Zee Action is all set to bring this entertaining powerhouse to your television screen on Saturday, 21st July 2018 at 8pm.
Freed after 500 years beneath Five Element Mountain, Goddess Guanyin (Kelly Chen) entrusts Sun Wukong’s (Aaron Kwok) with a task of shepherding young monk Xuanzang (William Feng) on his journey west to retrieve ancient spiritual sutras that will pacify the Earth. They are joined by a pair of similarly disciplined creatures: the water-dwelling Wujing (Him Law) and the gluttonous half-man, half-pig Baije (Xiaoshenyang). When the party arrives at a wealthy Silk Road kingdom, they hear stories of a malevolent demon, who has been kidnapping and eating children. The pure-spirited Xuanzang is then himself targeted by the seductive yet deadly White Bone Spirit, Baigujing (Gong Li), who feeds on the innocent to retain her own youthful beauty.
Will this group of monks succeed in their mission? Will they be able to reach Buddha’s scriptures?
To find out their fate, tune into The Monkey King 2 on Saturday, 21st July 2018 at 8pm only on Zee Action!
