The Untamed


Recommended Posts



Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo star in the 2019 Chinese television series The Untamed, which is based on the danmei novel Mo Dao Zu Shi by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu. It follows the travels of two soulmate growers as they attempt to unravel a string of mysteries connected to a terrible previous incident. Both domestically and abroad, The Untamed was a critical and business triumph, with reviewers applauding its compelling story, complex cast of characters, and lavish wardrobe and cosmetics. Due to China’s restriction on LGBT portrayals in films, the adaptation was edited with homoerotic subtexts although the original web novel had an explicit relationship between the two main male characters. It became one of the dramas with the biggest revenue in 2019. It has become a classic in this little span of time and is often referred to as one of the best Chinese dramas in recent years.
