Chinese title: 山海經之赤影傳說
English title: The Classic of Mountains and Seas
During ancient Chinese times, the Dong Yi and Jiu Li tribes set out on a quest to find the mystical goddess Su Mo (Gülnezer Bextiyar) in the Peach Blossom Valley who can save them from a deadly drought. Chi Yu (Zhang Han) of the Dong Yi tribe was abandoned by his family at the age of 10 because of a dark prophecy that he would end up killing his own father. As he wanders the land, he is constantly fending off attacks from assassins sent by his father while also warring with his evil alter ego, Xin Yue Hu, which is drawn out by Bai Li Han (Li Chao).
Despite the fact that both Li Han and Chi Yu are one of the seven lunar mansions of the Azure Dragon of the East, Li Han will stop at nothing to stop Chi Yu and Su Mo from summoning the mystical creature to end the drought. Shang Guan Jin (Kenny Kwan) is a prince of the Jiu Li tribe and one of the lunar mansions of the Vermillion Bird of the South who helps Chi Yu on his quest.
