When Your Highness came out in 2017, it was absurdly self-aware and gave a unique take on classic wuxia through a series based on a real online game in China called The Demi-Gods And Semi-Devils. Fans who have been waiting for a follow up will be happy to know that the sequel is airing real soon.
Your Highness 2 brings back the original cast of Kenny Kwan, Sun Xuening and Li Nuo. They are joined by Liu Qi, Wu Helun, Wei Ran, Ian Yi Po-chen, Nan Sikai and Xu Aimin.
It continues the story of Qin Zhan and Yu Chen after being transported into an online game in season one. After they unite the lands of The Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils game world, everything becomes boring for them. They then discover parallel game worlds different from their own and so, they set out on a new hilarious adventure. Furthermore, there are talks of the devil king’s arrival.
From the posters, it’s evident that there will be character crossovers from famous books, anime and games. Some of these include Wei Xiaobao in The Deer And The Cauldron and Jing Tian in Chinese Paladin 3. Sounds like a Chinese version of Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. Cool.
Vote for your favorite Chinese drama 2019.
