There is an old Chinese saying, "A human lights the candle and the ghosts blow it out."
Hu Ba Yi is well versed in Feng Shui with specialization in tomb configuration, which he learned from an antique book he inherited from his family. The knowledge saved him when he fell into a ditch in a snow avalanche in Tibet. And again when he and his friends joined an archaeology team to explore read morethe "ghost cave" located in Taklamakan Desert. As he helped the team navigate through the dangers, he couldn't help feeling that someone had predicted their every move and designed the traps and hidden passages accordingly.

"Candle In The Tomb" is a web drama based on the Chinese web novel series, "Ghost Blows Out the Light", written by The Ruler Under Heavens.

    This is my second tomb drama in the last six months. Candle is written well.

    Very excited about this one mainly because the director is Kong Sheng who also did 'Ode to Joy', 'Nirvana in Fire' and 'All Quiet in Peking'.

    Btw does anyone knows the title of the ending song?

      I don't think it's possible to find a translation because of all the technical terms (the Feng Shui stuff and all) which will make it a difficult job for amateurs.

    I didn't read the synopsis at all before watching (not even the title) because this was on my youtube recommended. So first impression was this is a typical Chinese 70s-80s post war expansion story. Imagine my surprise on episode 3 when the dead general became a zombie... I was like WTF?!

      Maybe you can go and read the novel to know more, the drama is just a chapter/book of the entire story.
