Journey to the West (1986)(西游记)
"The Journey to the West" is a Chinese television series based on the classic novel of the same title, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. First broadcast in 1986, the drama tells of the legend of the Tang Dynasty Buddhist monk Xuanzang, who traveled to the place later known as India to obtain sacred texts. Protected by his three disciples, he faced many trials and tribulations on his way there and back.
Once the series was broadcast, it received much approval from both Chinese and foreign audiences. It was on show in summer vacation in Vietnam and became a perfect way to keep the children at home.1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
