The King of Blaze 火王之破晓之战 which seemed to be following the route of a traditional fantasy wuxia has just pulled a one eighty to take the story to a modern day setting. Chen Bolin is no longer the god of fire but the president of a company and a scientist. Jing Tian is not the god of wind but a reporter. Zhang Yi Jie is a researcher and Lai Yu Meng is an actress. The new fight has the deities taking up arms to save the environment.
Come to think of it, the entire thing sounds a lot like Ice Fantasy and the later Ice Fantasy Destiny, but I’m inclined to think that The King of Blaze is just following the source material that was written by You Su-lan 游素蘭. Filming for part one wrapped last August and was immediately succeeded with filming for the sequel 火王之千里同风 that began in September.
