Your Rating

Zhou Wang (Wu Zhuo Han) is the ruthless emperor of the Shang Dynasty. In an attempt to end his tyranny, the Nu Wa Goddess (Liu Tao) commands the fox spirit (Viann Zhang Xinyu), the pheasant (Zheng Yi Tong) and the lute (Mai Di Na) to assist the person who holds the five color stone. However, Shen Gong Bao (Zhang Ming Ming) steals the stone from Jiang Zi Ya (Sammul Chan) and gains their support instead. After being perceived to be a useless pawn throughout his seven years of captivity, Wen Wang Ji Chang is finally released. He studies under the tutelage of Jiang Zi Ya and wages war against the Shang Dynasty.

Fun Facts
The Investiture of the Gods 1 is produced by Jian Yuan Xin and directed by Wang Wei Ting. It wrapped in July 2013 after four months of filming and premiered in January 2014 on CCTV. The two leads earned praise especially Sammul Chan who gave a fresh and humorous take on the historical figure Jiang Zi Ya who is immortalized into a god with a youthful appearance. Nevertheless, the series' blatant deviations from the original novel, terrible costumes and bad styling were widely-criticized.
