Into the dark and shadowy caves comes another action-adventure drama with The Golden Eyes 黄金瞳. I’m seeing a predictable pattern here that typically takes the hero on a journey filled with mysterious and supernatural occurrences. It stars Zhang Yixing (Operation Love) as the main protagonist of a drama adaptation based on a novel of the same name by Da Yan 打眼, and I find it interesting that Nan Pai San Shu who basically created a whole series of books in the genre and worked with Yixing in The Mystic Nine is part of the production team as well.
For that, I wonder how the show plans to set itself apart to make this version of archeological exploration an engrossing one because there are so many to choose from right now. I guess I like that this has supernatural elements right off the bat since an accident causes the hero to have a pair of eyes that changes his life. It also stars Wang ZiXuan (Tientsin Mystic), Li LiQun (Sheng Suan) and Wang YueXin (With You).
