Sword and Fairy 4 is the latest fantasy Chinese drama to grace our screens. Based on the video game, The Legend of Sword and Fairy, season 1, Chinese Paladin (2005) is based on the first game. With game 2 not being as appealing, no season 2 was filmed. The third version of the game was adapted into Chinese Paladin Season 3 (2009). We got a sequel, Chinese Paladin 5 in 2016. Now, after 8 years, the fourth edition has been adapted into the 2024 wuxia series, Sword and Fairy 4 for season 4.

This C-drama has everything from romance and friendship to martial arts and adventure. The recluse, Yun Tian He, lives his life alone on a mountain peak when he comes across Han Ling Sha, a tomb raider breaking into his parents’ tomb. But what they end up finding makes him question everything he knows and sends him on a journey to find out what really happened to his parents.

Ling Sha tags along much to his chagrin, and on the way they befriend Murong Zi Ying, a trained warrior and Liu Meng Li who is linked to Tian He’s father. The C-drama’s large ensemble includes Chen Zhe Yuan as the mysterious Yun Tian He, Ju Jing Yi as the free-spirited Han Ling Sha, Mao Zi Jun as the swordmaster, Murong Zi Ying and Mao Xiao Hui as the affluent Liu Meng Li.
