Can’t wait for this drama, even though the story has been rehashed so many times. I just want to see Deng Lun as a Hu Li Jing (Fox Demon). Hopefully he’s a nice Fox Demon and not an evil one.

This version of Investiture of the Gods seems to focus on Yang Jian as the main character. Deng Lun’s character appears in episode 1, at first as a nice guy who says he is neither god nor demon but himself. He saves Yang Jian and his mother from soldiers sent by the King of Shang to kill them.Howerver, he shows his true colours after killing the soldiers by sucking the soul of Yang Jian mother and attempting to suck out his but Yang Jian’s power stops him.

Deng Lun’s character is a nine tailed fox and is the King of the Fox Demons (his poster says his name is Zi Xu). He seems to be an evil soul sucking kind of demon.

The basic story is the King of Shang is a evil tyrant so Heaven sent down a fox demon in the form of a beautiful woman Da Ji to seduce the king and bring down his empire. Humans who have connections to the Heavenly realm and have great power have the potential to become gods.The other versions of Investiture of the Gods usually focused on Na Zha, who helped bring down the Shang dynasty and was rewarded for his efforts by becoming a god. This version focuses on Yang Jian whose mother was the Peach Blossom Fairy and was foretold to bring calamity to the world

I watched the first two episodes and I’m confused. Is this a loose adaptation? Because I don’t remember the story ever going like that, from the previous versions that I’ve watched. If Deng Lun’s character is a nine-tailed fox, then does he possess Da Ji later on?

 Yes, this version seems to be a very very loose adaptation.Later on Deng Lun’s character Zi Xu and Yang Jian both develop romantic feelings towards Da Ji, so hopefully this drama doesn’t become a train wreck. This story might be a tragedy, since falling in love with the kings woman almost never ends well.

I really hope this gets subbed. I don't understand a thing. :tears:

 

For now, I am just enjoying the view.  Deng Lun's visuals as the fox demon is so damn hot! :lol:

@frostflower14 Thanks for all the beautiful posters and pics and also the background info. I deeply appreciate it as I have no idea about what this show is about. Thanks a lot. "Evil soul sucking demon" WOWW I like the sound of it. Hahahahahaha. In Ashes of love, I loved his demon realm arc the most, so I'm looking forward to watch him in a similar character. Aaaaaahhhhhh this is going to be so exciting. 

 

PS. I can't help but giggle on how we all keep taking about Deng Lun and his character when he is not even the main lead here. Hee hee.

@kokodus, it is a little funny we’re all more interested in Deng Lun’s evil fox demon than the actual main character Yang Jian. I guess it’s because Deng Lun is more attractive than Luo Jin and hot evil demons are more interesting than goody two shoes protagonists.

I will surely watch this drama. Deng Lun looks so good in these posters! 

He was the only thing I'd save in Ashes of love.

I like Deng Lun but I think this production looks cheap and he doesn't really look good here in terms of the styling.

 

I guess Deng Lun’s hair and clothes depends on which identity he takes on. So far up to (episode  3 )he’s been evil Fox Demon King and a fake aristocrat (the pic of him wearing white and green)

I think the production team didn't invest a lot of effort and money on his styling as he was still a relative unknown then (4 years ago while he was still in university) and his role was only a secondary character. Now that he's famous, they decide to give him more prominent billing.

I love Deng Lun's billing in this drama.. as if he is a lead character. He is always with the 2 leads in every poster I have seen. LOL. I skimmed through the first 4 episodes, and I don't even see him that often. But makes me so damn proud as a fan how he transitioned to a star in 4 years. 

 

I still want to understand this drama. Not even auto-translating the Chinese subtitles can help LOL

I got up to episode 5 of this drama,I skimmed some of it but...

Spoiler

Yang Jian grows up as the adopted son of a Marquis and is Da Ji’s adopted brother.Da Ji has feelings for Yang Jian but knows her parents would never let her marry her “brother”. Yang Jian is an arrogant rich boy until he meets a beggar who beats him at his own game.His adopted mother is aware that he has feelings for Da Ji and that he is in danger if he stays with their family. Zi Xu (Deng Lun’s character) appears again disguised as an aristocrat who has come to propose to Da Ji. It’s revealed that Da Ji might be a fox demon too, when Zi Xu summons her with his music her eyes glow green.

 

The King of Shang wants Da Ji to become his concubine but her father declined the offer. As punishment, the king sends his army to lay siege on their city. Yang Jian is ordered by his adopted father to stay to protect their city,but his mother drugs him and makes him leave because the king of Shang is really after him (the child foretold to bring down the Shang kingdom)

Thanks for the summary! The one subbing in YT is still at Episode 3, if I am not mistaken. I am just waiting patiently.
