Tian Long Ba Bu is a Chinese television series adapted from Louis Cha’s novel Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils. The story revolves around the “Eight Races” in Buddhist mythology. It is produced by the companies Zhejiang Hua Ce Media and Dong Yang Da Qian Media, and directed by Hong Kong television series director Lai Shui-ching. The novel was first published in September 3, 1963 on the Ming Pao newspapers in Hong Kong and Nanyang Siang Pau in Singapore. The novel became very famous and adapted into many Hong Kong and Mainland China movie and television series.

The first television adaptation was 50 episodes produced by TVB, Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils (1982), and most famous Qiao Feng character was played by TVB actor Felix Wong. Another famous adaptation is Demi Gods & Semi-Devils 2003 starring Hu Jun, Jimmy Lin as Duan Yu & beautiful actress Crystal Liu Yifei as Wang Yuyan.

Tian Long Ba Bu literally means ‘The Deva, the Nāga, the Eight Sections’, the major characters in the novel are based on the eight races of non-human entities described in Hindu-Buddhist cosmology, who are collectively known in Chinese as the Tian Long Ba Bu. The eight races are Deva, Nāga, Yaksha, Asura, Garuda, Kinnara, Gandharva and Mahoraga. The main focus of this novel is that Jin Yong incorporates Buddhist concepts with historical events. He is a very profound writer with a deep love for Chinese culture and history. Some real historical figure in this series is Duan Yu who was the 16th emperor of the kingdom of Dali between 1108 and 1147. Duan Yu’s father, Duan Zhengchun, who abdicated and became a monk in 1108. Duan Yu succeeded his father as the emperor of Dali and renamed himself Duan Zhengyan. If you are familiar with Demi-Gods & Semi-Devil you will remember the part where Qiao Feng is met with Madam Ma (Viann Zhang) who try to seduce him.

Many of his famous novels include The Condor Heroes Trilogy, Fox Volant of the Snowy Mountain, Laughing in the Wind , and Demi-Gods Semi Devils. Jin Yong is one of the most prolific wuxia writer ever in history! and if not for him we would have not many wuxia dramas available today. This is one of Jin Yong greatest novel, so consider buying the DVDs for your collection.

Wallace Chung stars as the bad guy in one of the top martial arts tv series, Nu Shui Han 2004, and he also stars in Rose Martial World & The Magic Blade.. Wallace Chung will co-star with Angelababy in an upcoming new 2017 tv series, The General and I.
