The drama counterpart for the movie The Monkey King 3 西游记女儿国 seems to be making headway fast as it drops its first and second round of stills consecutively. I plan to write a proper introduction once we get more information on the show but what we know for now is that unlike the majority of dramas that get produced without any inkling as to when it’ll air, this one is already set to be released on Feb. 25, 2018.
The gang will be heading to the Kingdom of Women just like in the movie though we’ve got a considerably younger cast heading the pack. Neo Hou Minghao as the Monk does not look like a monk in the least and comes across more like a rugged hero. He is only 19 compared to Feng Shao Feng who is 38.
The same goes for the rest of the cast starring Owodog Ao Quan, Peng Yu, Liu Ming Kai and finally, Bai Lu as the leading lady. I wonder if the events in the drama take place before the movie or whether it will be treated as a separate entity.
