Sand Sea or Tomb of the Sea 沙海 is a 52-episode Chinese web series adapted from a novel of the same name by Nan Pai San Shu 南派三叔. Just like its ambiguous title, its trailer also starts-off with a suspenseful line, “I am Li Cu, these are my last words…”
Our main character, an ordinary senior high school student: Li Cu (Leo Wu Leo), has been kidnapped and brought to the Badain Jaran Desert. Of those who went there, not one has come back alive. The scars on his back, holds the key to the mystery of the ancient tombs. His kidnappers have died and he is next. As he tries to survive in this place, he meets the one that planned everything, from his kidnapping, to changing the fate of the world — Wu Xie (Qin Hao).
Under the threat of Wu Xie, Li Cu follows him to the ancient tombs. Together, they discover the stories behind the disappearing people in the pictures, the unexplained shadows, the broken cameras, the mummies, and more. Just watching the trailer is already nail-biting, I wonder how much suspense the real show has got.
Starring Wu Lei (Magic Star), Qin Hao (Strategy), Zhang Meng (Ice Fantasy Destiny), Yang Rong (Demon Catcher Zhong Kui), Zhang Mingen (The Mystic Nine), Jeff Ji (The Legend of Kaifeng), Zhu Jie (Falling Down), Zhu Jian (Untouchable Lovers), and Wang Haoxuan.
