Netflix announced on Tuesday that it plans to adapt Chinese sci-fi trilogy The Three-Body Problem as a new English-language series.
When I first thought of comparing Game of Thrones to the Three Kingdoms, it seemed pretty ridiculous. One story takes place in the fictional land of Westeros, an imaginary world where dragons, sorcerers and walking dead exist. Another is a romantic version of real Chinese history, with rivalry, reunions and scheming between three ancient kingdoms at a time when the rule of Han dynasty was at its lowest around 220 A.D.
In the morning of May 20, one hour before the final episode of Game of Thrones was about to air in China, Tencent video announced an unexpected delay.
