adventure he never imagined for himself. Caught in the conflict between Song and Liao, three intertwining stories are brought together in a story about their heroism.

I feel the same way. I actually like the girls, but the guys arent too convincing to me.Duan Yu doesnt look innocent :P , while Xiao Feng and Xu Zhu dont look impressive enough.  But at least they use natural colors, and it looked good

Yeah, this one doesnt looked very convincing ..but I'll watch several episodes just to make sure. I also think that Hu Jun's version is one of the best. His Xiao Feng is very powerful and heroic.

I saw pictures of the blessing ceremony a few days ago of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils. I have to remark that this version potentially has the tackiest, ugliest costumes that I have seen, especially on the women. The cast does not contain big stars that can capture the audience.

Hu Jun is hot. I cannot comment on his performance because I have not watched his version of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils.

 

I only like the 1996 adaptation by TVB with Felix Wong as Qiao Feng.

I remember that I was turned off by the pics of DGSD 2013, but I liked it after watching it on screen. Even Duan Yu was a lot better in motion, and I liked it that they gave him the chance to (finally) shine in the last episodes, with him showing more of the Dugu Nine skill. So, I'm curious about this one. Right now, I dont like the pics either. I just like the real sceneries that they use

oh Felix Wong was really good as QiaoFeng that is HK version

 

HK use to have some very good drama but they had been lacking in the recent years....

Slow motion abuse prevails in the D-G & S-D's trailer. I will watch this drama for Gao Tai Yu, or skip to his scenes. :P

Does anyone know yet if this will be adapted from the latest novel edition? I really want to see that story on screen, for several reasons, including Duan Yu's updated love story. I always felt that the older editions (and their adaptations) didn't really do his love story justice because it felt so cheapened and rushed, when the last twist should have allowed everyone to be with the ones they love. I watched the ending of 2013's adaptation and was more satisfied with how that love story unfolded, but I didn't like the editing/filming of that version. I'm still looking for a favourite Demi-gods & Semi-devils. Here's hoping 2019 will be it!

Looking forward to this drama. My fav character has always been Duan Yu. 

Almost every girl he meets turns out to be his half sister? Unluckiest guy in Jiang Hu ever!

Later they turn out to be his second cousins, but that’s still kind of icky....

How are the royalty Duans related? I'm talking about Duàn Yù's father (Duàn Zhèngchún), uncle (Duàn Zhèngmíng), and 

Spoiler

his biological father, the first of The Four Evils Duàn Yánqìng.

 

Are Duàn Yánqìng and Duàn Zhèngchún truly cousins? In the 2013 version, I thought Dāo Báifèng said that they aren't blood-related.
