Ice Fantasy (Chinese: 幻城; pinyin: Huànchéng) is a 2016 Chinese epic fantasy television drama based on Guo Jing Ming's bestselling novel, City of Fantasy. It was directed by Ju Jue Liang, and stars Feng Shaofeng, Victoria Song, Ma Tianyu, and Zhang Meng. The drama was produced by Shanghai Youhug Media and is broadcast on Hunan Satellite Television Diamond independent broadcast theater.


Drama Version

When the second prince of the fire tribe, Xin Jue (Jiang Chao), was mysteriously killed during his visit to the Ice Tribe for Ka Suo's coming-of-age ceremony, the Fire King Huo Yi (Hu Bing) finally has an excuse to start the second war between the Fire Tribe and Ice Tribe. With their parents captured and older siblings killed, the two remaining Ice Princes Ka Suo (Feng Shaofeng) and Ying Kong Shi (Ma Tianyu) escape to the mortal world and seek help from realm guardian Li Luo (Victoria Song) to help obtain ice crystals from six tribes.

After the Fire Tribe was defeated with the Deicide Sword, Ka Suo reluctantly battles his brother for the throne, but he wants nothing more than the freedom to be with his lover Li Luo. Ying Kong Shi does everything in his power to take the throne away from Ka Suo, while Yan Da (Zhang Meng), the Fire Princess, is willing to give up everything for Shi. Then, Ka Suo's loved ones all die off one by one under the conspiracies of Yuan Ji (Yan Yikuan) and Lian Ji (Kim Hee-sun), and he is determined to find the legendary "veiled lotus". A war between the Ice and Fire Tribe commences again, with Li Tian Jin joining the Fire Tribe to get his revenge on Ka Suo.

Novel version

The story is set a hundred years after a war between the Empire of Snow (Ice Tribe) and the Fire Tribe, where the Ice Tribe was defeated, leaving Prince Ka Suo and his younger half-brother Ying Kong Shi the only royal heirs and immortal ice illusionists left in the Ice Tribe. Conflict ensues after Ka Suo reluctantly ascends to the throne as his lover, Li Luo, and his brother go missing.

Ka Suo also accidentally discovers an evil presence lurking in the Ice Tribe's holy shrine. He and his companions enter the mysterious shrine, and defeated the head of the shrine, Yuan Ji, who was actually the mermaid concubine Lian Ji, only to find out that all the chaos was triggered by her. Ka Suo also experiences hardships in trying to find his lover and brother, not knowing that his brother has lost all of his memories and has become the Fire Prince under his mother's command. A war between the two tribes commences once again, with the two brothers pitted against each other.
